The Obama’s had set to work earlier Wednesday while their daughters were in school for the afternoon surprise. The swing set is an attempt by the parents to make the White House more inviting for their children.
Michelle Obama spokeswoman, Katie McCormick Lelyveld told Fox News that the girls were happy with their parent’s gift.
“They ran right for it. They were really, really excited. All four of them,” McCormick Lelyveld said.
The girls played on the set for almost an hour in chilly weather, she said.
The swing set was manufactured by Rainbow Play Systems based in Brookings, South Dakota company using American Redwood and Cedar lumber.
