The Obama women had a big day (and night) in the Big Apple on Saturday.
During the day, first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia attended the 18th Annual Arthur Ashe Kids Day, which kicked off the 2013 U.S. Open tennis tournament in Flushing Meadows, N.Y. During festivities, Obama addressed the crowd and promoted her “Let’s Move” healthy living campaign.
The trio then attended an evening performance of The Trip to Bountiful, starring Cicely Tyson, Vanessa Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr. The Obamas slipped into their seats at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre just as the first act was starting.
When they took their seats for the second act, the audience gave them an ovation. The Obamas went backstage after the show to meet members of the cast and crew.
