Yesterday, the first family marked the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday with a day of volunteering and a night of celebration. Barack, Michelle, and daughter Malia spent the day at the Browne Education Center, building bookshelves for the library and painting quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. onto the walls. After a day of giving back, Michelle and Barack got dressed up for the Let Freedom Ring Celebration at the Kennedy Center in honor of the civil rights leader.
Today, they'll be celebrating someone else: Michelle herself! The first lady turns 48 today. The president has been asking supporters to send surprise birthday greetings to his wife. Last week, Michelle proved you're never too old to sign up for Twitter. She officially began tweeting from @MichelleObama. See pictures of the Obamas yesterday now. Happy birthday, Michelle!
