Obama daughters bond with Bush girls
U.S. President George W. Bush's family say they enjoyed a bonding moment with U.S. President-elect Barack Obama's two daughters during a White House tour.
Bush's 26-year-old daughter Barbara said she and her sister, Jenna Hager, took Sasha and Malia Obama on a tour of the presidential home Tuesday and even showed the young girls how to have some White House fun, People magazine reported Friday.
We helped them jump on the beds, Barbara said.
We used to jump on the beds when we were little, too.
First lady Laura Bush echoed her daughter's comments, saying Sasha, 7, and Malia, 10, were shown the inside scoop on White House bed-jumping.
They're really tall beds; you need to get a running start, the first lady said.
Also taking the personalized tour were Obama's wife Michelle and her mother Marian Robinson.
An unidentified source told People the next White House family was very impressed by their future home.
They all just said, 'Oh my God, it's just so beautiful,' the source said.
