Obama, daughters head for ice cream

President Barack Obama and his two daughters enjoyed an ice cream outing in Alexandria, Va., taking home puppy pops for the first dog.

Obama, daughters Malia and Sasha, and their security detail Saturday visited The Dairy Godmother, an ice cream parlor in the Del Ray section of Alexandria.

Malia had a waffle cone of vanilla custard, Sasha a cup of vanilla custard and the president a cup of vanilla custard with hot fudge and toasted almonds, a clerk at the store told the White House pool reporter.

The Obamas, departing to applause from staff and patrons inside the store and a small crowd outside, took home a bag of frozen puppy pops for their dog, Bo.
