Michelle Obama vacationing in Oregon, visiting brother Craig

| No Comments

(from KATU)

First Lady Michelle Obama is in Oregon, visiting brother Craig Robinson, the Oregon State University basketball coach and his family. This is her first visit to her brother's Corvallis, Oregon home. The vacation, not announced by Mrs. Obama's office, was reported by Oregon's Register Guard and other news outlets. TV station KATU said her mother, Marian Robinson, is also traveling with her. Big tip Mrs. Obama is in town: a plane lands Monday at the Eugene, Ore. airport with, as the paper notes, "a U.S. flag on its tail and the words "United States of America" across its side."

In June, Mrs. Obama took Avery Robinson, 19, and niece, Leslie Robinson, 15, to South Africa along with her daughters Sasha and Malia and her mother.
