The First Family is en route to Martha's Vineyard to begin their two-week family vacation on the Island.
President Obama, the First Lady, and daughters Malia and Sasha left the White House to board Marine One on the south lawn. Marine One took off at 12:41 p.m., bound for Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. There the family boarded Air Force One for the flight to Cape Cod and the Vineyard for a 1:03 p.m. departure.
Sasha and Malia were chatting with each other as they boarded first, according to pool reports, and Mr. and Mrs. Obama followed. The President was wearing slacks and a button-down shirt, and the First Lady wore a blue dress with red piping.
Prior to the First Family's arrival at Joint Base Andrews, the Obamas' dogs, Bo and Sunny, were taken for a pre-flight walk.
This is the President and First Family's seventh and final summer vacation on Martha's Vineyard during the Obama presidency.
Military and government aircraft were seen coming in and out of Martha's Vineyard Airport this week to prepare for the visit, as seen below.
