Michelle Obama Jumps Rope in China with Her Daughters!

Michelle Obama plays a game of jump rope with the locals while visiting the Xi’an City Wall on Monday (March 24) in Xi’an, China.

The 50-year-old First Lady of the United States was also joined by her daughters Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, for the educational and fun experience.

“As I watched these performances and demonstrations, I was struck by how this wall, which was constructed as a physical blockade, now serves as a symbolic connection between China’s past and present,” Michelle wrote on her blog about visiting the site. “There you stand, on top of a wall that’s hundreds of years old – a wall that has withstood war and famine and the rise and fall of dynasties. Yet when you look down, you realize that below you on both sides lies a city not too different from one you’d see in America – a city full of cars and bustling commercial districts, but also quiet residential areas.”

“It reminded me a little bit of when I met with a class of sixth graders back in the United States – 11 and 12 year olds who visited China last year.” Michelle added. “They told me that before they left, they assumed they’d encounter historic palaces and temples everywhere they went, but instead, they found massive cities full of skyscrapers and bright lights.”

Michelle Obama Visits Great Wall of China with Sasha & Malia!

Michelle Obama and her daughters Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, pose for a super cute family photo at the Great Wall of China on Sunday (March 23) in Beijing, China.

The 50-year-old First Lady of the United States recounted the experience in her blog.

“Today we drove about an hour north of Beijing to a village called Mutianyu to visit a section of the Great Wall of China, which was simply breathtaking. The scenery on the way there was beautiful – a wide vista of mountains and trees – so the car ride alone was a treat. But then, running along the highest ridges of the mountains, you see it: The Great Wall – one of the great marvels of human history,” Michelle wrote.

President Barack Obama makes his first appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show since being elected into office for the episode airing Thursday (March 20).

During the interview, which was done via satellite, Ellen asked the president if he watches Scandal and House of Cards, both of which take place in the political world.

“You know, I watch House of Cards. I haven’t seen Scandal yet, but Michelle has watched Scandal. I have to tell ya, life in Washington is a little more boring than displayed on the screen,” Barack said. “You know the truth of the matter is, if you followed me, most of my day is sitting in a room listening to a bunch of folks in grey suits talking about a whole bunch of stuff that wouldn’t make very good television.”
