On Friday, July 10th, 2015 our son, Corey had lunch with the First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House. 

As a winner of First Lady Michelle Obama's Healthy Lunchtime Challenge, Corey was invited to attend the "Kid's State Dinner"  in theeast wing of the White House.

The First Lady made a short speech, which included announcing Corey's Mango-Cango Chicken as one of her favorite recipes.  She even asked him to stand up and be recognized for his outstanding achievement.  The crowd applauded as Corey beamed with joy. 

The Firrst Lady was gracious enough to take pictures with all the winnersand parents of the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge. 

President Obama elated the children and adults alike, making a suprise speech to the adoring winners.  One by one, he greeted each "little chef" attending the "State Dinner". 

The event concluded with a visit to the White House Vegetable Garden. It was filled with veggies of all sorts including peppers, corn and tomatoes to name a few.  It was complete with a beautifully constructed hive for the bees, whom buzzed by the excited visitors. 

Slowly the crow trickled away from the warmth of the  Vegetable Garden back to the cool of the waiting coach buses.  As the buses pulled away from the White House Grounds, we watched our dream day drift into the history books.
