Presidential photographer Pete Souza says he is considering this adorable photo as one of his Top White House Pictures of 2014.
Obama agreed to don a tiara and pose with Girl Scouts from Tulsa, Oklahoma during the annual White House Science Fair. The girls were exhibiting a flood-proof Lego bridge project.
The president, who is the father of two girls, is not afraid to bend gender stereotypes — at least when it comes to toys and sports. He was hailed this week while sorting gifts at a Toys for Tots event. In a video, he started putting sports gifts like a basketball and a t-ball set into the bin marked for girls, saying he was sure there were girls who wanted to play ball. He also placed a toy tool kit in the girls bin.
