My cousin’s youngest daughter Evan Bay got to meet Michelle Obama at the White House Kitchen Garden planting last month.
Eva Kumsher, Evan Bay Brakke and Caroline Maifield teamed up with White House assistant pastry chef Susie Morrison to plant onions.
As the planting job wrapped up, Evan Bay took a moment to let Mrs. Obama know they shared something else in common.
“We’ve got the same dog as you,” she said.
Mrs. Obama asked if her Portuguese water dog had curly hair like the Obamas’ dog, Bo. It does, Evan Bay said of Nala, her family’s pet.
After posing for a picture with all the students, Mrs. Obama signed school T-shirts that the students had worn to the event.
