Meeting Mrs. Obama

On September 24th my class and I went to Stone Barns to meet Mrs. Obama. We got to take a picture with her, and sing her a song about plants. There were photographers, secret service, state troopers and police, Stone Barns was crowded!

We also got to pick cherry tomatoes in the garden. We were treated to a delicious lunch at Blue Hill restaurant. Some of the kids got to make pasta with a basil sauce with the chefs and for dessert we had a plum crisp.

We got to go the herb garden and smell herbs like mint chocolate, a lemon herb and a tropical herb. We also got to see the other first ladies from around the world like the first lady of China and Haiti.

It was a very fun day. I will remember this experience for a long time.
