    Obama at Thomas Sweet in Georgetown


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     pneedleman took these photos of President Obama, his daughters and entourage during a quick Father's Day trip to a local ice cream shop in Georgetown, Washington DC. pneedleman tells us that the President arrived, bomb sniffing dogs checked out the trash cans and newspaper stands, and Secret Service agents checked out the rest. He comments, 'We were all waiting in anticipation and around 15 minutes later, five or six black SUVs pulled up and President Obama and his two daughters came into the store. Everyone stood up and cheered. He shook some hands and then ordered ice cream or for him and the people with him.'

    He adds, 'I did get to shake his hand, which was such an honor.'
