Malia and Sasha Obama summer 2012

First daughters Malia and Sasha Obama decided to vacation this summer without their famous parents, President Barack Obama and First Lady and spouse Michelle.

The famous sisters, now 14 and 11 years of age, enjoyed their own summer holidays by spending an entire month at a camp in New Hampshire.

The President said that he was feeling a case of “empty nest syndrome” for the first time in his life and that it felt strange and depressing not to have his girls around for such a long period of time.

But the president hasn’t been at home in the White House much himself. He decided not to take an official summer vacation this year thanks to a grueling schedule of campaigning for another four-year term of office.

Obama reports that his favored destination for his next official holiday, most likely with all of his family members, would be India.
