The Obama family has two reasons to celebrate the Fourth of July with the traditional Independence Day festivities as well as President Barack Obama's daughter Malia's birthday.
The eldest daughter of President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will turn 14-year-old Wednesday as Americans everywhere celebrate the birthday of the Unites States.
The Obamas are scheduled to host a Fourth of July barbecue for military personnel and their families at the White House Wednesday. However, the First family has been at Camp David since Saturday, and it is uncertain if Malia will attend the barbecue.
The special barbecue on the South Lawn today is expected to include a performance by country music star Brad Paisley as well as a fireworks display.
In addition to military personnel and their loves ones, Obama administration staffers and their families are also invited to the celebration, according to the White House.
President Obama and his wife also have another daughter, Sasha, age 11.
Independence Day marks a time where people across the U.S. gather for picnics, barbecues, fun in the sun, and fireworks. The beloved holiday is a trending topic on Twitter today, with "Happy 4th of July," "Happy Independence Day," "July4th" and "God Bless America" all becoming the site's top trends.
Moreover, Twitter users are wishing Malia a happy 14th birthday on Wednesday.
