(Newser) – Barack Obama's whirlwind trip overseas ended with family time in Paris, as Michelle, the first daughters, and their grandmother joined him for a weekend on the town. It was the girls' first trip to Europe. They wrapped up the action-packed weekend on Sunday with a trip to the Centre Pompidou, the city's modern art museum, followed by brunch with French president Nicholas Sarkozy. Last but not least? Shopping and a tour of the Louvre.
