First Lady Michelle Obama, daughters return to Washington after Chicago visit

First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughters are back in Washington, D.C. after a quick trip back to Chicago.
First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughters Sasha and Malia left the family's Kenwood home just before noon Friday to return to Washington, D.C.

It was a quick trip to Chicago, less than 24 hours. It had been a year since she visited her hometown. And that may be a hint about the family's future.

The first lady had no public events Friday, but was spotted dancing with her daughters at the Beyonce-Jay-Z concert Thursday night.

Yesenia Herrera of Chicago shot a selfie, catching the first lady in the background. Herrera said they had seats right by the stage in the pit.

Earlier Thursday, the first lady attended a Democratic fundraiser and was spotted at Billy Dec's Sunda restaurant in River North.

"We wouldn't want to see them go anywhere else but back home, I would love to see them back, especially the girls since we've seen them grow up," said Taleia Hill, a Chicagoan.

"I feel like they're a part of the neighborhood, they're a part of Chicago culture kind of," said Sung Park, a Chicagoan.

With their Kenwood home hardly being used, the White House has crushed rumors of the Obamas buying a California home.
