First Family Departs For West, Michelle Obama Beats The Heat (PHOTOS)

The first family took off for their western adventure on Friday, looking ready to brave temperatures even hotter than Washington's.

First Lady Michelle Obama wore a white dress, with a printed blouse and pink cardigan layered over it. She wore silver flats. Mrs. Obama and Sasha wore their hair in matching buns. See pictures of the identical mother-daughter outfit the two wore back in June. President Obama was all-business in a tieless suit.
