Michelle Obama Builds Playground, Hosts Congressional Picnic On Wednesday (PHOTOS, POLL)

Posted: Updated:

Michelle Obama made a pair of appearances on Wednesday.

In the morning, she -- along with KaBOOM! and members of Congress -- built a playground at the Imagine Southeast Public Charter Elementary School in D.C. She sported a short-sleeved yellow cardigan, layered tank tops and cropped gray pants for mixing concrete and testing out the new swing set.

In the afternoon, she and President Obama hit the Congressional Picnic on the White House's South Lawn. The first lady changed into a striped Talbots dress and her orange flats.

Take a look and tell us what you think.
