The President was heading over to the nearby Department of the Interior and decided to break with tradition and take a Springtime walk. On the way, he got a chance to meet with all sorts of folks, who weren't expecting to meet the President of the United States of America.
"It's good to be out," Obama quipped to reporters. "The bear is loose."
He greeted people along the way with handshakes, hugs and White House-branded M&M's. One enthusiastic woman asked the President to snap a photo with her family, "This is like the best day of my life," she said as the picture was taken. "Someone's gonna think you're, like, wax."
