michelle obama continues to be awesome.

Out to the West! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's...Michelle Obama, building a playground!

Flanked by California First Lady Maria Shriver (and any number of secret service agents posted up on the roof of an elementary school), Ms. Obama was one of 600 volunteers who painted, hammered, and busted their butts off to put up a new playground at the Bret Harte Elementary School in San Francisco.

Kicking off the Obama Administration’s “United We Serve” initiative, this playground construction was one of several organized KaBOOM, a not-for-profit that brings communities together to build their own playgrounds. Parks, people, and a noble initiative? Sign me up!
