President Obama is peak dad in White House snow day photos

White House photographer Pete Souza can't pick his favorite photo of President Obama, but he does have a favorite day on the job: a snowy Saturday in 2010.

"Washington was under siege with snow," Souza wrote on Instagram Wednesday. "I slept in my office overnight, knowing I probably couldn't drive to the White House the next day."

Souza hoped that in the wake of the blizzard, he'd be able to snap some photos of the president celebrating the snow day with Sasha and Malia.

"I guessed ... that the President of the United States would be a dad and play with his girls in the snow," he wrote.

And the president did. Souza's images of that day capture Obama and his daughters running, romping and making snow angels in fresh D.C. powder.

President Obama wore dad jeans, of course, because what else does one wear in a foot of snow?

May the Obamas inspire you to make the most of your next snow day.
