Most people who go on a White House tour expect to see some famous portraits of presidents and first ladies past, and perhaps a busy politico or two.
But today, that all changed as one lucky group of visitors were surprised by a meet-and-greet with Michelle Obama and the family dog Bo.
All of the visitors seemed happy about the addition to their tour, even one teenage boy wearing a Ron Paul t-shirt.

Surprise! First Lady Michelle Obama made an unannounced stop on a White House tour to shake hands with all of the guests on Thursday
Wrong affiliation: Mrs Obama chose not to comment on the fact that one of the visitors was wearing a Ron Paul t-shirt while touring the White House
Rather than taking a jab at the Republican primary, Mrs Obama opted to avoid the issue all-together, and simply shook the young man's hand and asked him where he was from.
The teen, who has not been identified, was visiting from Tennessee with a friend, and it is unclear whether or not he was part of the student debate and Model United Nations teams that were on the tour.
'Welcome!' Mrs Obama and Bo greeted unsuspecting visitors on Thursday
Complimentary: This woman said she thought the first lady was 'absolutely radiant'
In addition to a number of students, there were families and seniors present, whose reactions ranged from pleasant surprise to full-fledged tears.
Shout out: One visitor was wearing a Ron Paul t-shirt
'Don't cry! Don't cry!' Mrs Obama said.
Mrs Obama looked particularly slim in her flattering black and white printed wrap dress. Rather than keeping the entire outfit monotone, she opted for a bright pair of red shoes.
The surprise visit with the tour group is the latest in a number of public appearances from Mrs Obama, who has been promoting her healthy eating initiative.
Her cookbook, called American Grown, is due to be released in April and details the White House kitchen garden.
