Jenna Bush Hager, the daughter of former U.S. President George W. Bush, has shared never-before-seen photos of the Obama sisters’ first visit to the White House eight years ago.

Malia and Sasha Obama were just 10 and seven years old, respectively, when they moved into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and succeeded Bush twins, Jenna and Barbara, as the First Children.

In the sweet photos, which were shared on “The Today Show” last week, the Bush sisters are seen taking the Obama girls on a tour of their new home. Adorably, the youngsters are in complete awe as they see the White House rooms and slide down a banister in the residence.

Previously, the Bush sisters released an open letter to the Obama girls recalling their first meeting in November 2008.

“The four of us wandered the majestic halls of the house you had no choice but to move in to,” Jenna and Barbara wrote. “When you slid down the banister of the solarium, just as we had done as 8-year-olds and again as 20-year-olds chasing our youth, your joy and laughter were contagious.”

While discussing the heartfelt letter on “Today,” 35-year-old Jenna said: “It’s just amazing how fast eight years go by and how they’ve become these really unbelievable women, and we just wanted to make sure they knew.”

The Obama girls have certainly done a lot of growing up in the White House. Malia, 18, graduated from high school last year and will attend Harvard University in the fall. Sasha, 15, is continuing her studies at Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C. and is enjoying being a teen.
