After eight long years of ups and downs, victories and defeats, progress and regression, Barack Obama, the 44th president of the United States and the first black president in the history of this nation, is leaving office.

Throughout Obama’s two terms as president, the life of a president became more highly-publicized than ever due to social media. But because of that, some genuinely fantastic photos of President Obama and his family have been taken through the years.

From dancing at the Inaugural Ball with Michelle to playing in the snow with his daughters. From reacting to the devastating news of the Sandy Hook to running around the front yard with his dog, the life of a president has never been as documented and shared as Barack Obama’s was.

So with all that said, enjoy these excellent photos of President Obama and his family.
