As President Barack Obama celebrated turning 55 on Thursday, some of the people closest to him took to social media to wish him a happy birthday.
Vice President Joe Biden tweeted out a picture of braided friendship bracelets Obama had made for them earlier this summer, writing, "Happy 55th, Barack! A Brother to me, a best friend forever."
The two men's political marriage has grown continuously stronger over the years and has developed into a close friendship.
First Lady Michelle Obama also honored her husband's birthday with a candid photo on Instagram of the two of them dressed in formal wear.
"55 years young and that smile still gets me ever single day," she wrote. "Happy birthday, Barack. I love you."
The president and his family celebrated his birthday dining at Fiola Mare, an Italian seafood restaurant on the Georgetown waterfront — a favorite of the Obamas.
A group of Ugandans also sang a happy birthday to the President on Wednesday at a town hall meeting of young African leaders.
