All millennials traveling to D.C. have been waiting for the day when they could immediately post to Facebook every moment of their White House Tour. Well, that day has officially arrived — First Lady Michelle Obama took to Instagram (where else) to announce that the White House is ending its near-40-year ban on photos, effective immediately. Of course, there are still some restrictions, including no selfie sticks, but get ready for the social-media flood of hashtag WhiteHouseTours. Because nothing says freedom quite like the chance to take a photo in the Oval Office, here are some selfies from the first wave of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue photos to go up on Instagram.
