Can We Join The Dance Party?

A photo of a two-year-old girl named Parker intently admiring Michelle Obama's National Portrait Gallery portrait went viral.

Once it reached Michelle Obama she immediately wanted to meet her. Michelle posted the special visit on her Instagram with the caption:

"Parker, I'm so glad I had the chance to meet you today (and for the dance party)! Keep on dreaming big for yourself...and maybe one day I'll proudly look up at a portrait of you!"

The meet and greet ended in a dance party we all wish we could attend! Will Parker be a future political activist? 

Parker, I'm so glad I had the chance to meet you today (and for the dance party)! Keep on dreaming big for yourself...and maybe one day I'll proudly look up at a portrait of you!
