Obamas step out at 7:05 to greet arriving Nordic leaders and spouses on North Portico. Dreary day has turned to blue-sky sunset, perfect weather. POTUS is in standard-issue tux. FLOTUS is wearing a blush-colored dress designed by Naeem Khan, according to the White House.
Strains of string quartet could be heard from inside as limos arrived in choreographed sequence. First Iceland, then Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland. Each the same. Honor guard comes to attention, flag of country held by guardsman on door's right, opposite guardsman holding US flag on left. Limo pulls up, leaders and spouses get out, greet Obama's, then are escorted inside. Then guest flag is changed, repeat with next guests.
Then uneventful picture of Obamas plus guests in state dining room
