Following Trump’s swearing-in Friday, the Obama family will set off for the West Coast to vacation at the Palm Springs home of their longtime pals, U.S. ambassador to Spain James Costos and his husband Michael Smith, the interior designer for the White House since 2008.

The couple live in a palatial home spread over eight acres in the Thunderbird Heights gated community in Rancho Mirage. This will be the fifth time the Obama clan has stayed with the couple.
