After spending a weekend golfing in New Jersey, the first family arrived back in Washington, DC, with Melania Trump’s parents in tow as the First Lady and her 11-year-old son settle down in the White House full-time – and just in time for the president’s birthday.

Melania and Donald Trump’s son, Barron Trump, finally joined the president at the White House ahead of his 71st birthday on Wednesday.
The trio were seen arriving at Andrews Air Force base in Maryland on Sunday before landing in DC and walking across the South Lawn to the White House once they stepped off Marine One.
Barron was seen wearing a t-shirt with, ‘The Expert’ written on it as his mom and dad held hands.
Melania’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, who now both live in the US but return to their home country of Slovenia every year, also joined the Trumps as they walked toward the White House.
The Knavs are also expected to become more familiar faces around the White House as they help care for Barron, but the couple doesn’t plan to relocate full time to DC.
Barron’s Slovenian grandparents currently live with their daughter and grandson in the Trump Tower penthouse.
They also spend most weekends with the Trumps at Mar-a-Lago, or at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
It was reported last week that the first lady and Barron were scheduled to move into the White House on June 14, the president’s birthday, an occasion he’s been known in the past to celebrate lavishly.
But around 8pm on Sunday, the first lady tweeted: ‘Looking forward to the memories we’ll make in our new home! #Movingday.’
And shortly after, her communications director, Stephanie Grisham confirmed the move-in with a tweet.

‘It’s official! @FLOTUS & Barron have made the move to DC! #WelcomeHome,’ Melania’s communications director, tweeted Sunday night.
Melania and Barron have spent the first five months of Trump’s presidency living in Manhattan’s Trump Tower, while Barron finished out the school year in New York.
The long anticipated arrival of Melania, who is described as ‘extremely protective’ of her husband in a recent Politico report, has White House watchers speculating that she could bring a measure of calm to a presidency convulsed by early controversies.
Melania’s move comes amid the seemingly endless barrage of self-inflicted wounds, damaging Russia-related news leaks, vicious White House infighting and other turmoil that have hobbled and distracted the Trump presidency since it set up shop in the executive mansion on January 20.
For Melania, the move brings a sometimes reclusive first lady directly into the round-the-clock spotlight that is life at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Melania has mostly kept a low profile since her real estate mogul husband became president.
Her biggest public outing came last month when she and Trump visited the Middle East and Europe on a trip that the White House later praised as a resounding success for the political and diplomatic neophyte president.
