The White House announced today that First Lady Michelle Obama and her younger daughter, Sasha, will visit Spain next week on a "private, mother-daughter trip" along with longtime family friends.

President Obama, as well as older first daughter Malia, will not be on the trip.

The announcement came after a denial from the White House to reports in Spanish media outlets that that the first family would all be vacationing in the southern Spanish resort city of Marbella.

A White House statement added that the first lady will visit with Spanish King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia during the trip.

The whole first family is scheduled to go on vacation this August to the Gulf Coast and to Martha's Vineyard.
