Background: Mrs.John F.Kennedy returned last night (17 October) from a two-week vacation on the Mediterranean to a warm and enthusiastic reception from the President and their two children.
Long-legged Caroline Kennedy sprinted up the ramp of the Kennedy family plane at Washington for the first hug.Little John Junior shouted "There's Mommy," but he had to crawl up the stairs to the airplane door.Then it was the President's turn and he embraced his wife just inside the airplane door.There were no formalities at the reception -- just a husband welcoming his wife home.
The First Lady was sun-tanned and smiling...obviously rested after her two-week tour of Greece, Turkey and Morocco.Mrs.Kennedy came back with gifts and souvenirs, including a dozen Dior neckties for the President which she picked up in a stopover in Paris.
Caroline had a present for her mother too, a neatly-wrapped clay bird's nest which she made in her first grade class.But John Jr.finally had a chance to outshine Caroline.He got to ride all the way back from the airport to the White House on his mother's lap.
