U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama has joined popular social networking site Pinterest.

Mrs. Obama’s profile on the site went live Wednesday with three boards highlighting photos from around the White House, “great memories” and Father’s Day.

According to The Associated Press, Mrs. Obama captioned some of the photos herself, including recent shots of the Obama family skipping stones and playing minigolf, and older family photos including a wedding day picture.

By midmorning, Mrs. Obama had more than 1,600 followers on the site. Pinterest is particularly popular with women.

Ann Romney, the wife of Obama’s GOP rival Mitt Romney, joined Pinterest in February.
