In the candid new pics, 15-year-old Sasha can be seen hanging out with a group of friends — and a few secret service agents! — while on vacation. Some shots show the teenager clad in a bikini, while in others she’s wearing a pair of patterned shorts, a white T-shirt and a pair of chic round sunglasses.

Sasha’s group of pals reportedly included Vice President Joe Biden‘s granddaughter Maisy Biden. This isn’t the first time Sasha and Maisy have been spotted together — they were previously photographed attending the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada championship match in Vancouver in 2015.

Most notably, Sasha looks so grown up in her new beach photos! It seems like just yesterday she and her older sister, Malia Obama, 18, were the little girls in official photos taken when their father became the 44th President of the United States in 2009.

Just last week, Sasha similarly made headlines when she was noticeably absent at President Obama’s Farewell Address. According to a White House official, the teen simply stayed back in Washington DC because she had to study for a test she had the next morning!

“She had a final,” Michelle later explained during an appearance on The Tonight Show. “And it’s like, ‘You know the Obamas, girl. Sorry! You have to take your test. You can say goodbye later.'”

During Barack’s emotional farewell speech, the President tearfully thanked his wife and two daughters for their support the last eight years. “Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, girl of the Southside. For the past 25 years, you’ve been not only my wife and mother of my children, but you’ve been my best friend,” he began.

“[Sasha and Maila], under the strangest of circumstances you have become two amazing young women. You are smart and you are beautiful. But more importantly, you are kind and you are thoughtful and you are full of passion,” he said. “You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I have done in my life, I am most proud to be your dad.”
