Eric and Lara Trump at Mar-a-Lago for Thanksgiving

Eric and Lara Trump are soaking up the sunshine at Mar-A-Lago, where the First Family has descended to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday. 

Lara could be seen walking around her father-in-law’s resort in a red bikini on Wednesday after flying into West Palm Beach the night before. 

As Lara walked across the grass she sported a matching red cap, although it was unclear if it was one of Donald Trump’s infamous MAGA hats. 

Following loyally behind Lara was a pup that appeared to be the family’s beloved dog Charlie.

While Lara enjoyed some time alone in the sun, Eric took their son Luke for a walk around the resort. 

Eric could be seen holding Luke’s hand and carrying him as they enjoyed views of the water by Mar-a-Lago.

The doting father also snapped a few photos of his son playing in the grass.  

Eric later took to his personal Instagram to share photos of Luke enjoying the walk, at one point even playing in a toy Monster Truck with Charlie.

A number of the Trump family members will be spending Thanksgiving at the Florida estate, including the president himself. 

Trump vowed he’d be working hard at Mar-a-Lago, even though the Florida property is also one of his favorite locations to play golf.  

The president and his family were heading to Mar-a-Lago on Tuesday afternoon for their annual holiday retreat when he stopped to hold one last impromptu news conference with reporters.

‘We’re going now to the southern White House,’ Trump said as he departed 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. ‘We have a lot of work we’re going to be doing in Florida.’ 

The Trump clan typically spends the week of Thanksgiving ensconced in the billionaire’s private club in Palm Beach, and this year looks to be no different.

If the past is precedent, the president is also likely to spend his days golfing at another club he owns across town. 

When Trump left on Tuesday he was joined by first lady Melania Trump, his son Barron and daughters Tiffany and Ivanka for the ride on Air Force One.

It was the first time Barron has been spotted since August, when he joined his parents for a flight back from Bedminster, New Jersey to Washington DC.

Barron was nowhere to be seen earlier on Tuesday when President Trump pardoned the Thanksgiving turkey, and was also absent from Monday’s arrival of the White House Christmas Tree. He attended both ceremonies last year. 

It’s unclear if Trump’s eldest son Donald Jr – who is based in New York – will be at Mar-a-Lago for the holiday. 

Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, and the three children he shares with Ivanka were not traveling on Tuesday to Florida with the rest of the first family, although they had been at the White House for the turkey pardoning earlier in the day. 

The first family boarded Air Force One with coats but had ditched them by the time they deplaned in West Palm Beach. 

Melania Trump swapped out her black jeans and $9,400 Dior coat for a white dress and turquoise heels.

Golf has been a steady presence in the president’s down time.

Nearly every day over previous breaks, the president has left Mar-A-Lago early in the day to travel by motorcade to Trump International Golf Club.

The private course is not visible from the road, save for one hole where CNN has repeatedly captured Trump driving around in a golf cart on days when the White House refused to confirm the president was playing.

He has returned to Mar-a-Lago on those occasions late in the afternoon for dinner with his family, supporters, club members and politicians that are closed to press, although he has not always been able to prevent photos from landing on social media.

Last year, Trump spent his first full day of his Thanksgiving trip at his golf club in West Palm Beach. And he spent part of Thanksgiving Day there. 

The season at Mar-a-Lago begins annually at the end of October, but Trump is taking his first trip there this year closer to the end of November.  

Last year, the first family spent so many weekends on the property that it was dubbed the ‘Winter White House,’ a nickname that even the president has used. He has also referred to Florida as his adopted home.

As of October, Trump has played golf 159 times since becoming president – mostly at his properties in Florida, in Bedminster, New Jersey and near Sterling, Virginia.
