White House photographer Pete Souza has posted a new crop of photos on the White House Flickr feed, giving us another behind-the-scenes look at President Barack Obama’s goings-on this summer.

While Obama may be locked in a tight battle for re-election, it doesn’t seem to be getting him down. From hanging out with Lebron James to feeding kids strawberry pie in Ohio, the president looks like he’s actually having a great time on the campaign trail.
