Three months after winning Super Bowl XLVIII, the Seahawks finally got to visit the White House on Wednesday.

The trip included everything you'd expect a Seahawks White House trip to include: There was a 12th man flag, a defensive lineman wore a floral coat and someone even tried to take a selfie with the president even though you're not allowed to take a selfie with the president (Thanks a lot David Ortiz). 

Anyway, lets recap all the fun the Seahawks had at the White House.   

Quarterback Russell Wilson spent the day taking selfies. Like this one he took with Abraham Lincoln.

Speaking of selfies, Russell Okung tried to get kicked out of the White House by breaking the presidential 'no selfie' policy.

Speaking of getting kicked out of the White House, it's surprising that didn't happen to defensive lineman Jesse Williams, I mean, look at that coat. 

Seahawks punter Jon Ryan is Canadian, so it's somewhat surprising he was allowed to get this close to the president, right? Or does secret service not pay attention to Canadians? I don't really know. 

The Vince Lombardi Trophy also got to make the White House trip. 

I'm not sure if the Seahawks were having a scavenger hunt, but if they were, Doug Baldwin found the napkins first. 

Then there was Richard Sherman. He called this his 'Creeper shot.'

If you're wondering who the best president ever is, Derrick Coleman gives his vote to Bill Clinton. And that is Bill Clinton, not JFK, as one fan seemed to think.   

Finally, we leave you with kicker Steven Hauschka reflecting on the season that was...

Oh, and Seahawks fans, Robert Turbin said he's going to try and make this happen
