And share candid snaps of Blue roaming around the White House
After singing and partying at the White House in Washington, DC until 2am on Sunday morning, it was no wonder Beyonce may have been too tired to hold her growing daughter as she and rapper husband Jay Z exited an Italian restaurant in New York a mere 12 hours later.
Proud papa Jay Z, who was also at First Lady Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday party, was only too happy to lovingly carry the two-year-old from the Manhattan restaurant to a waiting car.
The precious bundle was dressed in a coat and hat, but with her parents leaving no chance of the toddler catching a cold, Blue was also bundled in a light blue cashmere blanket.

The family had been enjoying lunch at Frankies Spuntino, an Italian restaurant on Hudson Street in lower Manhattan.
The 44-year-old, himself dressed in a warm, three-quarter shearling coat, held his daughter close to his chest and covered her face with kisses.
Blue Ivy, who turned two last week. was also dressed in a warm shearling coat, winter white stockings and black buckled shoes. On her head was a blue cashmere hat that featured a small yellow feather on top.
And it seems she has quite a thrilling weekend, as she accompanied her parents to the capitol where Beyonce was performing at the First Lady, Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday party.

Back in New York Jay wrapped his daughter in light blue blanket.
While Beyonce, who wore a short gold dress for her performance at First Lady Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday party the night before, was bare-legged for the afternoon outing – despite the temperatures being around the early 30s Fahrenheit.
She wore a white shirt and skirt and shielded herself against the cold with an over-sized blue and grey jacket.
On her feet were a pair of platform sandals, which she wore with sheer green ankle socks.
The singer looked great with her blonde hair extensions pulled back from her face to reveal a pair of green jade dangling earrings.
At the White House, Beyonce performed her hits, including All the Single Girls. She was joined by Stevie Wonder at the birthday celebration which was attended by 300 guests.
Sources claim Paul McCartney, Jennifer Hudson, Bill and Hillary Clinton and Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg were asked to check their phones before entering the party so there could be no photos or tweeting.
Guests arrived at 8:30 p.m. through the East Wing, then enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the State Dining Room as well at the White House’s Green, Blue and Red Rooms.
One of the First Lady’s favourite singer’s Ledisi kicked off the evening’s entertainment followed by a half-hour set from Beyoncé.
Wonder took to the stage with DJ Cassidy for a medley of songs including Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours).
John Legend then appeared to sing Happy Birthday to Michelle and presented a cake while President Obama toasted to his wife.
The party continued until a none too shabby 2 a.m.
