KEY WEST (CBSMiami/AP) — Ahead of President’s Day, the Harry S. Truman Little White House was the site of the “presidential fishbowl” Saturday.

The event featured descendants of five former United States presidents discussing the realities of life. Truman’s grandson Clifton Truman Daniel, Gerald Ford’s daughter Susan Ford Bales, Lyndon Johnson’s daughter Lynda Johnson Robb, Richard Nixon’s nephew Donald A. Nixon and Herbert Hoover’s great-granddaughter Margaret Hoover were in attendance.

The quintet explored the challenges former presidents and first families face upon returning to “civilian” life in a President’s Day weekend presentation titled “Out of the Fishbowl, Back to the Pond”.

Truman spent 11 working vacations at the Little White House during his 1945-1953 administration. The residence also has hosted former presidents Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.
