Approximately how much did Barack & Michelle Obama's trip to Copenhagen to pitch for Olympics cost taxpayers?

As it turns out, Michelle & Barack Obama's pitch to have the Olympics lost out in the FIRST ROUND of decision-making by the International Olympic Committee. So the trip was a failure for the Obamas and all who sought to bring the 2016 Olympics to Chicago.

Considering the cost of Airforce One (for Barack) and Airforce Two (for Michelle) along with all the additional security, lodging, and other motorcade transportation -- approximately how much did this trip cost American taxpayers?

Would you call it in truth really a cleverly disguised "boondoggle"...???
Update: Note: 8 months of Obama does not equal 8 years of Bush. If you are looking for that measure, compare expenditures per month by each. This question does not ask that. It asks for a FIGURE on this ONE TRIP -- to the extent anyone may know or have information on the average cost for Presidential and First Lady... show more Note: 8 months of Obama does not equal 8 years of Bush.
