As persons noticed the First Lady was not with her family when she left Hawaii and when the three family members returned to the nation’s capital, it was made clear by insiders that they didn’t forget Michelle. Instead, she is staying behind in Hawaii to visit with friends prior to her 50th birthday which is just around the calendar’s bend on Jan. 17. The extended vacation for the First Lady has been called a part of her birthday gift to her.

The president and daughters departed from Hawaii via Honolulu’s Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam on Air Force One at approximately 9 p.m. on Saturday and arrived back in Washington, D.C. some eight hours later.

Reportedly, the president played golf most every day while in Hawaii while he and his family rented a house near a United States Marine Corps base on the northeastern coast of Oahu – a Hawaiian island. He stayed approximately 12 miles from Honolulu, the capital of Hawaii where he was born.

On tap for the president are the continuing battles with Obamacare and Congress, as well as preparation for this month’s State of the Union address.
