(CNN) - Just hours before he was scheduled to fly back to Washington, President Obama, his daughters, and other friends and family made a vist to the Honolulu zoo. As they walked by a primate exhibit that included White-Handed Gibbons, and Ruffled Lemurs, the president's youngest daughter, Sasha, yelled "they are so adorable'" when she saw the lemurs.
Obama's sister Maya Ng-Sotero, her husband and their children were part of the delegation at the zoo along with the president's friend from Chicago, Martin Nesbitt, and his family. The group was also joined by a zookeeper who showed them around.
Before the visit to the zoo, Obama and his daughters visited the National Memorial Cemetary of the Pacific at Punchbowl in Honolulu where Mr. Obama's grandfather is buried.
