Last day of Hawaiian vacation

Today is the last day for the Obama family vacation to Hawaii. Yesterday, President Obama and family visited the East-West Center to view the anthropological work of his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham. They also visited the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl to visit the grave of his grandfather, Stanley Dunham. They also spent time at the beach and President and Mrs. Obama went out to dinner.

So we'll see what the Obamas have in store for their final day before returning to DC to get back into their normal routine on Tuesday morning. They'll take a red-eye flight home from Hawaii tonight, leaving at 5:00pm Hawaii time. They'll fly through the night and return on Tuesday morning.
