HONOLULU (AP) -- President Barack Obama is enjoying his Christmas vacation in Hawaii, the state where he was born.
On the third day of his holiday getaway, he worked out in the gym at a local Marine base Monday morning before heading out to the base links for a round of golf in the afternoon.
While the president golfed, first lady Michelle Obama spent about 30 minutes talking with kids who were tracking the progress of Santa Claus throughout the world through a site set up by the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
After Obama finished playing golf, he met up with his family at Pyramid Rock Beach on the Marine base, staying there briefly before heading back to their vacation home.
