HONOLULU (AP) — President Barack Obama is planning his return to Washington after two weeks in Hawaii for a holiday vacation.

White House officials say that the president and his family expect to depart Hawaii on Saturday night.

The president’s vacation, spanning Christmas and New Year’s, is his longest to the islands during his presidency. He was born in Honolulu.

Obama has spent most of his vacation playing golf and staying in a rented home in the sleepy suburb of Kailua on Oahu’s eastern coast.

He has taken his daughters to the zoo and for shave ice and watched Oregon State play in the first round of a basketball tournament.

Obama also has done some official business, signing a defense bill and a budget deal easing spending cuts.
