Obamas arrive in Hawaii for final vacation as first family


President Obama and his family arrived in Hawaii early Saturday morning for their last vacation as the first family.

{mosads}The president, first lady Michelle Obama and their two daughters landed at Joint Base Pearl Harbor just before 4 a.m. Eastern for their annual holiday trip to the president’s home state.

Gov. David Ige, Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii), and Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell greeted the Obamas on the tarmac, which was wet due to rain showers.

The First Family will vacation in Oahu for two weeks, as they do every year for the holidays.

Obama will also meet with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the Pearl Harbor memorial during this trip.  Abe will be the first Japanese leader to visit the memorial.
