They
spent two hours eating inside and left to find residents and tourists
lining the sidewalks to try and get a glimpse of them before returning
to their rental home.
Earlier in the day the Obamas headed out to the Makiki Valley Loop Trail, spending about 90 minutes along the path.

begin focusing on what he can get done with the Republican-controlled
Congress in his final year in office.
The president does not have any public events planned during the vacation, according to ABC.
On
the way to Hawaii, Obama stopped in Southern California to carry out
what has become one of the grimmest rituals of his presidency: consoling
the grieving relatives of victims of gun violence.
Obama
and his wife spent nearly three hours late Friday hearing from the
loved ones of the nine men and five women killed December 2 when a
married couple opened fire on the husband’s co-workers at a workplace
holiday party in San Bernardino, east of Los Angeles.

President Obama finally found his way to the golf course on Monday on day three of his vacation in HawaiiObama and his family are celebrating Christmas and the new year in Hawaii as part of their annual two-week holiday getaway from Washington

Fun ahead:
President Obama arrived in Hawaii on Saturday and found himself at
the Mid-Pacific Country Club’s golf course on Monday. He is scheduled to
return to the White House just after the new year to begin focusing on
what he can get done with the Republican-controlled Congress in his
final year in office
Obama said the meetings in a high school library were ‘so moving’ because the families were so representative of the country. 
The
Obamas’ vacation costs are being savaged by a critical conservative
group, which said Obama is treating Air Force One, which costs
$206,000/hour to run, ‘like an Uber ride’ ahead of his next jaunt to his
home state,’ Tom Fitton, president of the Judicial Watch pressure group
said.
Although
some expenses – including the rent – are paid for privately, the
emergency personnel and daily expenses of Obama’s security detail are
all publicly-funded.
Exact
figures for the trip – outside of Air Force One – are hard to obtain.
According to a Watchdog.com report on the 2014 trip, there is also an
Air Force cargo plane to bring Obama’s helicopter and limo, which costs
more than $150,000 to get to Hawaii and back.
A second plane brings a Marine Corps contingent at similar cost.
The
Honolulu Police Department also spends in the region of $275,000 a year
in overtime for its officers, while the ambulance from the local
Emergency Management Services costs $15,890 to keep on call.
Yet,
he still has not taken anywhere near the total number of vacations or
days off as his predecessor, George W. Bush, the report showed.
