- We know you are itching to know how President Obama spent the seventh day of his family's holiday vacation yesterday in Hawaii. After much digging, we came up with the itinerary:
* Morning workout: Obama began his morning as he did many other days of his vacation by exercising at a gym at Marine Corps Base Hawaii. On the way back to the Kailua vacation home, a child sat on a shirtless man's shoulders watching the passing motorcade and children jumped on a trampoline on a gorgeous island day.
* Beach time: Obama joined the first family and friends at the beach in the late morning under sunny skies at Bellows Air Force Station in Waimanalo.
* Happy Kwanzaa: The president and first lady Michelle Obama sent prayers and best wishes to those celebrating Kwanzaa.
The Obamas said in a statement that the Kwanzaa celebration highlights the rich heritage of African-Americans. They say families come together on Kwanzaa to reflect on the past year's blessing and look forward to the promises that lie ahead next year.
