If anyone’s overdue for a vacation, it must be the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, and his family.
The four of them – Obama and his wife Michelle, as well as their two daughters Malia, 18, and Sasha, 15 – have been in the White House for eight years.
Eight years of being on call 24/7. Eight years of tough decisions, hard bargaining, being stalked by press and stressing that the world should not implode on your watch.
Now, it's time for a holiday. Starting with a round of golf.
TMZ reported Obama kicked off his vacation with 18 holes at Porcupine Creek Ranch in Rancho Mirage in California on Saturday.
He was accompanied by friends and a handful of secret service members, of course.
Obama told CBS News last week that the family was happy to be leaving the White House.
