Obamas arrive safely in Hawaii

The Associated Press

KAILUA, Hawaii - President Obama and his family have arrived in Honolulu to spend Christmas in Hawaii, where the president was born and raised.

Air Force One touched down in Honolulu minutes after midnight local time Saturday. The first family departed the plane and traveled quickly to their vacation house in Kailua, a scenic, sleepy beach town on the east side of Oahu.

Kailua is roughly 12 miles from downtown Honolulu. 

White House officials said the president's vacation itinerary doesn't include any scheduled public events.

No return date has been given by the White House. Obama himself said on Friday that he would be returning to Washington after Christmas.
