The Obamas boarded Air Force One for the first time together on Friday afternoon en route to Chicago. The family plans to spend the long holiday weekend at their Hyde Park home, which they jokingly refer to as their Kennebunkport, a reference to the sprawling Bush family estate in Kennebunkport, Maine.
The President's weekend plans include a Valentine's Day dinner on Saturday night with his wife and a likely basketball game with friends. Michelle's mother, Marian Robinson, is with the family.
