HONOLULU — First lady Michelle Obama is getting a few extra days of Hawaiian sun.
President Barack Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha returned to the White House on Sunday after a two-week vacation.
Mrs. Obama stayed behind to spend time with friends ahead of her upcoming 50th birthday party. The White House says the extra time in the islands is part of Mrs. Obama’s birthday gift from the president.
The first lady turns 50 on Jan. 17. The White House did not say when she planned to return to Washington.
