Obama Returns To Washington From Chicago

President Barack Obama has returned to Washington after a long weekend in his hometown of Chicago.

The president, his wife and daughters arrived at the military base just outside Washington at midday Monday.

His family had left for Chicago on Friday aboard Air Force One.

Among items topping Obama's agenda this week is signing into law the $787 billion economic stimulus plan that Congress passed last Friday.

The first family didn't have a public schedule in Chicago. The president played basketball with friends, visited the gym and got a haircut. Barack and Michelle Obama celebrated Valentine's Day with a dinner at Oprah Winfrey's personal chef's restaurant on Saturday.

It was Obama's first significant break since taking office on Jan. 20.
