Obama was spending the weekend at the Sunnylands Estate in Rancho Mirage after meeting Friday at the compound with King Abdullah II of Jordan.  The President's wife and daughters are skiing in Aspen, Colorado this weekend.
The president is scheduled to return to the White House on Monday.  On Tuesday, he's scheduled to discuss the economy in the Washington area.
