McLEAN, Virginia — President Barack Obama is wrapping up a leisurely weekend with his family.

Obama, wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha took a walk Sunday along trails just outside Washington at Great Falls Park in Virginia. He also visited the park along the Potomac River last June.

The president greeted two eager children and took a selfie with an onlooker before starting along the woody trail. The 50-minute trek concluded as a light drizzle began.

The day before, Obama spent his Saturday afternoon golfing at Joint Base Andrews.

The president's busy week ahead includes hosting Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates, and honoring the Ohio State University Buckeyes football team, the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champions and the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots.
