While the nation’s attention is on the Olympic games in China, Barack Obama vacationed in his hometown of Hawaii, spending quality time with his family, visiting friends and of course, fundraising.

The U.S. Senator and presidential hopeful was snapped by paparazzi on Tuesday strolling on Kailua beach, hand in hand, with his two lovely daughters, Malia and Sasha, and bodysurfing Thursday at Sandy Beach. He also took time to visit the point where he scattered his mother’s ashes into the ocean, throwing a lei as a memorial.

Obama managed to sneak in some campaigning in between spending time with family and friends and shooting hoops at his alma mater, Punahou School, and raised $1.3 million at a sold-out fund-raiser on Wednesday at the Kahala Hotel and Resort.

Blindie knows this sounds a little stalkerish, but hey, not everyone gets to go to Hawaii!
