Soccer Mom & Dad

After a week of meetings with world leaders, President Barack Obama is enjoying some family time.

Obama left the White House on Saturday morning for a soccer field in northwest Washington where his 11-year-old daughter Malia was playing soccer. First lady Michelle Obama and the family dog, Bo, joined along.

The president stayed on the field sidelines with other onlookers and parents for about 30 minutes. As he left to return to the White House, several children shouted "Bye, Mr. Obama." Obama waved to those on the field.

Obama returned to the White House on Friday after a week of meetings with world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly in New York and at an economic summit in Pittsburgh.

He is scheduled to speak Saturday night at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual dinner.
