Obamas heading to Camp David for weekend
The first family is making a rare trip to Camp David this weekend for a little R&R.

The retreat in the Maryland mountains has been a favorite of many presidents but hasn't been used as much by President Obama and his family.

It will Obama's 17th visit there, according to CBS' Mark Knoller, who keeps track of such events. At the same point in his presidency, Obama's predecessor, George W. Bush, had been 62 times.

Obama usually spends his weekends playing golf, as he will on Saturday, June 18th, with House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).
