President Obama spent New Year’s Day with his family, both past and present.  The president took his daughters and wife too visit a research and exhibit center featuring a display of the work of the president’s mother, the late Ann Dunham.  The exhibit features research that Ms. Dunham did in Indonesia and a collection of her personal artifacts.

The president also took a visit to the National Memorial Cemetary of the Pacific at Punchbowl, a place where the president’s grandmother, Stanley Dunham, is buried.  The president and his family took the visits shortly after he signed the 2011 National Defense Authorization Act, a controversial measure that pays soldiers salaries, but also allows for the indefinite detention of terror suspects.
