For the fifth time during his presidency, President Obama and his family are vacationing on Martha's Vineyard. This year, the First Family is staying in Chilmark.

During the first week of the vacation, the Obamas visited the beach and went on a bicycle ride through the State Forest. The President played several rounds of golf.

World events were also front and center, as the President met with advisors and made two public statements about events in Iraq and Ferguson, Mo.

The President is breaking up his vacation this year, traveling back to Washington D.C. for two days to meet with advisors.
