WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is headed home again.

Obama, his wife and their two daughters will travel to Chicago on Friday night for the weekend, the White House said Tuesday.

The president is expected to leave from Chicago on Sunday for the G-20 summit in Mexico.

Obama has not spent much time in his hometown during his presidency, but that has changed lately.

He returned to Chicago for the NATO summit in May, and he was also back in the city early this month for a fundraising trip, during which he spent a rare night in his own house.
