The First Family on Sunday evening wrapped up a whirlwind weekend trip to Chicago, as President Barack Obama headed to Mexico for the G20 summit and his wife and daughters went to Oregon State University for a commencement speech.

President Obama spent part of his Father's Day on Sunday golfing at the Beverly Country Club with friends including Eric Whitaker and Martin Nesbitt. Powerful Chicago Alderman Ed Burke (14th) was on hand and offered some golfing advice for the president: "Keep your head down ... and swing easy," the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

ABC Chicago reports that the president signed autographs and posed for photos before leaving the golf course.

The First Family arrived in Chicago on Friday and on Saturday evening attended the wedding of Tony Balkissoon and Laura Jarrett, daughter of Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett. The Obamas walked from their home in Kenwood to the wedding at Jarrett's house a mere block away.

Other high-profile guests at the wedding included U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and civil rights activist Vernon Jordan.

The trip marked the Obamas' first visit to Chicago as a family in two years.
