President Barack Obama, weary from putting his NCAA men’s and women’s basketball tournament brackets together for ESPN, is reported to be already planning his summer vacation.

The Boston Herald reported Wednesday that an advance team is scouting Martha’s Vineyard for suitable housing for Obama, his family and entourage for his annual summer vacation in the second week of August.

The Obama family has taken monthly vacations this year, some together, but most apart. First Lady Michelle Obama stayed behind in Hawaii at the end of the annual family Christmas/New Year’s vacation.

In February President Obama spent Washington’s Birthday weekend golfing in California while Michelle Obama and their two daughters skied in Colorado.

The Obama family spent a long weekend in the Florida Keys this month.

This week, Michelle Obama, her mother Marion Robinson and the Obama daughters are taking a closed-press vacation to China.

In a press briefing given Monday, Obama officials refused to say who was paying for the Obama family’s China vacation:

Question: Hey, guys. Following up on Bloomberg’s question, can you tell me, does the White House or does the First Family reimburse the U.S. government for the cost of the children and the grandmother going on this trip? And is there any expectation of any protests in any of these areas while the First Lady is in China?

MS. TCHEN: Well, again, it’s similar to Ben’s question. We are not discussing or disclosing information regarding the details of the logistics of the trip. And as for protests, I’ll let Ben take that one.”
