On Saturday, President Barack Obama rang in his 51st birthday with a round of golf with friends at Andrews Air Force Base. The game was a precursor to a Camp David trip, during which the commander in chief will relax with his family -- but not for long, according to the Washington Post.

He returns to campaign mode soon enough, with fundraisers in Connecticut on Monday and campaign rallies in Colorado on Wednesday and Thursday.

Next weekend, Obama will hold several birthday-themed fundraisers in Chicago, including one at his family's South Side home. Obama's campaign used the event to drum up small-dollar donations before the end of the July fundraising deadline, offering two lucky winners the chance to attend the fundraiser at Obama's red brick home.

In an email to supporters, Obama warned that his birthday "could be the last one I celebrate as president of the United States, but that's not up to me — it's up to you." Obama's team has warned that he could be outspent by Republicans and GOP candidate Mitt Romney.
