President Barack Obama closed out his family vacation in Hawaii the same way we all [wish we could] do — hanging out with Pearl Jam‘s Eddie Vedder.

The President, along with his daughters Sasha and Malia, visited with the Pearl Jam frontman and his family in Kailua, which isn’t too far from where the First Family was staying. While the meeting wasn’t too long — less than 30 minutes — the gathering was cordial.

According to the Associated Press, Vedder has been a friends with the Obamas for some time now, and he performed at a fundraiser in Florida during President Obama’s re-election campaign in 2012.
