Former First Lady Barbara Bush Celebrates 92nd Birthday

Former first lady Barbara Bush is celebrating her 92nd birthday on the Maine coast.

She and former President George H.W. Bush are planning a low-key day Thursday in Kennebunkport, where they spend their summers.

A family spokesman says several family members were with them.

Her husband, the nation's 41st president, also is celebrating a birthday soon. George H.W. Bush turns 93 on Monday.

Thursday afternoon, the former president tweeted a photo of he and his wife and the following message: "Happiest of birthdays to Barbara Pierce of Rye, NY. I'm still the luckiest guy in the world."

The Bushes spend most of the year in Houston, but return each summer to their home on Maine's rocky coast.
