KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine (CBSMiami/AP) — Former President George H.W. Bush is celebrating his 93rd birthday with his family on the coast of Maine.

Bush was planning a low-key celebration Monday with his wife, Barbara Bush, and other family members at their summer home in Kennebunkport. She turned 92 last week.

The former president was hospitalized in the spring with a case of bronchitis, but his staff says he’s doing well. He arrived in Maine last month.

Bush, the oldest living ex-president, has celebrated previous birthdays by skydiving. His last jump came when he turned 90.

His chief of staff, Jean Becker, says he’s going to remain firmly planted on the ground Monday. Becker joked that she “hid his parachute.”
