No high-flying antics for George H.W. Bush's 91st birthday

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Former President George H.W. Bush is celebrating a low-key 91st birthday at his home on the Maine coast.

A year ago, Bush surprised the world by skydiving on his 90th birthday. But his chief of staff says the nation's 41st president is planning a quiet 91st birthday with family Friday in Kennebunkport.

Earlier this week, the focus was on his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush, as singers Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith and Reba McEntire serenaded her Monday on her 90th birthday.

Their son former President George W. Bush is among family members who remain in town, and they'll be celebrating again Friday. Another son former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is traveling in Europe before returning to Florida to announce his own presidential run Monday.
