KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine (AP) -- Former President George H.W. Bush is celebrating his 92nd birthday with family on the Maine coast.

His chief of staff says Sunday's celebration is low-key and Bush is spending the day with his wife, Barbara Bush, and other family members in Kennebunkport. His son, former president George W. Bush, is in town. The family is planning a private dinner.

Chief of Staff Jean Becker says the family patriarch is doing well after a scare last summer when he broke a bone in his neck in a fall at his home. Bush has celebrated previous birthdays by skydiving, his latest jump when he turned 90.

Bush is the oldest living former president.

A Republican, he served two terms as Ronald Reagan's vice president before being elected president in 1988.
