She and former President George H.W. Bush are being joined by family members including their son, former President George W. Bush, to help her celebrate on Wednesday.

The Bushes have a summer home in Kennebunkport, on the Maine coast.

A family spokeswoman says it will be a quiet family event.

That's in contrast to a year ago when Mrs. Bush's gala 90th birthday celebration featured special guests Amy Grant, Reba McEntire and Michael W. Smith.

Her husband, the nation's 41st president, also is celebrating a birthday this week. George H.W. Bush turns 92 on Sunday.
