Former President George H.W. Bush returned to his home state of Texas on Friday after residing in Maine for what his spokesman called “a very special summer.”
“After a very special summer in Maine surrounded by his big, loving family, the 41st President today arrived back home in Houston and is preparing to launch Operation Shock and Awe @Astros fortified in the near future by some proper #TexMex,” spokesman Jim McGrath tweeted.
Bush, 94, returned about a week after he was present the nuptials of his granddaughter.
Former first daughter Barbara Bush married Craig Louis Coyne on Sunday in a private ceremony at Walker’s Point in Kennebunkport, Maine, in front of family, according to a statement from the office of her father, former President George W. Bush.
The pair got engaged on Aug. 25 and married five weeks later to make sure her grandfather could be in attendance, she said in an interview with People magazine.
“We actually would have gotten married the next week if we could have,” told the outlet.
