Jenna Bush Hager and her family enjoyed a boating trip over Memorial Day weekend, before her grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush, was hospitalized for low blood pressure and fatigue.
The 36-year-old Today show correspondent took to Instagram Stories on Sunday to share a photo of herself posed on a boat with her husband, Henry Hager, their daughters Mila, five, and Poppy, two, and friends.
The family is presumably staying at the Bush family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, for the holiday weekend, and they spent yesterday afternoon on the Atlantic Ocean.

Jenna and her family appear to be staying in Maine with her grandfather George H.W., who was taken to the hospital on Sunday after experiencing low blood pressure and fatigue.
Jim McGrath, a spokesman for the former president, tweeted just after 2 p.m. on Sunday that the 93-year-old will likely remain in the hospital for a few days.

George H.W. is being treated at Southern Maine Health Care in Biddeford. A hospital spokeswoman said on Sunday that all information would be released by the Bush family.
Broken heart: This is the second time in two months George H.W. has been admitted to hospital. He was hospitalized in April the day after the funeral of his wife of 73 years, Barbara
Warm welcome: Jenna shared this photo of her grandfather arriving in Kennebunkport, writing: ‘He made it home—to Maine. Can’t wait to get up there to see you, Gamps’
This is the second time in two months that he has been admitted to hospital.
George H.W. was hospitalized the day after the funeral of his wife, Barbara Bush, and he remained in hospital for 13 days to treat an infection that had spread to his blood.
Barbara died on April 17, just days after the Bush family announced she was in failing health and had decided not to seek further medical treatment.
The former first lady had opted to focus on ‘comfort care.’ She had been battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and congestive heart problems in recent years.
George H.W. was by his wife’s side until the very end, and the two were holding hands when she passed away.
