While he'll spend the weekend close to home, supporters sang "Happy Birthday" to the commander-in-chief during a campaign stop in Orlando Thursday.

"It's true that I'm going to be, what am I going to be. I'm going to be 51 on Saturday," Obama said. "But Michelle says I look 50, so that's not bad."

Obama will spend the weekend at Camp David. He will hold a birthday themed fundraiser at his family home in Chicago on August 12.
