Katherine Heigl on Vacation with Family in Mexico

Katherine Heigl and her growing family don't seem to take vacations often — but when they do, they go big.

The Grey’s Anatomy actress has been showing off her family’s epic snow-to-sunshine trip from Utah to the sandy shores of Mexico this week on her Instagram account.

“First family vacation in two am I grateful to be here,” she captioned an Instagram slideshow where she shared photos of her family time in Utah followed by the epic ocean views in Mexico. The images, People noted, show each member of her brood including Naleigh, 9, Adalaide, 5, and Joshua Jr., 1, alongside her 15-year-old niece, Madison, who lives with Heigl full-time.

In a second set of images, Heigl shared even more beautiful snapshots of her family, including Joshua Jr. splashing his adorable baby toes in the ocean and her daughters smiling brightly under the warm Mexican sun. Meanwhile, Heigl can be seen jumping for joy in a bright red bikini.

“#thoseheavenlydays are plentiful in this extraordinarily beautiful, peaceful serene spot in Mexico. I may never leave…” she captioned the photos.

And in a third and final Instagram post from her trip Heigl shared photos of what appear to be her extended group of travel buddies.

Of course, Heigl wasn’t the only one showing off the family fun on social media. Her husband, singer Josh Kelly, also shared a bit of the family’s behind-the-scenes fun including their time bike riding down the coast:

...and several images of his adorable family and “hot mama” wife.
