The mom of one celebrated her big day by engaging in a little mother-daughter bonding with her mini-me as the pair took adorable selfies together, tried out their hand at bumper bowling, and enjoyed sweet treats–and it's clear the actress was feeling all the birthday love.
The Dawson's Creek alum took to Instagram to share photos from her activity-packed weekend festivities, starting with a black-and-white shot featuring party hats, confetti, horns, and drinks to thank her fans for their celebratory messages. "Thank you for the birthday love," she wrote in the caption. "I really appreciate it!!!!!!!!"
Holmes then shared two selfies with Suri, and the twinning pair could not look more adorable as they cheesed for the camera. "Birthday vibes!" the proud mom captioned one photo. She added for the other, "Birthday vibes continued ... so grateful today."

"Love today #mothersanddaughters #friends #love," she wrote.
