Kate Hudson definitely won a cool mom award from her son with this epic family trip. The Mother's Day star shared a snap on Instagram Friday, which showed her flashing a smile in sunnies as she spent some quality time with 12-year-old Ryder in Niagara Falls recently.

"#fbf Niagara Falls with my big guy," she captioned the photo. "A huge thank you to everyone who showed us around! #MaidOfTheMist." In the snap, Ryder smiles wide as they stand on a boat with a picturesque view of the Falls in the background.

While Hudson didn't mention when they took the trip, it's clear she's thrilled summer is finally here. In a photo she posted to Instagram Thursday, the actress can be seen hanging out and sipping from a mug by a swimming pool with a friend, showing off her toned tummy in a bandeau bathing suit top, a multicolored, striped skirt and wedges. "#tbt to three days ago on the first day of summer @angigreene #doublefisted #CoffeeWhiteWineSpritzer #SummerSolstice #LoveSummerTime," she captioned the snap.
