While it seems most of Hollywood was off glamming it up for the Video Music Awards in N.Y.C. this weekend, Katie Holmes kept things casual while enjoying an intimate beachside vacation with her family.

The 37-year-old Dawson's Creek alum posted a series of awe-inspiring Instagram photos throughout the weekend, proving to her 500,000 Instagram followers that she is living her very best (and oh-so-relaxing) life.

Holmes's first post from her #familytime series captured the actress landing a cartwheel in slow-motion, set to the tune of Rihanna's hit single "Work." Looks like Holmes was feeling some post-Olymics gymnastics inspo—and honestly, that cartwheel is pretty impressive.

Happy Weekend! #lastdaysofsummer #familytime #beach #joy #summertime #work #rihanna #alterna

Holmes went on to post several more moody ‘grams of her sun-soaked day/week/life.

But the crème de la crème is certainly Holmes’ most recent photo, which shows the actress napping on the beach, buried up to her neck in sand. The sleepy smile on her face speaks volumes of her relaxing getaway.
