“NCIS: Hawai’i” star Vanessa Lachey and her family always find time to go to the beach now that they live full time on the Hawaiian islands.

The Lachey family moved out there once Vanessa started filming for “NCIS: Hawai’i,” where she plays the first female lead for the show. She hasn’t confirmed whether filming has wrapped on the show or not, but we know that the first four episodes, directed by Larry Teng, have been filmed.

We also know that Vanessa Lachey enrolled her three kids in school on the islands. Per this adorable back-to-school pic, Lachey’s oldest son, Camden, just started third grade. Six-year-old daughter Brooklyn just started first. And Phoenix, the youngest at four years old, just started pre-school.

But the wonderful thing about living in Hawai’i is that the “NCIS” star and her family can head to the beach whenever they want. Weeknights or weekends, as long as the weather’s good, they have the option.

And it looks like the family took full advantage of Sunday’s gorgeous weather to spend some time playing in the waves. On her Instagram page, the “NCIS” star posted the cutest pic of her three kids jumping off the sand at the same time. We see the Pacific Ocean behind them, as well as a stunning orange sunset. The sky and clouds look like a painting, blue and orange hues lighting up the whole background.

“Hawai’i, We Love YOU! Mahalo for loving us back,” Lachey captioned her post.

Lachey’s family really seem to have taken to the islands, and now it sounds like the islands have taken to them. Before this pic, Lachey updated us with island date nights, revelations about manapua, and horseback riding through the forests.
