Despite her crazy tour schedule, Queen Bey got to grab some “mom time” on the beach recently. While on tour in New Zealand, the pop sensation took to Instagram and shared this precious snap of her and Blue.

In the pic, Beyonce looks casual and gorgeous as usual in cut-off Levis shorts and a yellow print bikini top, with her long hair flowing in the ocean breezes. She holds now 21-month-old Blue Ivy in a somewhat contemplative pose, looking out at the vast sea.

The “Grown Woman” sensation is well-known for her love of the big blue, having enjoyed several high-profile yachting vacations in recent years. "I'm always happy when I'm surrounded by water,” the pop diva and wife of multi-platinum artist Jay Z said in her concert documentary Year of 4, adding, “The ocean makes me feel really small and it makes me put my whole life in perspective."

Beyonce is no doubt a bit road-weary from her travels for her world tour, which has already been extended. Although she’s been lucky enough to have her family by her side during her recent string of performances, it all won’t end until December 22 at Barclays Center in NYC.
