Though the paparazzi snapped plenty of photos of Beyonce and Jay Z’s romantic yacht getaway in Italy, the recent birthday girl decided to make some memories of her own, posting new pictures from the family vacation on her tumblr page.

The Carter clan spends most of their down time by the water, and this time they were spotted coasting around Italy’s many islands including Capri and the Aeolian Islands.

Beyonce’s photos captured every irreplaceable detail, from HOVA’s Cuban cigars to taking a dive into the water. There’s one particularly precious picture of the happy trio enjoying a “bey-utiful” sunset together. In the image, Beyonce is tightening her bathing suit top while Jay Z helps Blue Ivy crawl around her famous mom.

The “Diva” singer is known for capturing her own private moments and releasing them when she’s ready. In February, her self-directed HBO documentary Beyonce: Life Is But a Dream was released and featured the first “official” image of her now-1-year-old daughter, along with some intimate pregnancy shots.

We love that this famous family keeps most of their life underwraps. In this age where we’ve already seen most of Miley Cyrus’s naked body and all of Farrah Abraham, it’s nice to see that some celebs can still keep it classy it.

Let them upgrade ya!
