Melissa Gorga celebrated Memorial Day 2014 enjoying her two favorite things: her family and the ocean! The Real Housewives of New Jersey mama spent the weekend at her Jersey Shore house with husband Joe, and her three kids, and the whole clan wrapped up the festivities with a fabulous day out on their awesome boat.

Melissa took to Instagram to share a few photos from the gorgeous day.

"Antonia & Joey are soaking up the sun :-)," she wrote, next to a picture of her little girl and younger son hanging out in their bathing suits.

Later, she posted one final shot, capturing a breathtaking sunset over the Atlantic.

"Sunset boat ride to end the weekend. Hope it was a great one for you all. Xoxo," she wrote alongside the stunning image.

We're glad that the family had a relaxing weekend before the storm hits. By storm, we mean Season 6 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, which is set to premiere on July 13, 2014. The drama always kicks up in full force when the show is airing, so we're sure Melissa and her family really appreciate their time off, especially when it's spent lounging on a boat!

The usual madness between Melissa and her sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, will be taking a back seat during Season 6, but that doesn't mean Melissa won't have her share of drama with the new cast members joining the show.

In the meantime, we hope she gets plenty of time out on her boat!
