For most of us Easter means spring, but Katie Holmes and her daughter Suri decided to jump right into summer with a vacation on the beach in Florida!

Actress Holmes took Suri (who turned 11 on April 18) down to Marco Island Resort to meet up with her extended family from Ohio for a weeklong visit, according to E! News. And she very kindly shared photos with us on her Instagram on Tuesday of the Easter week gathering, including mom-daughter hugs:
