Family fun! Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Melissa and Joe Gorga hit Saint Thomas this week for an island vacation with all three of their kids — and a few feathered friends.

The mother of Antonia, 8, Gino, 6, and Joey, 4, shared photos via Instagram of her fun trip with her loved ones. Melissa, 35, first posted a shot of her tan legs sunning on the beach in the Virgin Islands destination. 

Happy Sunday?? #stjohns #stthomas

"Happy Sunday," she wrote on Jan. 25. She went on to offer another peek into her relaxing day, sharing a photo from a vantage point overlooking foliage, cabanas, and a blue ocean. 

Lunch time View. What an Absolute gorgeous island. #stthomas

"Lunch time View," she captioned the stunning picture. "What an Absolute gorgeous island. #stthomas."

During the trip, Melissa and Joe, also 35, took the warm weather as an opportunity to show off their ripped bodies. The reality star posted an Instagram shot of herself in a skimpy coral bikini, which displayed her toned abs and fit figure. Her husband flexed his arms in a tight T-shirt paired with light green Ralph Lauren swim trunks.

"Playing around on the beach @joeygorga," she captioned the shot with her love.

The couple's children seemed to be loving the vacation just as much as they were. Melissa posted a photo of two of her kids in an infinity pool with sunrays on the water and wrote, "Antonia & Joey enjoying paradise."

The kids later had an exciting experience when they got up close and personal with island birds. The family of five took a photo together as various birds of a feather reclined in their arms and perched on their shoulders. 

More Gorga's??!! They are adorable…

While Joe is unwinding in the sun with his wife, his sister Teresa Giudice is in a far less pleasant place. The former RHONJ personality is in her fourth week at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn.

Sources told Us Weekly that Giudice, 42, is spending her days behind bars getting into shape. "Every night she hits the gym and has been asking friends to send her workout videos," an insider spilled.
