Jessica Simpson is living life to the fullest — and her family is right there with her.

The 42-year-old took to Instagram on Saturday to post a series of photos with her family enjoying "the lake life" while visiting her home state of Texas. In the shots, the singer and actress stunned while wearing a bright red bikini, large white framed sunglasses and several gold bracelets. The "Dukes of Hazzard" star loosely tied her hair back with a red and white headband.

Simpson and her husband, Eric Johnson, took their three children — Birdie Mae, Ace Knute and Maxwell Drew — to Lake Austin for the week of July 4, as the Los Angeles-based family reunited with their loved ones.

Fans filled the comments section of the "Blonde Ambition" star's post with love, noting her and her family's beauty.

"Looks like a happy life, Jessica. So fun!" one fan chimed in.

"Beautiful family, queen," another wrote.

"Happy to see you happy, beautiful!" said one person.

"I've always wanted to go there! You have a beautiful family!" someone replied.

"You are so beautiful! And your family too!" added another.

"You're a beautiful mama. You're a natural beauty," a fan commented.

In a post she made on Friday, the "With You" and "I Think I'm In Love With You" singer shared how her and her husband let their children choose where they went on vacation, and how the family enjoyed their summer trip back home.

"Our family had the best 4th of July week on Lake Austin," Simpson wrote in her caption. "We asked the kids where they wanted to go for their summer trip and out of everywhere, they chose Texas to be with their cousins. It was a sentimental and nostalgic blast of a week. Settled into summer feeling good."

Fans also poured their love into the comments section of that post.

"Jessica, you have to tell us your secrets to staying in such great shape!" one person shared.

"So glad you guys had fun!!! Love you, Jess," another added.

"Gotta love Texas!! Glad you had a great time!" replied one fan.

"That's awesome," another commented. "It feels good spending time with family! Glad you all had fun!"
