Gwen Stefani is taking a break from her work for a little (sandy) play.
On vacation in Palm Beach, Fla., the singer, 42 – who’s gearing up to release her first No Doubt album following the band’s 11-year hiatus – clocked in quality time with her family on the shore.
The family, who are in the area for a few days prior to Rossdale’s band Bush’s next show, also stopped by a science museum.
“The kids had so much fun and the family was gracious and lovely,” a rep for the South Florida Science Museum tells PEOPLE. “They spent all afternoon with us.”
