Last week, the "Fixer Upper" star took to Instagram to share photos from her family's getaway in East Texas.

The 41-year-old first shared an idyllic photo of Duke kayaking on the river, which was taken by Emmie Kay. In the accompanying caption, Joanna explained that the trip her husband's idea as she wrote:

"Chip surprised us and took us on a little weekend getaway to East Texas to get lost and find random (and beautiful) adventures along the way."


Another photo saw the youngest of the Gaines' children, Crew, staring off into the sunset while the last image was a back view of their daughter Emmie.

It is no surprise that the kids were able to have such a swell time during the short vacation as CheatSheet reports that Joanna and Chip have instilled the love of nature in them.


The publication explains that the reality couple goes as far as decorating their home with plants in order to give it a natural feel that the kids can connect to.

Luckily, the love for nature isn't the only thing the kids picked up from their famous parents as they help their parents out when it comes to flipping and fixing houses.


While the girls run to the antique shop to pick designs and pieces for the house, the boys help around the house.

Apart from choosing decoration pieces, cooking is something the kids are familiar with. PEOPLE recalls that in November 2019, Emmie and Crew teamed up in the kitchen to whip up a batch of cookies from their unique recipe.


Joanna, as expected, took to her Instagram to a photo of the kids rolling out the dough and described it as "one of my favorite cookies I've ever tasted!"

As revealed by PopSugar, Joanna and Chip are proud parents of lovely children. The oldest Gaines child is Drake, 17, and Ella, 13, follows him. Duke, 12, and the darling Emmie Kay, 10, comes next, after which is Crew, 1,

While it might seem as though the Gaines have their hands full, TODAY notes that Joanna and Chip are open to the idea of expanding their home.
