What happens in Vegas…!

Rob Lowe traveled to Las Vegas this past weekend to celebrate his son John Owen’s 21st birthday — and alcohol, cake and sparklers were involved!

To document the birthday bash, the Grinder actor took to Instagram and shared photos and videos from the group’s Sin City weekend getaway.

“Even the fountains are pumped for the @johnnylowe and the 21st #birthday bash!! #vegas,” Lowe captioned a video of the Bellagio Fountains.

Lowe, 52, also shared a photo of himself sitting next to his son in front of a chocolate birthday cake and sparkler-adorned champagne glasses. “#birthday #vegas 21 and done!!” he captioned the group photo.

To honor his son on his 21st birthday, the father of two posted a second photo of the duo standing side-by-side in similar outfits. “#father and #son #portrait 21st #Birthday #weekend #vegas,” he penned of the father-son picture.

Also in attendance for the Vegas weekend was Johnny’s friend, actor Patrick Schwarzenegger. “So thankful for my Mom, my Pops and this guy for helping organize a nice calm spa-weekend in Vegas…,” Johnny quipped in an Instagram caption, which he tagged numerous friends in.

In April 2014, the actor opened up to PEOPLE about fatherhood and raising his two happy, down-to-earth young adults.

“You have to be willing to make some sacrifices,” Lowe said. “I moved my kids out of Los Angeles, immediately. I’ve lived in Santa Barbara for 20 years almost. I’ve had my picture taken there three times.”

“Not everybody is in show business where my kids grew up,” Lowe said of raising his sons out of the spotlight, and added, “and they see that the world is so much bigger than that.”
