Melissa McCarthy took a break from fighting the paranormal alongside her Ghostbusters costars to enjoy some down time with her two little girls.

Over the weekend, the actress and her daughters, Georgette, 5, and Vivian, 8, spent the day together on Boston’s scenic Newbury Street, known as the city’s shopping mecca.

The trio headed into a Newbury Street favorite, the Thinking Cup coffee shop, and grabbed a bite to eat.

The stars of the all-female Ghostbusters reboot headed to Emmanuel College in the Fenway neighborhood to film on Tuesday, where McCarthy, 44, debuted her official ghost-busting suit as she strolled across the campus, which was set up to double as New York City’s Columbia University.

With several fake stone busts planted throughout the quad, the cast and crew filmed in the school’s administration building, as well as on the quad, where actress Kristen Wiig sported a stodgy suit as she hung around and filmed several walking scenes with another professor-type.

“She’s so human. She took off her heels after filming and stretched out her toes. And then someone gave her a box of Legos,” Emmanuel College alum Sarah Ribeiro, who was getting some work done in the library at the time, told PEOPLE of Wiig. “Kristen seems to be the only adult that’s socializing.”

After filming in Everett at the old Everett High School last week, the cast and crew spent the past few days working on a private sound stage in the suburb of Westwood, away from the prying eyes of superfans.

Meanwhile, McCarthy s husband, actor Ben Falcone, has also been a frequent sight around town. In addition to his recent date night with his wife at Mare Oyster Bar in the city’s Italian North End, Falcone headed to Fenway Park last week to check out a Red Sox game, sans wife and kids.
