Labor Day? More like neigh-bor day for Drew Barrymore!

Over the weekend, the actress and her daughters Frankie, 2, and Olive, 3½, spent some quality time together in the great outdoors. On their agenda? Palling up with some animals, including turtles, horses and chickens.

“#labordayvibes #backwiththeturtles,” Barrymore, 41, sporting a wide-brimmed hat, captioned a selfie with one of the huge reptiles.

The Never Been Kissed star, who has also written two books, co-founded the production company Flower Films and started her own cosmetics line, shared more photos of her adventures with Frankie and Olive, her children with ex-husband Will Kopelman.

In one shot, the family befriends a horse on the side of the road — and Barrymore was prepared.

“#labordayvibes roadside horse hang out,” she wrote. “Luckily I had carrots in my car!”

In another photo, Barrymore’s older daughter bonds with a few water animals. “Olive helping baby turtles,” the proud mom captioned the snap.

Although the pair announced their split in April and finalized their divorce in August after four years of marriage, Barrymore and Kopelman have made sure to make their children a priority.

“Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family,” they said in a statement exclusive to PEOPLE. “Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on.

“Our children are our universe, and we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority.”
