Seriously, Neil Patrick Harris and his summer vacation cohort make everything look effortless.

From posing for paparazzi photos to securing lifejackets for his children, Harris looked picture perfect in St. Tropez on Friday.

The How I Met Your Mother star was joined by his longtime love David Burtka, their adorable 2-year-old twins Gideon and Harper, and Elton John’s family (David Furnish and their two sons Zachary and Elijah).

John, 66, did not make the yearly trip as the singer continues to recover from surgery. He had his appendix removed on July 31, according to Us Weekly.
