Since photography is Beyonce's favorite way to let fans in on her life, she shared some new pictures of herself and daughter Blue Ivy frolicking at the beach. It's a long, hot summer, so Bey and Blue got their beach on. Yeah, try saying that five times in a row and fast.

Notice that Beyonce does not let us see too too much of her little girl's face. So she is still protecting her privacy.

Splish splash.

Bey's fifth album may be a matter of mystery and the source of many questions, but there is one thing we are sure of: She lurves being a mom to Blue. And we love the crown of flowers in her hair.
