It’s hard to believe a year has passed and Beyoncé’s twins Sir and Rumi Carter turned 1 last month. It’s even harder to believe that the Queen Bey shared a picture of them, as glimpses of the babies have been few and far between on social media.

In the year since Beyoncé first shared a picture of her newborn twins with followers, the new babies have been kept under wraps by their mama, who very carefully curates her online presence—which is why it was a big surprise to the Beyhive to see a new picture of Sir and Rumi posted to her website.

The photo was part of a collection of photographs of the family from the couple’s recent On The Run European tour, which, from the looks of the photos turned into a family vacation. There are also several shots of big sis Blue Ivy and the happy family taking in the sights and relaxing abroad.

Although no pics of the twins have appeared on Beyoncé’s Instagram feed since the meme-inspiring birth announcement, proud grandma Tina Lawson recently shared an adorable snapshot on her own page.
