Ahh, the beach day. It used to be so… relaxing. Not anymore! Not with kids! At least, that’s the gist of this hilarious video from The Holderness Family, a family of four who never seem to miss an opportunity to sum up our parenting struggles perfectly.

“The Beach: Pre-kids VS Post-kids” gives everyone a peek at what happens to that once-relaxing beach day when there are a couple of kiddos tagging along. As you can guess, there’s quite a difference.

The video received 290,000 views and 5,574 shares within the first couple hours of being posted. It has since been viewed more than 9 million times.

Of course, this sort of celebrity isn’t new for the Holdernesses. The viral video family—made up of former TV sports anchor Penn Holderness; his wife, Kim, a former news reporter; and their two children, Penn Charles and Lola—has been pumping out spot-on parenting parodies since 2013, when their adorable “Christmas Jammies” video skyrocketed the foursome to internet fame with more than 17 million views.
