Welcome to the great outdoors, Taylor Swift!

As the "Wildest Dreams" singer continues her 1989 World Tour—it's your turn Australia—the blond beauty managed to sneak in some family time over the Thanksgiving holiday.

In several photos posted on Taylor's Instagram, fans learned that New Zealand was the lucky destination for the Swift family as they took some time to enjoy the fresh air.

"Swift family road trip!" she wrote on social media. "South Island, NZ."

Taylor later added a video that featured her brother Austin Swift and their dad playing by the river.

While it may look picture-perfect, there was one serious problem the "Shake It Off" singer faced when throwing stones into the water. What is that buzz we're hearing?! It's annoying flying insects, of course.

"There's a lot of bugs here," she joked when swatting a pesky creature away from her face in a Ann Taylor turtleneck sweater. Stay away from the mouth, flies. She needs that for her singing voice.

Before Christmas arrives next month, Taylor has much to look forward to. In addition to performing more sold-out concerts—where she will likely make the days of several fans—the singer will also be turning 26 on Dec. 13.

Reports are already swirling that her squad including Selena Gomez and Karlie Kloss are coming together for a star-studded birthday party in the weeks ahead.

Swifties, we've all been warned. After all, nobody throws a party like T. Swift.
