It was a family's day out in French Riviera as Neil Patrick Harris and Elton John took time from their busy schedules and headed out for a family vacation together.

Elton, along with husband David Furnish and their sons Elijah Joseph Daniel and Zachary Jackson Levon, got together with 'How I Met Your Mother's star Neil and his husband David Burtka with their twins Harper Grace and Gideon Scott in the French Riviera resort town.

Elton took to Instagram to share the image from their family vacation. “Summer magic” Elton captioned the image as the eight of them stood there beaming with happiness as they posed for the camera. 

Neil was also not far behind as he shared the same picture on his Instagram and wrote, "The loveliest of travel companions. Merci, @dbelicious & @eltonjohn & @davidfurnish & our four amazing kids for such fond memories. #families #grateful.” Through their vacation, Neil shared a couple of pictures giving fans a glimpse of what vacationing means to them. 

The actor also shared a cute snap of the family of four along with a fun-filled picture along with Harper. Neil can be seen spreading his arms with his mouth wide open while another picture shows him being at daddy alert as Harper shows off her skills. David shared the cute snap as he wrote, "Harper sharpening her circus skills. Neil looking on both impressed and cautious. He's such a sweet, caring and thoughtful papa. #grateful #lucky."

Fans were quick to comment on the pictures with many wanting to be with the stars on their vacation. "Family time is the best time. And spending time with friends who are like family makes it better," wrote one. While another fan added, "What the hell man ????? Why won’t Elton hang out with me and my family when I ask ????" Other used Neil's famous line from 'How I Met Your Mother' as a fan noted, "How awesome is this picture? Like someone once said: "It's Legen...wait for it...dary!"

However, this is not the first time that the two families have come together. When Zachary, Gideon and Harper were just babies, the pairs got together on a vacation in the same spot. At the same time, back in 2011, they all climbed aboard Sir Elton’s yacht. They all seemed to have lots of fun while making sure their children were well equipped before they sailed, as reported by People.

After dressing the three children in sun caps and life jackets, the group disembarked their yacht. They also sailed to the wooden pier at Pampelonne Beach and were welcomed by people who were enjoying their day out at the location. Elton, Neil and their families were back in the South of France the following year for yet another get-together.
