Mariska Hargitay just visited the most amazing scenery with her family. 

How to Watch

Watch Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Thursdays on NBC and next day on Peacock.

On July 12, the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star took to her official Instagram page to share some gorgeous photos of herself exploring nature with her loved ones at the lovely Kew Gardens in London's famous Royal Botanic Gardens

The first snapshot showed her grinning at the camera with her husband, Peter Hermann, before we catch a glimpse of her roaming in the bright green grass under some billowy trees.

She then zoomed her camera onto some massive-looking lily-pads and then took another closeup of an exotic purple flower. Then, we see some cute little ducks swimming around in a lake. Hargitay then strolled down the path while holding hands with two of her children.

Hargitay's having a great summer. This June, she took a romantic vacation with her husband to Italy. She documented the event via her official Instagram page, where she shared a lovely snapshot of herself standing next to Hermann in a building with gorgeous architecture while the sun beamed directly on them. 

"Ciao💗🇮🇹," she captioned the post. 

That same trip, she also posted a series of pictures of her and Hermann relaxing together on a boat, while they shared some smooches. "Amore🇮🇹💙💙💙 La dolce vita #summerlove #HappySummerSolstice," she captioned the post. 

Hargitay and Hermann have the sweetest relationship. In a 2018 interview with People, Hargitay opened up about their close-knit bond. 

“My husband is my North Star, and my kids are my teachers. Our family is so perfect, or at least perfect for me. Together we’re just this whole, happy, joyful, chaotic, crazy unit," she said. "I’ve never known anything that was more right. Peter and I, we're so different that it's been amazing how we complement each other. He knows everything I don't." 

"We sort of knew that we found the right one. I never thought it could be this good, and I never knew that I’d be reminded on the journey, that I’d marry the right one. That I waited and married the right one, and it’s better than I thought it was. Because sometimes you take a snapshot and you go, ‘I can’t believe this is my life," she said in another interview with People a year later.
