It's great to celebrate the holidays with friends and family, but when Taylor Swift went home to Rhode Island for July 4, she brought her whole "tour family" with her – 18 of them!
Luckily Taylor's new $17 million mansion has plenty of room for guests – seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
Taylor posted a bunch of pics on her blog of her and her crew having a blast as they blew off steam in between tour dates.
"Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays of the year," Taylor wrote. "This time around, my touring family joined me at the beach."
In the pics, Taylor can be seen playing pool and volleyball, applying face and body paint to her dancers, taking part in an "epic treasure hunt that involved lost of running, screaming, searching, and singing the national anthem" and chilling out after a busy day on large comfy sofas.
Taylor was also joined by her real-life family, and posted a cute pic with her dad.
The "22" singer also treated her house guests to a delicious frozen treat at the Drawbridge Ice Cream store in Mystic, Conn., on July 3. It must be a favorite of hers, cause she also took bestie Selena Gomez there last month.
