Viola Davis just took her daughter to Vegas, and can you say coolest mom EVER?

It’s been a HUGE year for Viola Davis. She won her first Academy Award for the movie Fences andher TV series, How To Get Away With Murder, is one of the highest rated shows on television. Plus, she recently got her star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. Why shouldn’t Viola Davis kick back and have some fun in Vegas?

And because she seems like the coolest mom in the world, she took her five-year-old daughter, Genesis, with her. Viola’s sister joined the mother/daughter duo, too. The three hit up the Cirque du Soleil’s The Beatles: LOVE at The Mirage.

Viola snapped this photo backstage with Genesis, her sister, and LOVE star Elisa Perry.

Viola and daughter enjoyed every second of the performance, dancing and singing the whole time.

You can tell Viola was excited about the girls’ trip. She posted this photo to her Instagram before the festivities started that night. From her hotel room in the Aria, Viola was all smiles. Guess she knew she was going to have a fun night.

E! News chatted with the mother-daughter duo at the event. Both ladies were all smiles and laughs, and it was obvious they were having an incredible time. E! asked young Genesis if she wanted to follow in her mother’s professional footsteps.

She replied, "Yeah, cause she's awesome at her work."

We totally agree, Genesis. Your mom is pretty freaking awesome.
