Seeing Victoria Beckham crack a smile is about as rare as us Brits getting a decent summer but she managed to do just that this weekend on a day out with her children.

Posh - looking suitably glam in oversized shades and a LBD - posted this pic of her smiling as she posed with a dolphin at an aquatic park in California.

She also got a chance to swim with the animals, tweeting: "Such a special day with the children swimming with dolphins!!! They are so beautiful!!!! x vb"
