As The World Turns star Kelley Menighan Hensley recently enjoyed a fun family vacation in Naples, Fla., but the trip got off to a rocky start. “I made the reservation, and when I printed out the itinerary I read the arrival instead of the departure,” she explains to Soap Opera Weekly. “We’re driving to the airport and I looked at what I’d printed and I go [to husband and co-star Jon Hensley], ‘Before I tell you, do not kill me.'”

“Jon is like, ‘What did you do?’ And then I immediately just burst into tears because I felt so bad. My kids had their inner tubes basically around their waists at this point. So we got to the airport and there were no flights. We drove home to New Jersey and took a later flight. My kids were like, ‘It’s okay mom.'”

Fortunately, once the family of five — which includes children Sophie May, 10, Spencer James, 7, and Georgia ‘Gigi’ Grace, 2 — reached their final destination a good time was had by all. “Playing in the ocean with my two older ones was memorable,” Kelley says. “You’re laughing so hard, getting pummeled by waves.”

“For them to see you having so much fun and you seeing them having so much fun, that’s the best. [Also], it was the first time that the baby has been old enough to know she wants to go in the pool and to the beach — and she was completely fearless.”
