Billboard reported that Maddie, along with her mother, singer Jamie Lynn Spears, and step dad Jamie Watson, attended the grand opening of Planet Hollywood Disney Springs restaurant in Orlando, Florida, Monday.

Maddie was seriously injured in an ATV accident on Feb. 5, when she was underwater for about two minutes on her family's Kentwood, Louisiana, property. Five days later, she left the hospital and returned home.

"We are truly blessed," Jamie Lynn Spears said at the time of her daughter's hospital release.

The entire group wore matching T-shirts, each with their name across them.
