Star Spangled Kids

Welcome to the Third Annual Star Spangled Kids link up!

Get ready for a pretty picture heavy post, because my love for all things red, white, and blue is fierce!

We opted for a new scene this year (we just did pictures in our back yard last year and the year before). And I’m pretty excited for how it turned out this year!

I bought the background flag at Michael’s a few weeks ago (yay 50% coupons!) and we stole borrowed this wagon from my mom’s house.

Then we loaded everything up and headed to BTR’s mom’s house because she has this awesome fence in her backyard!

Luckily the weather was just a bit overcast (because I do NOT know how to shoot in the sun at all) and the boys were in good moods! Okay maybe there were some candy bribes involved. I’ll never tell. :)

I think I lucked out with not only an Instagram husband (love you BTR) but also some Instagram kids. That’s a thing, right? :)

And this one. OMG he knows when to pose and it kills me. Plus look at those curls. I die.

The big one isn’t so bad either! ;)

However it’s almost impossible for both of them to look AND smile at the same time. So I’ll take what I can get when I can!

Then BTR thought it would be fun to get this old ladder out for a few shots. Which absolutely terrified me. But no one broke an arm so, hey that’s cool!

Ezra was a little to eager to climb up that ladder on his own. Basically he wants to do anything Jude is doing. It’s adorable. And as of now Jude is tolerating it! Ask me again in a few weeks.

I’m so excited for another Fourth of July with these two. It really is my favorite holiday. I have so many awesome memories with BTR and I love making new ones as a family of four!

    That backdrop with the flag and red wagon?? I might have to copy you if I can get my act together! Phenomenal photos :)

  • Those curls. I die too! Love it, Lady!

    • The curls kill me! They probably need to be trimmed but I’m not ready for that!

  • You have the best props!! Love the wagon and the ladder, so sweet.

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    Red, white, and blue is seriously MY FAVORITE!! My kids have SO much of it hanging in their closet. This is truly my all time favorite IG link up.
    Your kiddos. Their threads. The flag. The wagon. The LADDER. Oh my gosh. It all turned out SO good! (And, I’m with you, direct sunlight has me running inside like a vampire!)

    • I think I could have the boys live in red, white, and blue year round, it’s my absolute favorite! I hope this link up never dies because it’s legit my favorite every year! Thanks for being a part of it!!!! :)
