Welcome to the Second Annual Star Spangled Kids link up!
I’m so excited for this link up and can’t wait to share all my photos with you. I may have gone a bit crazy (again) and took way too many photos, but we were having so much fun running around in the backyard and Jude totally cooperated!
I did what I did last year and just let Jude run around our yard with some flags. And he totally ate it up! We also played on the swingset and watered some flowers while we were out there.
I kept giving Jude directions like “run to the tree” or “run to mama” and he actually listened! Which was a total first. And probably a last as well.
Don’t worry, Ezra was there too! It was great weather that evening so we put him in the bouncer on the deck! And he’s wearing the onsie I made Jude for his First Fourth of July.
And of course some brotherly love which absolutely melts my heart!
I love how these photos are so similar to last year’s photos, but Jude looks sooooo much bigger to me!
He can finally climb up onto that swing himself and he gets so proud of himself! He of course also then bosses me to sit with him!
And Ezra is just content bouncing on the deck, best baby ever! I think he’s going to end up with the same blue eyes as Jude! Not so sure on the hair yet though.
Are you sick of my flag pictures yet? Too bad, can’t stop, won’t stop!
Luckily Jude has the same enthusiasm for the Fourth of July as I do! Oh and BTR played along and grilled us burgers and drank some ‘Merica beer!
Of course then Jude heard an airplane and we had to stop everything we were doing to find it!
I’m pretty much obsessed with this dude, he’s the best!
Here’s to making posicles, eating s’mores, grilling burgers, and watching fireworks this weekend! I hope you all get to do the same with your family!
And a HUGE thank you to all my co-hosts for this link up, I couldn’t have done it without them! Make sure to head to all of their blogs and see what they are doing to celebrate!
