Star Spangled Kids- Fourth of July

Happy Fri-Yay friends!! We are headed to the beach sometime today. I can't wait to get my toes in the sand and watch my boys play!

There is a fun link-up going around where we show cute pictures of our kids in their Fourth of July best! So I figured since I love a matching outfit {themed even better!} I'd get my kids in their cutest getup and snap some photos. Of course they would smile and be happy and I would get the perfect shot, right? W.R.O.N.G. What is it about kids and as soon as you pull out the camera and want them to sit and smile they do the complete opposite? I did everything short of giving my kid $100 to get a picture. I mean, bribery is acceptable when trying to get a photo, right? #noshameinmygame

So here we go, this is the best of the worst, which in reality is real life!

This was about as the best one I got. At least one is smiling! 

 Graham is clearly more interested in what his brother is doing than looking at me 

 I thought these sunglasses would be a hit..they were for about .5 seconds 

 This is when it started going south...

 And Graham wants the sucker...

 They are clearly both over it at this point

And one more because this was actually a sweet picture although from Memorial Day I had to post. I can't believe how much Graham has grown in over a month!

I hope you all have a fabulous Fourth of July and get to do something fun to celebrate our country!
