{#StarSpangledKids // Splashpad Fun}


Is there anything cuter than seeing kids all decked out in their red, white and blue? {the answer is no!} I love that my sweet friend Liz hosts a link-up called #StarSpangledKids to showcase kiddos in their all-American best! This year she has invited a few of us bloggers to co-host and I am so excited to co-host with her!! I hope that  you'll join us either by linking up, or sharing your photos on Instagram with the hashtag #StarSpangledKids - Also, I hope you'll visit each of the awesome hosts of the link-up.

Hosts:
Liz from Ellie And Addie Stephanie from Wife Mommy Me Jess from Secrets of a Stay at Home Mom Whitney from Work It Mommy Julie from The Girl in the Red Shoes Jen from And Hattie Makes Three Courtney from A + Life Meghan from The Adventure Starts Here Sarah from Seeing All Sides Crystal from Hall Around Texas Beth from Our Pretty Little Girls Liz from Chasin' Mason


I have slowly been adding all the red, white and blue things to Mason's closet. I love those colors on him! And I am kind of obsessed with all things patriotic right now. Memorial Day and The 4th of July are two of my favorite holidays. 

As Mason gets older he is more difficult when it comes to taking pictures. I kind of have to be sneaky! For the first set of pictures I just dressed him and gave him a popsicle. For the second set we loaded up to go to a tiny splashpad at a nearby church and I just so happened to deck him out in stars and stripes. He doesn't mind me taking pictures so long as he has something to do.

Also, I shared a Fourth of July Scavenger Hunt on the blog today! Post here.

  16. Noah had a flag swim suit last year and this is making me wish I got the bigger size for him this year! And looks like you had the splash pad all to yourself... Lucky! And we are entering the stage where Noah doesn't love posing for photos. I'm gonna have to change up my strategy soon!
