Talk about Red White And Cute! If you know me at all, you know my love for all things red, white, and blue runs STRONG year round. But when summer hits, it gets a little out of control. I mean I even started a link up for all things star spangled two years ago!
So when Gymboree asked if I wanted to share some of their red, white, and cute clothes for Memorial Day and this summer, it was an immediate YES from me! Make sure to read all the way to the end for a fun giveaway!
This Friday marks the official start of summer for us since it’s BTR’s last day of school! We already have a fun Memorial Day Weekend planned, including a visit to Jefferson Barracks Cemetery to see Brandon’s Grandpa, it’s a tradition we started when we had Jude and plan on continuing every year as a family.
We also plan on hanging out on in the backyard and grilling for more than a few of our meals this weekend!
Yes, those are stars and stripes shoes. I’m obsessed. I also need to remember to spray them with scotch guard before they wear them again, because I’m totally turning into my mom.
I cannot get over how adorable all these clothes are from Gymboree. I guess it helps that my models are totally into it too.
We took these photos in Collinsville at the American Legion. They have this huge helicopter that Jude loves looking at!
These jackets will be perfect for cooler evenings this summer! I’m kind of obsessed with all the brother matching happening as well.
The Legion also has this painted postal box for depositing old flags! I felt like we were channeling our inner Mason and Liz from Chasin’ Mason!!
And just when I thought we were done with all the red, white, and blue photo shoots, I drove downtown Belleville and spotted the most amazing thing ever.
Yup a GIANT American Flag hanging on the Courthouse!
The fountains were running which provided endless entertainment for these two!
I really hope they keep this flag up all summer so we can go take our Star Spangled Kids pictures in front of it.
But if they don’t, I’m pretty sure I snapped enough this week and we just *might* reuse a few of them for the link up!
Because who doesn’t love giant American Flags?
Someone is clearly turning into a ham for the camera. Probably because BTR was behind me with Ezra doing who knows what to get Jude to look at me. Whatever it was, it was totally worth it!
Anyway, I’m pretty much in LOVE with all these photos and sorry I’m not sorry I posted so many. You might want to unfollow me on Instagram because I kind of want to post all of them, because #chatbooks.
