My family and I visited the Tennessee Aquarium on the 4th of July this year. It was a very rainy and fun day! We of course dressed in red, white, and blue. My mother and mother-in-law came along with us. We had quite the crew! Yes, it was very rainy, dreary, and foggy. My hair sure wasn’t cooperating! Anyhow, I wanted to share my girl’s clothing choices for the day. I took the following photos in the Butterfly Garden area of Ocean Journey. The Tennessee Aquarium is a great place to visit as a family.
Blue Sequined Shirt- Ross
Dark Blue Undershirt- Walmart
Denim Skirt- Goodwill
Red Ruffled Shirt- Ross
White Undershirt- Walmart
Denim Skirt- Cato
An outfit I made for her last year.
I ran out of time, and didn’t make her a 4th of July outfit this year.
The skirt still hit her knees so we went with it!
My youngest daughter wore:
Patriotic Flag Dress- Kohl’s Clearance Section. I picked this up last summer.
White Undershirt- Carters
I don’t believe that a single piece of clothing pictured was over $10. Several of the pieces of clothing were under $5. Yay!
In closing, I would love to share a few 4th of July posts with you! Born Again on the Fourth of July from John Piper’s Desiring God blog is a must read. We need to remember that “in Jesus, we have one final allegiance, and thus in this world we will always be, in some real sense, pilgrims, strangers and aliens, sojourners and exiles (1 Peter 2:11).”
Secondly, this is a wonderful post from Graced Simplicity titled, true freedom = knowing Jesus Christ!
How did you celebrate the 4th of July?
