Wardrobe Independence - The Sequel

Prior to Ava's first 4th of July holiday, her mischievous friend Lily Mae had tried convincing Ava to wear a silly outfit. For Christian's first Independence Day, Lily Mae put her cousin Lyle (pictured below) up to the same shenanigans.

At first, Christian was happy to oblige Lyle by trying on several ridiculous (albeit patriotic) headpieces...

...including this silly little number which Ava had rejected so many years ago.

Like his big sister, however, Christian was too smart to fall for Lily and Lyle's froggy tricks. So Christian cowboyed up and decided to wear this ensemble for the 4th of July instead.

Lyle's going to have to try harder if he wants to play Christian for a fool. Besides, this wasn't his first rodeo (okay, so maybe it was). Ava was dolled up for the 4th of July as well, but was not in the same good spirits has her little brother.

Sometimes it's tough to be three.

I love that you are bringing back Lily Mae. Those were some of my favorite blogs. Christian is just a natural in front of a camera. I think he has a modeling career in his future. I do love Ava's festive hair, but she looks really bugged about it!--GrannyO

I think crying pictures are so cute even if they were crying for a not so cute reason.
