Happy 4th of July! We’ll be celebrating later with friends, a grill, a phone call to grampa (it’s his birthday too!), a pool and a bunch of fireworks. But a few days ago we upped our game with a new ritual: Patriotic Beads. Violet has been asking for a ponytail with beads for a few weeks, so it seemed like as good a time as any to get our red-white-and-blue on.
For a change of pace, we alternated cornrows and flat twists. It just added a bit of interest. The front hairline was just tinier cornrows and flat twists, worked into the main braids/twists in a kind of cool pattern that somehow I managed NOT to photograph. My apologies.
This whole little photo shoot (even the part where Daniel joined the fun!) lasted for about 120 seconds total since it was 120 degrees out. Hence the “pool” part of our celebration plan later.
Happy 4th, everyone!
