From Madelon: Kit and Ruthie want to tell everyone that they love America with all of their hearts, as their artwork proclaims. Kit is wearing a denim dress with a flag- inspired collar. This was purchased at the Skimmer celebration. Ruthie wears a dress suitable for her era. We happened upon this outfit at a local independent bookstore.

Julie is definitely ready for a 4th of July parade! This is another one of Madelon’s photos.

Hanna’s dolls have had a fantastic July 4th parade!

Jackie sent in Ruthie and Julie celebrating the fourth of July inside since it’s over a hundred degrees outside today.

Another great collage from Hanna.

Agisthebest (Delaney) says, “I made this parade for my American Girls. Julie is the cheerleader, Molly and Emily are the dancers, Lanie is the driver, McKenna ( I got her last Thursday when I went to the AG store in Dallas) is the guitarist, and Riley (MyAG#13) is playing her flute. I had a lot of fun doing this. Happy 4th of July everyone!”

Emily photographed Ellowynne in the parade. Dressed like a true patriot, Ellowyne dons red, white and blue, carries a mini George Washington puppet and a pinwheel.

This is Lindsey’s doll Alexis who is soaking up the sun in a homemade sundress that she made out of old jeggings ! Alexis can not wait for her family’s 4th of July Barbecue.

Peyton’s dolls Molly, Lanie, and Samantha decided to walk in a parade for the Fourth of July. Lanie and Samantha wanted to hold the banner while Molly stood on the parade float to wave to the crowd and hold the American flag to honor America’s independence.
