The Fourth of July is a celebration of America's birth and spirit of freedom. This year, stars took the opportunity to show their patriotism and enjoy the summer sun in honor of U.S. independence.
For many celebs, the happy holiday was an opportunity to spend some quality time with their adorable children.
Rob Kardashian took to Instagram to share a few pics of his 7-month-old daughter, Dream, enjoying some father-daughter time in the pool.

Christina Aguilera posed with her fiancé, Matthew Rutler, and her two kids, 9-year-old Max and 2-year-old Summer, on a dock overlooking a large lake. The happy family rocked red, white and blue ensembles while the singer draped herself in an American flag.
In fact, a lot of celebs decided to don the traditional colors of the American flag in their celebratory shots, including Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell, who proudly displayed their Fourth of July "jammies."
Sofia Vergara and Eva Longoria were among a number of stars who turned up the patriotism at their holiday barbeques with some red, white and blue pride.
The Fourth is also a great chance for stars to show off their bikini bods -- an opportunity that Ashley Tisdale and Nicole Scherzinger made sure not to pass up.
