The Kennedy family celebrated the Fourth of July at their estate in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, where they gathered together for their annual group photo.
Kerry Kennedy, daughter of former United States Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, took to Instagram on Monday to share a snapshot of the family huddled close together and posing near the water.
‘Happy Fourth of July from our family (and friends) to yours!’ Kerry, 61, captioned the image, which was taken from up above and features at least one new face: Conor Kennedy’s model girlfriend Ava Dash.

Getting serious? The family portrait was taken by the water and featured dozens of family members, including Conor Kennedy, 26, and his girlfriend, Ava, 21
Ava shared a snapshot of a boat on the water in Hyannis Port on her Instagram Stories on Sunday, though she didn’t post any of herself with Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s son.

Conor, 26, has reportedly been dating Ava, 21, for months.
They attended an LGBTQ fundraiser last month, marking their first public outing as a couple.
RFK Jr.’s daughter Kyra Kennedy was also in town for the weekend, but her Instagram Story posts focused on nature, not her famous family.
The 26-year-old shared pictures of a buoy, the choppy waves, and the ‘baby bunnies’ she found curled up in the grass.
With so many faces in the crowd, it’s unclear if Chris Pratt, 42, and his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger, 31, made it into this year’s picture.
The actor first appeared in the annual photo in 2019 — a month after he married Katherine, whose great uncle was John F. Kennedy.
The couple welcomed their daughter Lyla Marie in August 2020.
Katherine, the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, did, however, post her own family photo on July 3.

Looking back: Katherine’s husband, actor Chris Pratt, made his debut in the family’s Fourth of July photo in 2019, a month after they got married
All smiles: Mariah Kennedy-Cuomo, the daughter of Kerry Kennedy and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, posted a photo of herself with her boyfriend Tellef Lundevall
Happy times: Other photos show her on the beach with her cousin Kathleen Shriver
Celebration: ‘A very happy fourth,’ she captioned the snapshots
‘And we are back with our regular scheduled sun protection programming (mama had hers in her hand for a second) for a #melasmafreesummer for yours truly,’ she captioned a snapshot of her and her sister Christina Schwarzenegger, 29, safely soaking up the sun with their mom.
Katherine added that she and her sister were wearing hats they found on Amazon that ‘came in major hand, despite them being a little funny looking.’
She never tagged the location, and it’s possible that it was taken in Los Angeles, where they typically spend the holiday, or somewhere else entirely.
Mariah Kennedy-Cuomo, the daughter of Kerry Kennedy and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, took a cue from her mom and shared some pictures from the celebrations.
Say cheese: Michaela Kennedy-Cuomo, 23, shared images of herself posing with Annie Gersh (left) and Natalie Barasch (right) at the family’s compound
Out: Over the weekend, Michaela declared herself to be ‘demisexual’ — a term used to define people who can only feel sexual attraction when they have an emotional bond with someone
Fun: Four days prior, she posted snaps of herself sporting a bikini top while on a boat on the Nantucket Sound, the waterway between Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket
Summer time: ‘Captain MKsea,’ she captioned the playful images
In one photo, the 26-year-old is posing in front of the water with her boyfriend Tellef Lundevall. Another shows her on the beach with her cousin Kathleen Shriver.
‘A very happy fourth,’ she captioned the snapshots.
Mariah’s twin Cara Kennedy-Cuomo wasn’t seen in any of the images, but their younger sister Michaela Kennedy-Cuomo, 23, has been posting photos and videos on Instagram while in Hyannis Port.
On Monday, she shared images of herself posing with Natalie Barasch and Annie Gersh at her family’s compound, with all three of them wearing summer dresses.
Four days prior, she posted playful snaps of herself sporting a bikini top while steering a boat on the Nantucket Sound, the waterway between Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket.
Ocean blue: Kyra Kennedy was also in town for the weekend, but her Instagram Story posts focused on nature, not her famous family
Nature: Kyra, 26, also documented a sunset and the ‘baby bunnies’ she found in the grass
Michaela also opened up about her sexuality over the weekend, a month after she came out as queer on Instagram.
During a live stream with Donato Tramuto, the former CEO of Tivity Health, she declared herself to be ‘demisexual’ — a term used to define people who can only feel sexual attraction when they have an emotional bond with someone.
‘When I was in elementary school, I feared that I was lesbian. When I was in middle school, I came out to my family and close friends as bisexual. When I was in high school, I discovered pansexuality and thought, “That’s the flag for me.” And I’ve recently learned more about demisexuality, and have believed that that identity resonates with me most,’ she explained.
Michaela noted that when she first came out as ‘queer,’ she was worried she would be seen as ‘attention-seeking,’ since it’s ‘hip or cool to not be hetero in my liberal bubble.’
Tradition: For decades, multiple generations of Kennedys have been celebrating the Fourth of July in Hyannis Port, where they enjoy boat rides and the annual parade
Red, white, and blue: Kerry was photographed driving a golf card with a ‘voting booth’ on the back in the parade
Special moment: Parade participants waved American flags as they drove by the people on the street
Neither of her parents has publicly commented on her sexuality, but Michaela shared a video of herself rollerblading towards her mother while wearing her ‘gay for you’ baseball cap just minutes before her coming out post went live last month.
For decades, multiple generations of Kennedys have been celebrating the Fourth of July in Hyannis Port, where they enjoy boat rides and the annual parade — in addition to their family portraits.
With last year’s gathering halted due to the pandemic, this July 4th was undoubtedly extra special for the family.
Michaela reposted a video of them all dancing inside a house together over the holiday weekend.
‘TFW all the cousins are allowed inside together July 4 wknd!!’ the clip was captioned.
