It seems that the first family had a fun Fourth of July weekend as both Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. shared celebratory pictures of their family on Instagram. As the country gears up to celebrate Independence Day, Ivanka posted a video of her 5-year-old daughter Arabella on Sunday lounging and taking a nap in a hammock.

‘Summer Vibes! #mood,’ the 35-year-old first daughter said in the post.

Donald Trump Jr. too posted two photographs of his family enjoying the summer holidays. The first picture showed his 5-year-old son wearing a lime green army fatigues posing with his great-grandmother.

The photograph was captioned: "Tristan getting to spend some quality time with his Great-Grandmother today."

Trump Jr. also posted another photograph of Tristan and Spencer Trump sitting watching live music in the Catskill mountains in New York, where the family spent the weekend.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump spent the weekend in New Jersey at his Bedminster golf club.

This was his third trip to his golf club since becoming the president. No schedule had been released of his activities at the club, but in the earlier visits as well, he was not much visible, reports said.

The president's decision to spend Indepenence Day away from the nation's capital has raised some eyebrows, more so because his predecessor, Barack Obama, would throw big July 4th concerts to honor military service members and give staffers a chance to celebrate.

Last year, rapper Kendrick Lamar performed at the event; in 2012, the White House welcomed country singer Brad Paisley. For the past several years, Obama celebrated the day with much revelry, holding babies, serving barbecue and regularly leading attendees in singing “Happy Birthday” to his daughter Malia , who, coincidentally, was born July 4.

This year, celebrations will be toned down. On July 4, the White House will invite armed service members and their families for a picnic on the South lawn, Stephanie Grisham, the first lady's director of communications and special assistant to the president, confirmed in an e-mail to Vanity Fair. In the evening, White House staff and their families will be invited to watch the fireworks.

These activities would take place after Trump returns from New Jersey on Monday.

Throughout history, presidents have celebrated Independence Day in their own ways. Founding fathers Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Monroe all died on July 4, and in 1850 Zachary Taylor ate cherries and drank milk at a July Fourth event which eventually made him sick and led to his death.

The recent years have seen Independence Days being celebrated in much better ways. In the 1950s, Dwight D. Eisenhower, like Donald Trump, played golf on the holiday. Richard Nixon oversaw the certification of the 26th Amendment on the day after July 4, 1971, in the White House. And in 1982, Ronald Reagan watched as the space shuttle Columbia successfully landed in California.
