Happy “Fourth of July” … from Beyonce, Solange and the rest of the Knowles Beyince clan!

Solange posted some pictures to her Twitter page today of her, along with her superstar sister Beyonce, their cousin Angie Beyince, their mother Tina Knowles, music video director Melina Matsoukas and some other women all hanging out on Independence Day.

The ladies reportedly flew to Houston right after Sunday night’s BET Awards in Los Angeles, and have been doing some sightseeing in their hometown. One of the places they visited was the famous Menil Collection Museum, where they took a private tour and admired Yves Klein’s blue paintings.

Beyonce also told Menil curator Tony Kamps that she is about to start recording her new album any day now.
