Ariel Winter has officially kicked off her Fourth of July celebrations.
On a family vacation in Maui, the Modern Family actress was spotted jet-skiing with her boyfriend, Laurent Claude Gaudette.
As she raced through the crystal-clear waters – both as driver and holding tight around Laurent's chest – 17-year-old Ariel was sunshine personified in a yellow bikini with a huge smile on her face.

Ariel Winter, the recently emancipated minor who plays brainy Alex Dunphy on Modern Family, says she plans to become a lawyer.
"I toured schools in California, and I'm going to take a tour of East Coast schools," Ariel told E! Tuesday night at the TV Academy screening of Modern Family's season finale, which airs May 20 on ABC.
The 17-year-old, who graduates next year (a year after her TV character), says she's most interested in business and law, especially since it's more stable than acting.

[BRIGHTCOVE "3972602504001" "" "" "auto"] There's nothing like a near-death experience to bring a Modern Family together.
In an exclusive clip obtained by PEOPLE, it's a typical day for the Dunphys – that is, total chaos – when the ABC hit returns from its winter hiatus on Wednesday. And that's before the family narrowly avoids a car accident.
With the kids yelling in the backseat, Phil (Ty Burrell) blasting music, Claire (Julie Bowen) arguing with Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) over the phone, and Phil hopping on a call himself, it's total mania as the family – including Manny (Rico Rodriguez) – heads to its favorite pancake place.
