You'll never have any idea how long I tried to capture an okay photo of the fireworks. They are hard for me to shoot! I basically had to ditch the big camera and just use the iPhone in the end.
Our tiny family took off from Austin back home to Abilene, Texas to celebrate July 4th for a long weekend--we shot our own fireworks in the country (this was my first bewildered time to attempt doing so), and during those four days with friends and family, I met a precious little being who now belongs to my older sister:
Obi is a baby black lab, and she is the epitome of playful and sweet.
From the moment I met her, I realized she was a wiggler full of energy. As you can see from above, she doesn't take herself too seriously--something we all can learn from. :)
I absolutely adore it when puppies have to grow into their oversized paws. That wobbly run never fails to make me smile big time.
Gah, I can't stop grinning. I know for a fact that the next time I see Obi (pronounced O-bee), she'll be huge. It was such a joy to see her before she grew up too quickly.
Oh, and a small language lesson for you: Obi means "heart," originated from the African Igbo language. At least, that's what Google told me, anyway.
Did you partake in the celebrations?
Hope you're having a great start to the week!
