We did not get to celebrate Independence Day with Caleb on the 4th, so we did it on the 9th. He had fun shooting different fireworks with us.
And Zoe likes the fireworks too. In fact, the other two dogs loved it so much we feared they would run up to the fireworks and get hurt. So they had to go back into the house for safety reasons. Otherwise they would have had to wear safety goggles and hearing protections.
Grandpa and Allie,but she did not want grandpa and was rearing her head backwards trying to get out of his grasp. Guess who she wanted? Yep, ME, GRANDMA!!! (oh I love it!)
Shooting off parachutes in the cul-de-sac with Zoe watching carefully.
And my first attempt at night fireworks. Ok, not the best, but not bad considering how long it took for me to just get this shot and two others. This was the best of the three. Yes, I need more practice.
Yes, the rabid dog look. You must add whip cream to the strawberries and if you have the kind that come out of the can, then you MUST FILL the mouth up first and taste it. You just have to.
Of course when you try to close your mouth or laugh, the whip cream comes out. Good catch Caleb! Now you can still eat it.
And guess who did NOT want to be left out of the fun. I bet her mother would die knowing I gave her a squirt of whip cream right in the mouth. Well, most of it went in the mouth. She loved it and laughed. I might have created a little monster with this!
I could not get one single good shot of her. I tried, and tried, but nope. She would not hold still long enough for me to hardly snap a shot off.
Just one of her funny faces. She will wrinkle her nose up at me and snort. I laugh at her, she just makes me so happy to have her around. I need to feel the joy and she certainly gives it to me.
This is how she crawls. No knees on the ground. On her hands and feet. She will stand right up out in the middle of the floor. I thought that came after they start walking. I thought they pulled up to the sofa and then walked around it or the coffee table and then walked with standing up in the middle of the floor coming last. She will be anywhere and will just stand up and stand there. Once in a while she might think about moving her little feet, but then she just sits down. I bet it won't be long and this little stinker will be walking. I don't want her to, but I just have a feeling.
Oh,don't let that innocent look fool you for one minute. She is sweet, loud, demanding, loving, and a wonderful grand daughter that I don't have much time with. I want every minute with her and Caleb I can get. It will be gone soon enough and I just don't want it to happen. Maybe I will have another one by the time they leave???? Beth??? TJ???? Who's next?
