Back from our Trip

Well, hello there everyone!!

It's been a while since we last updated you on our weekly lifestyle, but that's only because we've been vacationing, and now Mom brought cousin Crystal over from Texas so we can show her around, so we've all been pretty busy enteraining her. She's not much of a dog person, so we're still working our charm on her. I think we made a breakthrough this week when she started playing with Ebony. Anyhow, I wanted to share some pictures from our very first trip. The picture above is the picture of me all ready and groomed for our big trip to Texas. Mom says this is one of her favorite pictures of me.

This is a picture of Ebony as we were about to embark on our journey to Texas. As you can see, she doesn't look too excited. Mom and Dad laughed because Ebony plopped right onto her seat and fell asleep in no time. I think I was more excited than she was.

Every once and a while I had to check on Ebony because she was always sleeping. I wanted someone to be excited with me, but she didn't seem to like being confined in the back seat so long, so Mom and I were excited together. Ebony and I still did really good on the drive, though. Neither one of us got sick. Whoohoo! I think we're finally getting used to Dad's driving. Shhh...don't tell him I said that.

Then every once and I while Mom would take me off the seat belt so Ebony and I could take a nap together. She knows how much I love to cuddle with her. :O)

Here is a picture of me guarding Dad's truck again while Mom and Dad stop to fill up at a gas station. I'm an expert at this. ;o)

Oh, and the exciting part of our trip--the day I reunited with my Mommy Lilly. Here is my favorite picture of her and Ebony together. These are the loves of my life. This was the day that we had finally had my Mommy's blessing, since we had to make sure I got her approval first, you know. ;O)

Now, here is Ebony wearing the bathing suit that mom bought her. Can you tell how small it was? Mom was surprised how much both of us had grown so fast. She thought we were both still really small. Well, not anymore!

Here is the one that finally fit her. Very pretty, huh? I thinks so. This is Ebony at our grandma's house. We really liked her house. We learned how to slide on the tile really fast. Oh, did I mention we broke one of grandma's favorite vases doing it? Well, she was very nice to us, and didn't get mad. I like her. Ebony really liked our Auntie Lorie. She didn't like to take pictures so we didn't get to take one with her, but for some reason Ebony really loved to play with her.

Here I am with my beach shirt at grandma's house. Don't I look handsome?

And then came the backpacks. At this point, we're really tired of modeling. Can you tell?

This is Mom and Dad's favorite picture of us. We look like we're on our honeymoon. :O)
Along the way we made some new friends. Here are some of our new friends:

This is Penny. Ebony was too playful so she kept running away from us, but we liked her very much.

This is Muneca (Spanish for doll). She lives at our other grandma's house. Muneca's tounge is so long that it doesn't fit in her mouth. She looks so cute.

Here we are just chilling and relaxing--or chillaxing. Ahhh, what a wonderful life it was....:O)

Then we finally got to go to South Padre Island. Here we are wearing our beach attire and ready to swim. Mom was worried about how much fun we were having. If we didn't have our leashes on, we'd probably take off running into the water. Ebony and I both loved the beach!

This is me getting even more sand in my hair. I loved it!

Then both Ebony and I decided to help Marissa and Mariah, our cousins, build their sandcastle. Although, for some reason they never got very far. We kept, digging though. That's what we do best!

Well, as you can see, we had a blast on our trip. Mom is taking Crystal to Alrington Cemetary today, so we have to get going. Hasta luego!!
Have a great week everyone!!
Obie & Ebony

Mommy says I'm lucky I'm so good looking because I make even Daddy's not-so-professional grooming look cute.
