dreamy, henry, NW Portland, weekend, wine

The 4th!

This was Henry’s first Fourth of July. We didn’t know how he would take it, so we didn’t want to leave him alone in the apartment. We enjoyed the toasty (85+ degree!) weather and barbecued with family during the day. Later, Corey, Henry and I walked down to north waterfront and watched a beautiful sunset, a few fireworks and even enjoyed a sweet little glass of wine. Poor Henry was a bit scared and spent most of the time hiding between Corey’s legs, so we called it a pretty early night, but enjoyed quite a few fireworks on our walk home. I have to say, it was the perfect way to spend our last Independence Day in the U.S. for a couple years! Hope yours was just as lovely!

  1. sweet little henry!! he's so cute … I feel like most dogs are total sissys when it comes to fireworks. JBs families big labradoodle hides in the closet whenever there's a little bit of rain/thunder/ or lightning.

    you look gorgeous and i loooove that skirt. perfect for the occasion liz!!


  2. looks like a beautiful weekend! we just brought home an 8 week old puppy last night – can't wait to take it out next year for the 4th just like you did!

  3. Gorgeous photos! It was my puppies first fourth too, and they handled it surprisingly well. Glad you all go to enjoy them a bit.
