Even though it was roasting out, M was running around with balloons, and I quickly grabbed my camera and invited her on a quick desert adventure. This little girl loves nature and did not even mind the heat. When I look at these photos, I wish I could bottle up her energy, freedom and innocence for her to return to when she needs it as an adult. She is growing up quick, but I am thankful for these spontaneous, carefree moments. She is, and always will be the best birthday gift I have ever received. I love you birthday-twin!
