Sometimes windows of opportunities open up and this evening was one of them. The weather was finally nice and as I was driving by this field earlier in the day, I saw some of the lupines starting to bloom between the Scotch broom.  I texted my dear friend and her daughter to meet me with Ruby that evening while our boys were on a scouting overnight to take a few pictures in the flowers. 

Alivia has one of the tenderest, loving hearts I know. She loves the Lord and people purely and has a generous personality. She wraps others in her care and thoughtfulness. To know her is to love her and she has a big circle of us around her who are attracted to her warm and sunny heart. She's almost ten and it was so special to take some pictures of her and her mom together to celebrate. What a gift these girls are to us!
