My Mister and His Llama

My husband has been away this week on an adventure.  He went backpacking in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.  He hiked with a group and even had his very own llama to carry some of his gear.

If I had known the llamas were that cute, I would have gone!  Well, maybe not to hike but I would have liked to pet the llamas. ♥


  1. You crack me up!
    Have you ever been to Yellowstone?
    Yellowstone is my ol' stomping grounds :) My dad took us six kids every summer. Mom would pack the trailer, and dad would pack the fishing poles, and off we would go to spend the summer in ol' Yellowstone :)
    Best days ever!
    Fishing Bridge campground, Yellowstone river fishing, etc.

    Thanks for sparking my sweet memories of a wonderful place.

    Have a lovely weekend.

    1. Kerin, I've never been to Yellowstone. My family (growing up) didn't camp. Your summers sound like so much fun! My husband arrives home tonight. I'm sure I'll hear all about it. He did say that the first 2 nights were difficult with rain and snow. Yikes!

  2. I will never forget when we went to a park and a llama spit on my mother in law, they are cute but they are a bit nasty too :) Wow snow already, I bet it was quite an adventure, we went a couple years back but didn't do any long hikes, just the one around the ridge they have.

    1. Yikes, Connie! I mentioned this to my mister and he said that one of the six llamas was rowdy but no spitting.


But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
