Do you remember Me and My Llama?



The llama had a baby!  How exciting is that!



When my daughters were little we would drive to the nearby countryside to see the llama.  We were avid fans of Sesame Street and the visit always seemed to coincide with the program's "Me and My Llama" trip to the dentist.  Our trip always included the song (Well, at least the refrain!) and was so much fun!



Today, we live quite a distance from town...it isn't really, truly country any longer but it is on the edge of the foothills and just about country!  We drive by the field with the llama every day.  And every day I think about the trips we took with our daughters to see them.  Today, though, brought a surprise.  There was a baby llama!  This is the first time we have seen a baby llama.  It is adorable.


I was never able to get a picture of the little guy standing up!

Recently, they were moved to a different pen and I can see why...the little guy could easily get under the fence.


I don't think the mama was happy with the intrusion...her ears are back...


I really want to reach out and pet him.  He looks as though he would be so soft.


I am sending this over to Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday!  Take a few minutes to visit.  There are always some exciting adventures!

  9. He's a cute little feller. A guy raises Llamas about 3 miles from here and we occasionally swing by and have a look.
