Weekend Getaway

Last weekend Andy and I stayed at a the Star of Texas Bed and Breakfast in Brownwood. It was a surprise for Andy before he deployed. We had a nice time and enjoyed just relaxing. Our favorite part though was the llama. That's right! A llama! When we arrived our host told us about their art trail that we could walk on. He also warned us that they had a friendly llama that would accompany us on this hike. At first I did not think he was serious. He told us all about how to "speak" llama by blowing in his face and how sometimes this llama likes to run up behind young ladies and kiss their neck.
So the next day we begin our hike and sure enough the llama joins us! We spent quite some time blowing in his face so he would like us. I am sure it was a pretty funny site. Mr. llama followed us during the entire 1 mile trail. And sure enough, at the very end of the hike he ran up from behind me to kiss my neck. Fair warned I still did not expect this and reacted as such. Andy got a big kick out of my fear.

It was such a fun hike and nice weekend. Check the place out if you want a quaint getaway,

Please forgive my appearance. I was super sick.
