A birthday with Alpacas!

IMG_1384

Yesterday was my husbands 29th birthday! I surprised him with a trip to an Alpaca farm. His family had some a while back and he loved them! This plan was last minute so I was thrilled when I heard back from Sarah of Alpaca Dreams NC! (Link at bottom of blog.) She was so sweet. She even put up a “Happy Birthday” sign and made Raul a card from all the Alpacas! Raul and I had so much fun!

The photo above is actually a Llama. I learned that they are used as guards, and they stomp to scare away predators, like dogs.

I also learned that even though Miaya’s hair in the photo below looks so soft, you don’t touch it. They don’t like it when you touch the top of their heads. Learned that lesson the hard way! 🙂 But, we did get some hats from her hair, so thanks Miaya!
