I mentioned in my last post that we had permits to raft the San Juan river. Way back in March we snagged the permits. We didn’t get selected through the lottery, but after lottery recipients accepted or declined they released any extra permits. Quarantine had just started and we figured things would be better by June. As the weeks progressed, we began to realize there was a strong chance the trip would be cancelled.

When they said they could watch the kids the day we did the hike we began planning our final summer adventure.
July is when summer started to pick up. We were gone almost half of the month so our time in town was spent doing laundry, working, taking our cat to the vet, and packing for our next adventure.
In October we: Got flu shots. Ellen put on a cat fashion show. (It gives a whole different meaning to the cat walk 😉 ) Cooper designed lightsabers.
