Memories & Jokes to Remember: Within a few minutes of being at the shelter in the park, a police officer came to “break us up”. We were all a little nervous as it was the first time we’d been out or seen each other in a long time! We couldn’t believe how quickly he found us.
He didn’t end up making us split up, since we were following the rules and were a smaller group, but it felt very surreal.
-Britt M brought special popsicles and it gave us all a good laugh and release of tension. She also brought her dog Cappie, and he was a hit!
-We all got to meet Alanna’s sweet baby Lucas in person! He was so cute and squishy.
-Britt W gave me (Kalen) my first sourdough starter!
-We were very careful with one another and it felt a little odd, but we did it.
