This year our family went as various versions of Loki, from the Disney+ show of the same name. We were joined by our friends Dean and Amanda (unfortunately Jacob, slated to play Alligator Loki, had a last-minute stomachache).
We hosted a big party, the first time we’ve done that since before the pandemic.
As usual, we decorated our Radio Flyer wagon and served cocktails to other parents while trick-or-treating. Unfortunately, temperatures in the lower 30s and what the weathermen euphemistically call “mixed precipitation” kept crowd size very low.
It takes me forever to edit my trip photos, but there’s no need to wait a year for the family shots. This year’s trip took us to Washington State.
Nate’s Visit to Oklahoma
Capitol Reef National Park
Days after becoming fully vaccinated, Rich drove out to Capitol Reef National Park in Utah. There he met his friend Doug Morganthaler from Redlands, California.
Halloween this year was pretty tamed down from previous years. No trick-or-treating, and no family-themed costume. Dorinna organized an outdoor party, but with cold weather and increased infection counts, we had to modify those plans. The kids all dressed up in costume and met at our house to pick up a bag of goodies. Then they went home and joined a Zoom meeting. Dorinna put together two hours of group games online. She even provided parents with instructions to set up a treasure hunt inside their own houses. While not the same as previous years, everyone had a fun time.
