One fun thing we’ve been able to do during COVID the past few months is going places to be outside with our dog, Berkeley. We’ve brought her to dog parks, city parks, Dan’s parents’ backyard. We are taking safety during the pandemic very seriously–we wear masks everywhere we go, social distance, and avoid crowds of any size (with exceptions for things we find super important such as protests)–but it’s also been important for us to be outside sometimes, too. Berkeley has been an excellent excuse to be outside. We like to joke that with our new car (bought in preparation for baby), and our puppy, we’ll be quite the family men by the time baby arrives.
