A Year in Pictures: Our Instagram Memories from 2020!

A Year in Pictures: Our Instagram Memories from 2020!
28 Dec 2020

Wow, 2020 has come and gone, and what a very different year it has been!

2020 saw the COVID-19 pandemic change the way we do everything, and forced a lockdown that kept us all in our homes for several weeks. It saw new terms like “social distancing”, new problems like a toilet paper shortage, waves from a distance instead of handshakes, and the use of face masks and hand sanitizer become the new norm.

There were also some very special moments in 2020. While we only got out camping twice, we spent a lot of quality time together as a family.

Here are some select Instagram photos from this amazing year!
