We met and became friends with a crew that is now know as the “pajama squad”. A group of friends that met at Loveland 3 years ago. Olivia Hall, Michael Kin, and Abby Meyers. The trio had animal themed onesie pajamas that they wore all night and onto the slops. 2nd chair honors go to Olivia Hall, Michael Kin, and Abby Meyers.
