You know those friends who you love hanging out with but rarely get to see because of distance? We have a lot of those friends and recently spent the afternoon with one sweet family that we hope to see more of. One of my former coworkers, Megan, now lives in Stillwater with her husband Justin and two adorable kiddos.
Megan and I have kept in touch since working together more than five years ago and always pick up where we left off. We knew our husbands and kids would hit it off too, so we met up at the Myriad Botanical Gardens on Saturday for an afternoon playdate and dinner.
Of course we picked one of the hottest days of the year, so we didn't do a whole lot of exploring around the gardens before heading over to the splash pad and shaded children's garden/playground. The kids had a blast together and the parents enjoyed hours of catching up. When we left, the boys asked if they could have a sleepover, so I'd say they had fun too!
Found a rare shady spot and decided to visit the ducks and fish near the crystal bridge

Finally it was time to cool off in the splash pad!
Gray playing monster trucks with his new buddy Dawson while we wait for our pizza. I realized later that I didn't get a picture of Dawson's big sister Avyn. She's equally as adorable and I can't wait to see them and their fun parents again soon!
