A few weeks ago I sent an email out to a group of women I know from the internet (blogs, Instagram, Facebook) and asked if they would be interested in doing a Happy Hollow meetup. I was the only one that knew everyone (and some of the people I emailed I have yet to meet in person!) and I thought it would a fun way to get to know a bunch of people at the same time. Plus T1 cannot get enough time with friends (and everyone under the age of 18 is an instant friend for him).
We picked a date about a month away, and as I expected people dropped out over the coming weeks (things come up, you know?) and the morning of we were set to meet two other families with two kids at Happy Hollow. Unfortunately one of the families had a really sick daughter and so it dropped down to just me and my kids and the family of a friend from BYU. We love these guys and are so happy they moved to the area! I also love that Maria told me outright “I don’t mind if you take pictures of my kids and post them online.”
Once I’m back from Washington and unpacked a bit, I’d love to try to arrange another one of these meetups. Let me know in the comments if you’d like to be part of the email list next time I try to set something up. Wouldn’t it be cool if we could visit the Treatbot Karaoke Ice Cream Truck together? Or maybe we could all go to the beach! (I’m craving some hot weather and a swim, I here it’s going to be something we see this weekend).
