Where is the best place to meet more couples like us?

My dh and I are in a unique situation apparently. We desperately want to meet other couples with children and like mindsets. But it feels like this is impossible. Everyone our ages seems incredibly immature.
We're 26
1 5yr old with another due in Aug
We're both serious students
He works full time
I'm a stay home mom
We own a house
Two cars
Don't drink or use drugs
We don't go out to bars, clubs, parties
We spend most of our time together (and enjoy/prefer it that way)
And we don't believe in blowing money unnecessarily.

Where on earth can we meet more couples like us that are close to our age? Any suggestions would be nice, I'm losing hope.

We have met and maintained friendships through my childrens friends. In preschool when we started having friends over , we got to know patents and started inviting them over.

I met other couples with similar interests and backgrounds in our neighborhood. I'd take the children on walks and stop and talk with the moms who were outside, then we'd get together for lunches, and friendships blossomed from there. Also I've had friendships with the people I went to school with and their husbands. Some of our best friends right now are coworkers that my husband met at work and we all enjoy similar things (the two couples.)  I think what I am mainly suggesting is that you meet other ladies first, see how that friendship works out, and then progress to getting together as couples. If you jump right into getting together as couples and then find you don't like the wife, then it wouldn't work out.

Being active in your children's school is a good place to meet other people with similar interests, either the faculty or through parent/ teacher groups.

Church, work, your child's school.... you might even look into meetup groups.

I feel like that. The couples who are our age are just starting their families, so the kids can't play together. The couples with kids the same age are 10+ years older and we don't have anything in common. We're just stuck in the middle.
