Often overlooked by guests when planning a vacation sleepover at a friend's house is today's title post question. I think on some level the guests just make an assumption that the hosts will consider their bed situation and designate specific areas, locations, beds, cots, couches, etc. for their guests to sleep on.
How fortunate we Traveling Case Circus members are that our good friends the Amsdens are excellent sleepover hosts! They rearranged almost everything to make us almost more comfortable than we are in our own home. Shout out to Breanna for giving up her supposedly super comfy bed and her room for Karen and I (and Spencer since he's still so little).
That said, it sometimes takes convincing to help some visitors that the sleeping arrangements are going to be just fine.
To the right is a picture of the eventual sleeping set-up for our three younger girls (this was the original planned set-up but it took quite a bit of discussion to finalize with these three girls). Catalina didn't think she could fall asleep with us playing games in the next room. Myra wasn't tired and wouldn't lay down. And Savannah didn't want to be all alone in the bed.
Long story short, everyone (and there are 9 of us) has a great spot to sleep for the night (and tomorrow night too) and we're looking forward to some great fun together over General Conference and Balloon Fiesta weekend!
Song Of The Day:
One of the girls (I forget who exactly) was also concerned that they might wander away in the middle of the night. That phrase reminded me of the song "River Of Dreams" by Billy Joel, which has lyrics referencing going walking in the middle of the night. I promised the girls we would find them if they did wander off ... not sure if that helped them much. :)
