I was kind of nervous, as we have never had house guests stay with us for that long. It's a level in friendship that most friends don't get the opportunity to attain. Most of our friends live here and there isn't a need to have family sleep overs.
Will our families mesh, would there be enough space for 3 adults, 4 big kids and 2 little ones? I don't think it could have gone any better. The kids had so much fun, I have so many mental images of them playing stand up comedy, giggling, playing hide n seek, deciding they were flying squirrels and countless other games. And Mia and I would stay up and chat for a few hours after the kids went down. It really was fun, easy and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
