Ella and her friend Brileigh cooked up a plan that they just had to have a sleepover, and so we decided to give it a try a few weeks ago. I picked the girls up from camp on Friday afternoon and they were beyond excited for their big night (and it had been a week of non-stop excitement leading up to Friday).
Swimming that afternoon
They had a great time - lots of swimming, playing, they even got to watch Littlest Pet Shop while they ate dinner. After dinner we baked and decorated cookies.
All was great until it was actually bedtime - these two had other plans in mind. I started putting them to bed at 9pm and they were finally both asleep a few minutes before 11pm - sheesh! Of course the late bedtime didn't keep them from being up early for more playing on Saturday, they got right back to their fun.
And they swam again Saturday morning before Brileigh's mom came to pick her up.
They have so much fun together and it was a really fun night - while I can't say I'm in a hurry for the next sleepover, I am very glad that Ella had so much fun and it was such a treat for her.
