The reason we need a king sized bed...

No one wanted to be left out so...we watched short track skating from the soft seats!  We will miss the Olympics.



I think we have all grown accustomed to tight sleeping quarters or something.  This is how I found the boys Saturday night. (all four on one top bunk)(and yes, they are watching Landon play DS) 


Back when my dad and I were making these beds, Dad insisted that we needed to use these very awkward (and super sturdy) bolts that took hours of practice to finally assemble correctly.
It's a good think we did.  No Shopko beds could hold up to this...

 
I don't think the kids are accustomed to having much private space.  It has been like that since the days when Dallin and Landon would climb into each others cribs. 
Austin and Benson shared a bed until we finished these bunk beds a few months ago.  They still have "sleepovers" where Benson gets in Austin's bed for the night.  (because you know, five feet separating beds is sooo far away...)

Jenna slept on the floor of the boys room for a month or so because she said it was no fair that she didn't have anyone to talk to.  See!--who needs a bigger house!  It's funny what is tolerable--it all depends on what you're used to.

That is awesome. I've never had my own room. I take that back. For 3 months in college I had my own room. It was the loneliest time I've ever had. How is Austin's science fair privacy screen working? Does he get to use that ipod pocket?

I am SO in love with the lady that does your family pictures. They are always so cute. Would you mind sending me a link to her?

okay, we need pictures of the beds, without the boys so we can get a real feel for your clever building strategies. Poor Jenna I feel for her...

We have the same sleeping arrangements at this house! All the kids, except baby, are sleeping every night in the boys room. By the way, I am all ready getting used to the size of this house... :-)

Hi. I just found you from blogger (I just joined today. :) I fell in love with the kid you wrote about and just had to come here (he reminds me of one of mine).

My husband and I had a California King for the same reason... We had a nearly 3 yr old, and twin babies on the way, and kicking her out of the bed wasn't an option! We later had another, and all 6 of us had slumber parties on that bed until the kids got too big, and the new house got too small. It was tough to give it up; I still miss our slumber parties from when the kids were smaller.

Hats of to your blog, your family, and your king sized bed! ;)
