Lifetime Chairs at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Did you know that an estimated 2.5 million people go to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City each year? That’s roughly twice the population of Hawaii, and all these people are standing on the same street in New York City at the same time to watch the parade. That’s a lot of people all hoping to get front row spots for the festivities!

Because there’s such limited front-row space, people show up 3 or 4 hours before the parade starts to get the best views, which means a lot of time standing and waiting. This year, to make the morning more relaxing, we decided to bring Lifetime Chairs to some of these people who were anticipating the start of the parade. That way, they could have a comfortable place to sit and rest their feet while getting a great view of all the floats, dancers and balloons. All the people who sat in our Lifetime Chairs during the parade got great views of Miley Cyrus, Hello Kitty, Dora the Explorer and others.

When I was a kid, I got up really early to get a good view of the parade, and I definitely wanted a place to sit then, so it was exciting to put such a smile on people’s faces with chairs this year! I couldn’t believe how many people told us that they had already set up Lifetime Tables and Chairs for their Thanksgiving dinners that evening.

Once the parade was over, we took the chairs and went home to our friends and family. Since Lifetime Chairs are lightweight and they fold up, it was easy for us to get through the crowds. In fact, a few people even noticed how well we maneuvered and said they would definitely bring their own Lifetime Chairs from home next year!

Bad News, Good News
Well, just when we think we have something figured out, plans always change. When we bought our house, we paid a little extra for our lot because of the abundance of trees. We were thrilled to find such a beautiful lot because the trees give us complete privacy from our neighbors, provide a gorgeous view from our family room and kitchen windows, and make for a unique play area for the kids. Unfortunately, over this past weekend, one of the tallest trees in our yard just up and died. No clue why. We happened to be playing with the kids in the back yard and noticed all the leaves on the Mountain Laurel treeare completely brown…which they aren’t supposed to be even though it’s autumn. Obviously, weare sad to loose such a big tree and we are hoping it’s not a disease that may spread to our other trees. But, on the bright side… w...
My kayak outing!
Every summer, my church plans some sort of camping/boating outing for many reasons but mostly to have fun and enjoy each others company. This year was no different. We ended up on the hills of Heber City at Heber Valley Camp. Knowing I worked for Lifetime, I had several requests to bring kayaks for our day at the lake. So, I checked out the trailer with 12 Lifetime Monterrey Kayaks and we spent all day Saturday paddling around. Needless to say, Lifetime kayaks were a hit! I heard nothing but positive compliments about the boats. Many people were amazed at the stability of the kayaks. A lot of people who had never tried kayaking expected the kayaks to feel like canoes that can tip with any sudden movement. But, theyre not! Kayaks have a much wider, flatter hull than a canoe so they are a lot more stable especially Lifetime k...
Card Table and Chairs - A Wedding Gift of Yesteryear?
I'm not a wedding expert, but I think it's safe to say that wedding gifts have changed over the years. Or, at least the way we decide what to give as a wedding gift. Today, the happy couple typically registers at their favorite store for gifts they want or think they need for their new home. So, a majority of gift givers simply pick something off the list or give a gift card so the couple can make their own purchase. Sure, this method has some advantages. But, in most instances, gone are the days of creative gift giving. Case and point I can't remember the last time I was at a wedding and saw a card table and chairs sitting there as a gift. But apparently, once upon a time, a card table and chairs was a popular wedding gift. We had numerous entrants to this month's giveaway who said they currently own a card table that was gi...
