Life Is Short...So Are Adjustable Height Tables!

Life Is Short...So Are Adjustable Height Tables!

Life Is Short...So Are Adjustable Height Tables!

In my Spring Break post, I mentioned how my parents crammed their van full and drove from Ohio to Texas to stay in a condo on the beach in Port Aransas for the month of March.  Let me tell you, they packed practically everything but the kitchen sink.  Literally.  Clothes, tool boxes, fishing poles, a laptop, a printer, bicycles, a sewing machine... and even a Lifetime table!  Seriously!  My mom packed her 4' fold-in-half adjustable height table so she could use it as her sewing table.  (Thank goodness its compact for easy transportation because they needed every inch of cargo space they could get.) 

Mom set the table up right in front of the windows so she could enjoy the ocean view while she sewed.  She loves to make quilts as a hobby, but I also took advantage of her skills and had her take tucks in some of my skinny-mini son's shorts and a fix shirt for me.

Luckily, she didn't need to pack her Lifetime chairs.  She just borrowed chairs from the condo's social room which was completely filled with Lifetime tables and chairs!

The portability of Mom's Lifetime table also proved handy on St. Patrick's Day when several of the condo neighbors got together for a festive potluck.  Mom carried her Lifetime table up to the neighbors so they would have more eating space that night.  Here's a funny story though.  She took the table up earlier in the day and just left it with the neighbor without explaining anything about it.  When they went back up that night to eat, the neighbor said, "Thanks for bringing the table, but I think we'll just use it to set food on since it's much too low to eat on."  Really?  Well, turns out the neighbor didn't realize the table was adjustable in height so she when she unfolded the legs it automatically set up at the lowest kid height!  Ooops!  I guess the adjustable legs aren't always intuitive.  So, lessoned learned, if you loan out your adjustable height table, you might want to be sure and mention how to raise and lower the legs.  :)

Keeping Kids’ Safety in Mind
Spring is in the air―at least here in Utah. The neighborhood is slowly coming back to life as kids and their parents are reemerging from their indoor hibernation. Time to find the bicycle pump and rollerblade knee pads because, at last, the kids can go outside and play! With the comeback of Spring also comes a greater need for drivers to be aware of the little ones out and about. To this end, Lifetime is introducing a new product this season, the Child Alert sign. This unique sign is shaped like a small child chasing after a soccer ball. Chucky, as we affectionately refer to him, is bright construction orange and carries a sign that says slow. His base is made similar to the portable bases that Lifetime made famous with our basketball systems, and can be filled with water or sand for even more stability. If youre like me, ...
