Impromptu Kids' Picnic Table

I know, I know.  You're probably getting tired of hearing about my Lifetime Spring Break stories.  But, I can't help it!  There were just too many to share.  But, I promise, this is my last one...at least for Spring Break 2009.  :)

The weather during Spring Break was absolutely gorgeous.  We spent practically every waking minute outside.  So, it was no surprise that my kids wanted to eat lunch outside on the little tiny condo balcony one day.  (And, I do mean tiny!) 

At home, my kids eat outside quite often on their own little kids' picnic table.  But, the only patio furniture at the condo were tall, bar-height chairs designed so you could see over the railing to view the ocean...not exactly conducive for short, fidgety kids.  So, we had to improvise.  Sure, we could have just let them eat on a blanket on the ground, but they wanted a table.  Never fear, Grandma (or Mammy, as my kids call her) to the rescue! My Mom pulled out her Lifetime Personal Table and set it at the lowest height.  (Oh, I forgot to mention, she packed that table, TOO!) Voila!  We didn't have any kid-size chairs, so my daughter simply stood to eat and my son ate on his knees. It certainly wasn't ideal for every meal, but it did make for a fun lunch treat one day. 

Aaah, basking in the sun and watching the waves roll in while sipping a Capri Sun...doesn't get much better for a kid!

Our Fastest Way to Spread Compost
I think I can finally move again without feeling pain in every inch of my back and arms. Remember in my Great Wheelbarrow Showdown post how I mentioned that my husband and I spread six yards of compost on our front and backyard? Did I mention that I was the one who shoveled absolutely every bit of compost into the Wheelbarrow and Yard Cart? Yep, me and my big buff muscles. Ouch! Anyway, in my Great Wheelbarrow Showdown post, my test results for the best actual wheelbarrow had the Lifetime Wheelbarrow beating out the Lifetime Yard Cart and a traditional wheelbarrow. The Lifetime Yard Cart could hold twice as much dirt as the Lifetime Wheelbarrow and it pushed fairly easy considering the amount of weight in it. However, it failed the wheelbarrow tipping test because once you dump the load, you cant control how much you dump. ...

Happy Picnicking - Inside or Out!
When we decided to give away a Lifetime 6' Picnic Table this month, we thought it was the perfect time of year since it's summertime and the popular July 4th picnic season is just a few weeks away. But, guess what? We learned from your entries that a lot of you would use a Lifetime Picnic Table year-round! Of course, those of you who live in warm climates will use the table outside all year. But, a lot of you who live in colder climates said you would still use your picnic table by folding it and carrying it into the sunroom, the basement for a sewing table or laundry table, or even store it but unfold it for extra dining space during the holidays. The convenient folding feature of the Lifetime Picnic Table definitely makes it a very versatile product. Congratulations to David C. of Riverton, UT. He was the lucky random winn...
