Just My Size!

Kids have a way of doing things that just make you smile.  It's always surprising and amusing how even the tiniest of tots can be pretty resourceful.  Take, for instance, my daughter's witty idea a few weeks ago when we visited my family in Ohio.  While we were up at their lake house, we ate almost every meal outside to enjoy the lake view and the beautiful weather.  Plus, with six adults and five kids, we simply had more table space outside than inside. 

Typically, the adults would always sit at my parents' patio table and chairs while the kids would eat at the 6' Lifetime picnic table.  Even though it wasn't a children's Lifetime picnic table, all of the kiddos could reach just fine, except for my two-year-old daughter, Alyssa.  She loves being like the big kids though so don't think for a second that size would stop her! 

Nope, usually Alyssa just sat on her knees and could reach the tabletop without much problem.  One meal, though, she got pretty wiggly and silly and actually fell off.  (Thank goodness she wasn't hurt.) So, the next meal, instead of trying to sit still like we asked, she came up with her own plan!  She simply pulled her little toddler outdoor chair up to the bench of the picnic table and used the bench as her tabletop.  It was the perfect height for her!  And, who knew a plate was the perfect size to sit on a picnic table bench?  Alyssa was finally able to sit on her bottom and was still able to eat at the picnic table with the big kids!  Now, why didn't I think of that?!

An Elegant Wedding Reception
A few months ago I attended a wedding reception for an old friend of mine. He and his bride chose a beautiful nursery garden for the location; a small waterfall, a pond, and the abundance of lush foliage set the perfect scene. T he entire setup also used Lifetimetables and chairs in a great way that was simple and elegant, to be specefic, they used Lifetime round tables and folding chairs.Having planned my own wedding just 1 year ago last week, the whole process is still fresh on my mind. He and his bride emailed me 6 months before the wedding asking for some tips and contacts. So naturally, I was very curious to see how the reception turned out. After being a picky bride, you tend to notice all those things that tend to take SO MUCH time to choose. You appreciate the little details that took hours of debating, several las...

This giveaway has ended. We've been telling you about our new Lifetime Payette Kayaks for several weeks now onthis blog and Facebook. It's our first sit-inside Lifetime kayak and it was even feature on The Price is Right in the Showcase Showdown a few weeks ago! I had the opportunity to try one these new kayaks for the first time last week at our annual sales conference... and it was great! It's a nice size(116" long) and has a seat back, front and rear shock cords, footrests and a paddle cradle. It even has a cool cargo holder with a cover that's perfect for your camera, keys, a coat, lunch, and more. But, instead of us just telling you about, we decided it's better to let you actually try it for yourself. So, since summer is just around the corner, this month we are giving away a Lifetime Payette Kayak to one random winne...
