As a kid, my summers were always lazy and unstructured. My sisters and I were always sent outside in the morning, and the day was spent trying to find activities to do.  My point is, summer is here and it's the perfect time to purchase some Lifetime playground equipment. One of my kids’ favorite games to play on our playset at home is “Fish Out of Water.” I sit with my eyes closed, and if I think one of my kids are off the playset I yell, “Fish out of water!” If they get caught, we switch and they have to try and catch me. Kids love to get a break from school during the summer, and we love our Lifetime playset. The best place for imaginative play and exercise is the safety of your own backyard. The great thing about Lifetime is our playsets are made to last. The equipment stands up to the ... More

Last year I wanted to come up with something original for a Mother’s Day gift.   I didn’t want to go with the traditional flowers, birdhouses, or candy.  Showing her how much she means to me and how much I appreciate everything she does is really important.    I racked my brain for days trying to come up with something creative, something different and something that could be enjoyed for more than just one day a year.  What would surprise her? What could I do that she wouldn’t expect?  Then it hit me!  A kayak!!   When Mother’s Day arrived she was never more excited!  Instantly she began listing off all the places she could go and how jealous all her friends would be.  I think the thing she liked the most was that now we could go out kay...

For most people, when they think about kayaking, they think of a day trip to the local lake.  Maybe a vacation day spent floating on the ocean, watching the birds and listening to the calm ocean ripples.  While these trips are great, with just a bit more effort, you can really turn a kayaking trip into a fun filled outdoor adventure. What better way to bond with your family or a group of friends then to be outside, away from all the electronic distractions, kayaking and camping in the wilderness.  There are several ways to enjoy a camping and kayak trip.  Some rivers flow through campgrounds, parks or national forest land allow camping right along the banks of the rivers.   This type of trip can be great for a weekend get-a-way.  Day one is spent paddling a few miles to ...

This spring, our watersports department has done something we never have before!  We are coming out with a limited edition paddleboard. Sure, this will be the Freestyle XL board we all know and love but there is something that makes it special; its Purple!  Not only is this our first limited edition kayak or paddleboard, it is also our first purple one! In total, there will be 325 Purple Freestyle XL’s out there for the lucky few who can get there hands on one.  I am personally a huge fan of purple, and I think this board looks great.  It has all the great characteristics of our other color boards; stability, buoyancy, padding, bungee straps and two fins. The dark purple color really blends well with the black bungees and confetti white and black foam.  It really pops and looks incredibly styl... More

 At Lifetime, Commitment, Innovation, and Quality, is more than just a slogan, it is a way of doing business!   We are constantly working to take our kayaks to the next level, above and beyond what is already out there.  We take suggestions and advice from you, the people who use our kayaks, and incorporate that into our designs.  After a lot of hard work we’ve come up with a kayak that is like nothing you’ve ever seen!I would like to introduce our brand new tandem kayak, the Kokanee!  It is 10'6" in length and can hold a combined weight of 425 lbs!  Sure, there are other tandem kayaks out there, but nothing as innovative and paddler friendly as our Kokanee.  We racked our brains to come up with new improvements.  We wanted to do something that wasn’t out there al...

Folding round table
If youre considering buying a card table, you owe it to yourself to check out this folding round table. Round tables typically dont take up any more room than those old-fashioned square card tables, but they roll and store so much easier its almost criminal to consider the square alternative. A folding round table generally has a greater surface area and can seat more people than square tables, they look nicer in a banquet setting, and are still ideal for game night, scrapbook parties, church activities, holiday events, and even garage sales. This folding round table is available with free shipping from BuyLifetime.com! Bulk discount pricing available.
Table Washing Can Be " Eggstremely" Fun
Happy Easter! I hope you are enjoying this beautiful, special day. Yesterday we finally managed to find time to let the kids dye Easter eggs just in time for the Easter bunny to hide them this morning. My kids had been begging me to do this for days so I knew they were going to be wound up and over-anxious for the activity. I wasnt too keen on the thought of dye possibly getting spilled on my kitchen rug. So, since the weather was absolutely gorgeous, I grabbed my Lifetime Personal Table and egg dyeing supplies and we headed outside where messes are always welcome. I placed the little cups of dye on the kids picnic table and I set my Lifetime Personal Table at the lowest height right next to the picnic table to hold the rest of the supplies so the kids would have plenty of room to move around. They had fun coloring their nam...
