Now let me tell you, I have fallen in love with this table, for the following reasons:
(1) When it is time for lunch, I no longer have to yell "Everybody come inside for lunch!" forty thousand times. Instead, I just bring PB&J's out to the picnic table. Except for Owen, who refuses to have J on his PB&J. So he just gets a PB.
(2) When it is time for dinner, I no longer have to yell "Everybody come inside for dinner!" forty thousand times. Instead, I just bring pasta out to the picnic table. Yes, pasta might be an odd choice for picnic food. But when you're outnumbered by your children, you do what works.
My kids give the new picnic table a solid thumbs up. Or a solid pointer finger up, for Aidan and Owen. Still figuring out that opposable thumb thing. We'll get there.
P.S. It is also worth noting that I put it together all by myself!! Which is quite impressive for a lady who can't even open a jar of spaghetti sauce. Luckily the kids are partial to buttered-only pasta.
