When I was a little girl I was the oldest of my cousins. Before they came along I had the pleasure of sitting with the adults at each family meal however, as our family grew, I soon found myself at the dreaded kids table. We didn't have an awesome miniature card table, or even our own chairs. We sat, on our knees, at grandma's monstrosity of coffee table, shoveling food into our mouths as fast as we could to get back to play time. And, because grandma's table was actually more of an expensive wooden antique than a practical piece of furniture, the cousin caught at the table last was often blamed for any stains or 'markings' left on it's surface.
We had children from 14 months to 14 attending, and every age was fascinated by the colorful, indestructible, table set up in the shady corner near the lounge area. While the easy to clean plastic surface is quickly wipe-able, I heard 4 year-old Noah telling his friends not to 'make it messy' as he proudly showed it off. There was even an orange Little Tikes garden chair, just for the toddlers to lounge in beneath the pop up umbrella, at the side. As it turns out our mini furniture stole the show, our fellow parents couldn't believe the garden chairs were just $7, and the picnic table was entirely fold-able.
