1. Favorite face moisturizer? (My clinique is running out and wondered if there is something better or same quality without breaking my face out)

2. Outside--which do you prefer or have....table with umbrella or table under a tent/gabezo?

3. When getting a mani/pedi, do you always get both at the same time?

Locale makes a huge difference here.  Daytime temps are often 100+ in the shade here, so we tend to keep things in the early evening.  And even at 9-10pm a firepit wouldn't be used in teh summer - our overnight lows are often in the 80s.

Yeah, I can see that being TOO hot to do many things outside. I don't like the fire pit when it is really warm out. I enjoy it more in the fall and spring months.

We usually went out with friends, when dd was small enough for this to be an issue. By the time she was 9 or 10, she would not necessarily be hanging around with the adults, just because we decided to see our friends, at home or out. By the time she was 12-13, for sure not. Here kids routinely play outside after dark in the summer, because it is too hot otherwise.

Oh, I'm so sorry you're not capable of handling all that.

Handling all of what? I currently have a table that holds 6 people (or I should say that has 6 chairs but we have put more around it). I do like the 10 person tables though. Maybe next time Laughing

The kids usually don't hang out with the adults, IME. They are usually off doing things in the pool (unless they need adult supervision in the pool), playing games, etc.

I was never talking about a party with 6 people needing to sit & eat.  But even if you were, apparently not everyone needs to sit at a table & "dine."  Sounds like other people are more casual, at least sometimes.  Like Ggal we sit around the fire when we camp & when we are at our cabin on the beach.  No tables out on the beach, we can still manage to sit in a chair and roast a marshamallow and have a beer at the same time.  And yes we might need to set it on the ground while we ready the stick.  I think some of the campchairs have drink holders so you can set it in there.  But there are also stumps & logs that we sit on around the campfire. They do not come with drinkholders.

Yes, but mine is an only, so she would generally have to go somewhere to have company.

Yes, I have chairs like that too for the sports fields and for outside concerts Laughing
