As a family we would spend vacation every year in the same beach house that my father spent vacation in growing up. My mom always loved the lifeguard stands (lifeguard chairs) at Beach Haven, NJ. She mentioned casually one time in the summer of 2013 that she would really like to have one of those chairs for the backyard. For mothers' day this year, my brother Harry and I decided that we would build one for her. She calls it her umpire chair/stand for tennis, but thats because she painted it white instead of what I wanted to do. I wanted it to be yellow and have big red letters: KEEP OFF THE DUNES and SWIM BETWEEN THE FLAGS.
