Metro Retro 2011

Saturday Maisie competed at Metro Retro and as she always does at competitions, she had so much fun!  Overall she had a very good meet but like her last meet Cobb Kick Off, the beam wasn’t her best friend.

IMG_0708eAt this meet Maisie took one fall on the beam but just like her banner on the gym wall reads, she’s still my A-Maisie-ing Maisie!  Even with her fall on the beam Maisie still medaled in all four events and took Second Place All-Around.

I love watching Maisie compete but I swear that I don’t breathe the entire meet as I’m always so nervous for her.  Thankfully I’m the one with the nerves and Maisie just loves and enjoys it. 

Here are the obligatory hands in the air pictures and because this is my scrapbook for Maisie, a listing of her scores.

Great meet Maisie and all the North Metro USA Level 3 girls, you Rocked the House!

I mentioned in my previous post and on my Southwest Pasta Salad post on Cook Lisa Cook that I prepared all the food, breakfast, lunch, dinner and all the desserts for the visiting & home Coaches as well as the Judges for the gymnastics meet at Maisie’s gym on Saturday.  For the desserts I wanted all little pick-up cookies, pastries and bars so that it was neat, there wasn’t much waste and everyone could quickly grab a sweet treat or two between their sessions.  I did serve some of my “old” stand-by favorites like Oatmeal Coconut Raspberry Bars, Lemon Squares, Rolo Brownie Bites and Lime Jewels and I also added some wonderful new cookies to the mix including these little Walnut Roca Squares which were a real winning recipe.  I originally made these for us to enjoy a number of weeks ago and we loved them so much I had to make them again as I knew they’d be perfect for the meet and they were!  Click on the picture to be taken to the recipe.IMG_0456e
