Peace, love and gymnastics

IMG_0682eToday Maisie competed in her third gymnastics meet of the season.  Metro Retro was a home meet and all the girls marched in wearing retro clothes.  As always Maisie had a blast competing and being with her friends and teammates.  Overall she had a very good meet and I hope to get pictures and a video up in the next day or two but for now, just a few pictures from before the meet started.

IMG_0719eResting…I mean stretching before the meet.

I love watching Maisie compete and couldn’t image not watching her but I find the meets very stressful and even now, hours later I’m still so very keyed up and I need to relax a bit and get some sleep!  On days like this I sort of wish that I was a drinker because I could use one. 

Then too it’s been a stressful and busy week as I was asked to make all the meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner for the home and visiting Coaches as well as the Judges.  So I have been cooking, baking, cooking and baking this past week.  One of the items that I made for lunch was a Southwest Pasta Salad and oh was it beautiful looking and wonderful tasting!  Click on the picture to be taken to the recipe and make this pasta salad because it is awesome!IMG_0667e4

  1. Wow - Maisie makes that stretching look effortless! Love the pics - very VERY retro! :)

  2. I hear ya! Love the pictures and I'm sure she did wonderful. I hope beam turned out well. It wasn't so well for Maddie today.

  3. I love that first picture of Maisie. Adorable!

    I take bubbles baths with soft music sometimes when I want to relax. In fact, that sounds like a plan for tonight!

  4. That looks like so much fun! I love her groovy dress.
    Naomi had her first gymnastics class yesterday and loved it!

  5. Love the retro theme! Her outfit is darling. Glad she loves gymnastics so much. I never, ever have been able to, or will be able to, lay on the floor like she does.
