Maisie Ripping at Bounders Beach Bash

photo e I can’t believe that I haven’t posted since last Saturday when Maisie met Nathaniel but this has been a busy, busy week and the days just seemed to get away from me.  Though I’ve known for ages that Maisie and I were going away, Thursday morning I was rushing like crazy trying to get packed as Maisie, her teammate Alyssa, her Mom and I were heading down together to Gulf Shores, Alabama right after school, for their gymnastics meet Friday. 

photo (1)eIt was a loooooong drive but thankfully once we made it out of Atlanta there was no traffic at all.  When we were almost at our beach condo we stopped for dinner and the girls were all hugs together. 

photo (2)eAngela took a picture of the view from our condo in Gulf Shores, Alabama Friday morning before we headed off to the girl’s competition in the Bounder’s Beach Blast.  This was a huge meet with over 560 gymnasts competing so sessions started Friday with Maisie’s group and continue through to Sunday.  In Maisie’s session Friday there were 57 USA level 4 girls competing. 

Maisie had a wonderful meet and even beat her nemesis the beam!  Maisie and her teammates did great and as a team took first place.  Glad that her meet is over and now we can now enjoy the beach before heading home Sunday. 

Here they are, the obligatory hands in the air pictures and the scores. (They lined the girls up from left to right showing first through eighth place.)

Maisie of course had a blast at the Beach Bash and is looking forward to her next meet in just three weeks.

Monday over on Cook Lisa Cook I posted my Secret Recipe Club post for September and this month I made some absolutely delicious Fried Green Tomatoes.  I’m never going to admit how many *I* actually ate but it was a lot!!  These tomatoes are just beyond delicious and growing up as a Northerner I didn’t know what I was missing out on.  Two great reasons to move to the South, virtually no snow in the winter and Fried Green Tomatoes.  Click on the link or the picture to be taken to Cook Lisa Cook and the recipe.
