Gymnastics and Baseball

On Thursday, my mom and I got to go to the Visa Gymnastics Championships. My mom called me that morning and ask if I really wanted to go...we had talked about going before. She told me to buy the best tickets I could. I got second row tickets right in front of the floor. We went to dinner first and then to the event. We got to see Nastia Luiken, Bridget Sloan, Samatha Piezak, and some new comers Rebecca Bess and Ivana Hong. Nastia stood right in front of us while her rotation did their floor routines. She only competed on beam but it was so cool to get to see her. After the competition, they presented Carly Patterson and Nastia with a special award so we got to see Carly as well. In case you don't know who I am talking about, Carly was the women's all around gold medalist at the 2004 Olympics and Nastia was the women's all around gold medalist at the 2008 Olympics. Then on Friday night, Justin and I went to the Rangers game with his whole family including our new niece, Adah. The Rangers lost but we had a great time catching up with everyone. I finally remembered my enjoy.

OK, so gymnastics and baseball. And a photo of someone flipping off the mat. Speaking of photos, I did like the deer in the headlights shot. Thanks.
