A Tiny Girl Gang

A Tiny Girl Gang

Me and some of my sweetest friends made plans to take our girls to a Razorback Gymnastics meet….then one friend had to go out of town for family emergency business. And she HATED for her daughter to miss the meet- so I volunteered to keep her for the weekend so we could all go!

So we loaded up this tiny girl gang (so aptly named after Tara snapped this sassy pic of them!) and headed to Fayetteville. We stopped at Newk’s for a yummy quick dinner (though is anything quick with two toddlers and a preschooler?)

We had to park a little ways a way for the game, so we were all a bit ready to sit down from carrying toddlers or walking (sweet Lillian thought it was a LONG walk and it was!)

We were ready to cheer on the hogs (well, most of us. Lil was for LSU). There was the band, the cheerleaders, the mascots and all the gymnasts.  It was a lot to take in- and when it’s like that, Remi gets really stone faced taking it all in.


The girls were entertained more by the cheerleaders than the gymnasts! ha! (Which, TBH, it was set to music and a troupe of people instead of just one at a time)


We called the hogs- Remi’s first time at a Razorback sporting event! Wooooooo pig sooie!


It was princess and superhero night at the meet- they encourage families to come. Tara and I totally stole the crowns for a bit.


We went down to the concourse (which was a mistake- they just wanted to walk around after this) and got face painting and make GO HOGS GO signs. It’s fun that they have all of this for the kids.


Lillian waited in line and got a watermelon face tat…


And Remi decided she needed one while Lil was in the chair, but I didn’t want to cut in line for the girls waiting- so I asked the lady if I could just do a quick heart and she let me use her brush. Remi was happy.

The gymnasts were so good! When I was a TA in grad school, the gymnasts were my favorite students. They were always nice, polite and dedicated.


Lillian has watched LSU gymnastics on TV and she’s seen their yellow pom poms. She wanted one BAD. They don’t sell them (maybe they do at their own meets) but I found a section of family cheering on LSU and asked them for an extra. They happily gave me one for the biggest little LSU fan. The girls all shared it so nicely.


After the meet, they let the girls (and boys) on the mat to dance. These two ATE IT UP. Lillian kept backing into the corner like she was about to do a tumbling pass.


They slept well, even though we were home late and then we played at home ALL DAY LONG.

They played outside….


And we made and ate cookies. YUM!


It was fun to have a little house guest- and sweet Remi keeps asking to go pick Lillian up again. We are going to have to play together again soon!
