Gymnastics 20 Questions!

gymnast

We’ve all asked “How was practice tonight?” on the car ride home from the gym. The problem with “how was practice” day in and day out is that it eventually loses it excitement and leaves us with the all-too-familiar “fine”,”ok” or “fun”. Regardless if you drop off or stay and watch you still want to know more than “it was fine”

Here is a fun 20 question game you can play with your gymnast on the way home from practice!

Gymnastics 20 Questions Game:

  1. Are you happy you are a gymnast?
  2. Did you have fun?
  3. How hard did you work?
  4. What was your favorite thing about Beam?
  5. What was your favorite thing about Bars?
  6. What was your favorite thing about Vault?
  7. What was your favorite thing about Floor?
  8. Did something funny happen at practice?
  9. What was the coolest thing you saw at practice?
  10. Were you proud of yourself at practice? Why?
  11. What was something your coach told you?
  12. Did you get any compliments at practice?
  13. Did you tell someone they did a good job?
  14. What skill are you most proud of?
  15. What skill do you need to work on the most?
  16. How did you feel after practice?
  17. What will you do differently at your next practice?
  18. What’s one word to describe practice?
  19. Does Gymnastics bring you joy and make you happy?
  20. Are you going to dream about gymnastics tonight?

I don’t know about you but I love conversation with my littles and this is 20 questions is a perfect way to stay connected and engaged with them! This can be adapted to any sport or activity your kids do!

Garland Activewear {gymnastics leotards}

Custom made Gymnastic Leotards in St Augustine, Florida

SHOP GARLAND ACTIVEWEAR GYMNASTIC LEOTARDS

Who doesn’t love leotards {especially gymnastic leotards} I love that they have the ability to radiate a personality 100%! Such is the case with my Gabbi and her Under the Sea Mesh Back Leotard from Garland Activewear!

This stunning leo is the embodiment of my little girl, sparkly and bold with a whole lot of Mermaid sprinkled in!

gaw5

I am THRILLED to be collaborating with Garland Activewear. I cannot wait to tell you all about the Leotards and people who make Garland Activewear!

It seems like everywhere we go we check the leotard rack {because you can’t have too many right} so Gabbi has a pretty good size collection from pretty expensive to very inexpensive and I’ve learned that not all leos are created equal so I honestly had no idea what to expect from Garland Activewear {since this was our first leotard from them} When Gabbi’s Under the Sea leotard arrived it was packaged so nicely and secure, the leo and matching scrunchie were neatly folded and placed in a clear plastic protective with a card to both Gabbi and me {the card was NOT a printed form card…it was hand written to us! AMAZING right!} When I took the Leotard out of the bag and felt the impeccable quality, I turned and told my husband “from now on the is our go to brand!” I’m not just saying that I was and still am serious!

Take a look at this beautiful leotard!

GAW3

My husband was equally impressed with the quality but as a Business Quality Analyst for the past 15 years the personalize card stood out more than anything to him and made us feel like Garland Activewear is a company we WANT to buy from!

And Gabbi…oh Gabbi! She gasped when she saw it and squealed the entire time she was getting it on! She looked at her self in the mirror and about lost it when she saw the mesh back because she loved it so much. She immediately asked if she could wear it…to the store, to play basketball with her brothers, skateboarding, in the sprinklers, to grandmas and to bed {yes that was all in the same breath and I’m sure I missed a few things!} Needless to say she was in love!

GAW4

The leotard fits her sleek which is exactly how she likes it. She can jump, roll and flip all around and it stays perfectly in place. You may think “duh of course it stays in place” but that isn’t always the case. Gabbi is very slim {she will be 7 in just a few weeks and wears 3t comfortably…she’s too tall for 3t but the waist fits perfect} Often she gets the “gymnastics wedgie” and a 6 she is not subtle about it 🙂 With her Garland Activewear leo it doesn’t happen because of the perfect cut. She can also wear regular panties with it, which if you are familiar with leotards then you know this is not always the case. She is comfortable wearing this leotard without shorts over it and both her daddy and I are too. Garland leos have wider crotches, and as a mother this is something that is very important to me, I want to make sure my daughter is covered and protected. She has a leo that has an extremely narrow crotch and she does not wear it outside the home and she prefers to wear shorts over it even in our own home. Although the crotch is wide it does not make red pressure marks in her thighs at all…I think Garland Activewear just has the magic sizing!

gaw6

The mesh back is comfortable and not scratchy. This was something I was a little worried about as Gabbi is EXTREMELY picky about fabrics, but she said it is very soft and “cozy”! As I mentioned above the quality is impeccable, there is the perfect amount of stretch and the stitching is beautiful. All the seams are sewn perfectly, this stood out to me because recently we purchased a fairly expensive leo for her and I was really disappointed in the bunchy stitching, it almost seemed like a 2nd quality, this is NOT the case with Garland Activewear!

GAW2The Scrunchie…I can’t forget that! It is made from the exact some material as the main part of her Under the Sea leo and has the perfect amount of stretch so it can be worn over a large bun or wrapped multiple time around a ponytail!

The best part! The beautiful Under the Sea Leotard with matching Scrunchie is $35.50

{Garland leos range from $27.50-$37.50 – they also do custom orders!}

Sizing: When purchasing from Garland Activewear I would recommend ordering your child’s clothing size for a sleek fit or one size bigger for a “room to grow” fit. This is my personal thoughts, if you have questions about sizing I would suggest getting in touch with Garland Customer service, I know they can help!

I have yet to wash it, I do hand wash and lay flat to dry all her leos {many have sparkles} but I see no reason for it to not wash and dry beautifully!

WHY WE LOVE GARLAND:

GAW1

Customer Service: The people at Garland are so friendly with great communication! Big shout out to Abbie and all her hard work. She is so sweet and extremely prompt in her responses!

The Pricing: As I mentioned above Garland has great quality couple that with great pricing and you have a match made in heaven! The quality is that of leotards that range from $70+!

The Website: Garland Activewear has a very easy to use website {this is not always the case} it’s easy to navigate and it’s always very easy to make quick order.

I think it goes without saying that we TRULY love this company and couldn’t be more happy with our Garland leos! They have new Ombre Leotards that we LOVE!
