We got to the hotel on Friday night. Since it was Mardi Gras season, I brought the girls a few treats for the season.
Then we headed to the boardwalk to meet up with some friends for dinner. Last year, we made a really strong group of family friends on our team Fever. Although we are all on different teams this year, we have kept up the friendship. I love these ladies and their girls!
Enter "Gators and Friends" - this place was awesome! It was not crowded, full of lots of animals, and you could touch/feed almost all of them!
The girls hit zero the first day-- which means they performed their routine with no mistakes. They looked great!
We had pizza at the hotel that night and then woke up the next day, ready to do it all over again! We had breakfast at Rhino Coffee again :)
It was a great trip. And as a crazy as the world of competitive cheer feels sometimes-- I can honestly say this sport has been a blessing to Afton and our family.
