SEVEN GIRLS HEAD INTO THE DESERT: Last Stop, Balmorhea!
Okay, now it's my turn to share from my (Brandi) perspective).
As soon as we arrived in Balmorhea, we were ready for a dip! btw, the stretch of land between Marfa and Balmorhea is absolutely BEAUTIFUL.
Check out these Bronzed babes. Some guy came up to us with 6 kids and asked if we would all take a photo with them. Right after he said it was his turn to take a photo with us and posted it on Facebook.
Oh these two....perma giggles
Before it got dark we headed back to set up Camp.
Dinner and Drinks with the bugs. Jo pranked kelly so good with a fake fuzzy spider. She screamed so loud, I thought we'd for sure get kicked out. We were already warned by the park ranger once.
Happy Birthday Edica! We love you Mucho Mucho!!!
and this would be our Rape Whistles we mentioned in our packing list. They even have a compass on the end. How neat.
This is why we take our whistles to the bathroom.
Scary story time? Blair Witch? Kelly and I actually passed out around 1 am before the girls really got crazy and drove into town at the wee hours of night. I also missed their photo session with flashlights and ugly faces. I wanna see those photo's so bad!
The next morning I got up walked around and watched the sunrise. It's not everyday you get to see something so beautiful. I actually had a moment.
I was hoping with all the clicks of my camera someone else would wake up....
I waited til 8 am and announced that the pool was now open! Time to swim girls! This was when some movement started then stopped again.
Kelly and I headed down while the girls got some more beauty sleep, I think they had just gone to bed 2 hours prior. Party Animals...
We were pumped to have the pool and high dive to ourselves...until we realized JLo and Enrique's Tour guys were all parked on the side watching us jump.
This man (Rick) later becomes our friend. Kelly described him as a character straight out of Wayne's World. I recognized him instantly. He came up to talk to her when I went back to the tent to wake up all the sleepyheads.
Sister Sister Time!
Practicing our high dive moves!
Then it was Kelly's turn... she hasn't been off a diving board since the third grade. She was terrified. btw check out her rad tan lines :)
freaking out up there. YOU CAN DO IT!!!! I mean, really freaking out up there.
"Kelly Jump up into the Blue!!!!"
So proud of you seester! YOU DID IT! I believe you can fly!
WOOOOOO HOOOOOOO! look at that body!
pretending I'm dead in the water.
We do NOT want to leave.
f Of course Kelly forgot her towel...
Birthday girl soaking up the sun.
Such a cool feeling being in the desert with your girlfriends with nothing to do except just be.
I died when I saw this.
Belly Flop!!!!!!!! Psych!!!
We got this girl.
There's Rick! just hanging with the girls. He later wants to jump off the high dive with me and Jo because he was scared. Once we got there we realized he meant at the same time. Oh.
There they go!
All we got to say is Girl trips never fail me. This one is going down in HISTORY! Kelly and I still bust out laughing when we think about this weekend. We also keep sending each other texts from funny moments that happened. Too many good moments to handle. I mean 7 girls? & crazy girls with strong personalities. We did good. Everyone there was an important piece to this magical weekend. Yes I said Magical ugh. But it was! No other words to describe it.
You all Teenwitched it!
You made my marshmellow come out!
So what if I swerve all over the road, it's all in the name of Instagram!
UGH WHY ISN'T MY INSTAGRAM WORKING!?
Better maced than Raped.
Guys it's cool I got Bear Mace!
I have had to poo for an hour!
Thank You Indians!
DUDE take the rape whistle!
Maybe he has jumple cables?
When I gwoe up I'm gonna Dadopt a baby..
Don't you dare close your eyes. Hold your breath it gets better (these really are the words, kelly and I looked it up)
Double Devil Dick Canyon!
