pirate's cove

so this last weekend.. we were spoiled to death. we went with platinum (grant's work) to pirate's cove. you can see the post below for a better description of what it is, but basically it's a 30 million dollar private pirate themed resort. the cast of pirates of the caribbean have even stayed there. It included 3 swimming pools, two water slides, rope swing, multiple hot tubs, 20 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, home theatre, saunas, indoor basketball and racquetball courts and even an ice cream and slushy machine. it was absolutely amazing. i felt like we were living inside a mini disneyland or something. it was so fun being with all of our friends. all the boys were in heaven beating themselves up by cramming as many of them as possible down the water slides, jumping off pirate ships at all different heights and playing racquetball till the break of dawn. literally. we spent our first night at excalibur (kind of like this) where we enjoyed the pepsi just like we did two summers ago at medieval times. friday night we were fortunate enough to see "O" Cirque Du Soleil.... which was the most fascinating show i've ever seen. It just blew my mind. even the trailer is worth your time. grant had his nasty mustache for half the time. but then shaved it off and all the sudden started getting more kisses from me. oh and on the way home we stopped at hoover dam. the whole weekend was just perfect. so nice to have a break.

oh hello miss. Cute pictures. You definitely shouldn't have posted the pic of me where I was half way in the middle of a laugh and my face is HUGE--you were SUPPOSED to delete that! =) I hope there are some cuter pics of me, or maybe I just looked horrible the whole weekend. ha ha ha

{Layla} said...

Yes, please let me know when and where you post the pics so I can do a little blogging myself. And feel free to crop me out of any pictures I look sick in, like the one above! ;)

I've heard of that place! One of the Del Sol corporate guys visited Grand Cayman for business and randomly brought it up one night when we had him over for dinner. Before we knew it we were all on our bed (lived in a tiny, tiny apartment) looking at photos online of that awesome place. It looks like so much fun, I'm envious!

Maybe since Grant shaved his mustache David will. He even had it in our Christmas photos we took this weekend! Whoever invented mustache November sucks.

By the way, your hair looks adorable in all these pictures.

Jeff and Kayci Bitton said...

first of all, this past weekend was so fun. i haven't felt that relaxed in forever. secondly, i just watched your two-year video and LOVED it so much. it really made me smile. i feel so thankful to have been there for a lot of those moments (i mean not THERE there, but you know what i mean. i was around, somewhere). much love to you brittany barnes.

Jess and Matt said...

Oh, that just looks like the BEST time. I so wish we could do something like that! Your pictures are awesome. Just like everyone else said, you are so beautiful Brittany, in every way. Oh, and I want my blog to look like yours.

Reimstar said...

Oh by the way, your camera is amazing! Maybe a little too amazing, it shows all my flaws :(

{Layla} said...

Thank you madam. You sure are lovely to load those those pics on flikr for me. Do you have any more of us gals? I thought Grant took like a million? If you have a couple more of those for me to choose from that would be fab. Also any pics of my hubby with the guys by chance? I am thinking we got a pic of a bunch of us girls @ the bbq but maybe that was on someone else's camera. Also I love the waterslide pics, I want to make a photo montage thing of them since it was so darn funny. thank you, thank you, thank you. much love.

{Layla} said...

Ohhh sorry for so many comments BUT I remember some fab pictures you took of Austin jumping off the masts. You had a couple of great shots of him flipping and flying through the air. Could you load those babies on flikr for me? You're the best.

...i stopped by your place to see if you wanted to walk to planted earth with me (in the freezing cold), but it looks like you were out having a grand ol' time in the warmth!

Do you realize you drove past our place if you were at the dam!!! Crazy! Too bad I didn't know you were coming! I would've waved!!
