Byrdnest Weekend

We spent the weekend at the Byrdnest with my mom and Fred. Adam had a fishing weekend planned with his friend Dave and planned on staying at the Lion's Paw, but they ended up staying at the Byrdnest too!

Waiting for Daddy and Dave to pull up...

On Saturday morning, we went out to check the containment booms that have been set out....this first set starts at the St. Joe Point and then comes back to the beach at the Gulf & Bay county lines. Thank goodness the Byrdnest is protected. Although, I'm sure they won't do much help when the first tropical storm hits! :(

Camp reading his favorite book, Trucks.

Mama Byrd, Papa (that's his new name), Camp and I headed out to the point. It was the perfect weather for boating!

Camp loved looking over the side of the boat!

Once we got to the point, we anchored the boat and got out to swim. The water was BREATHTAKING, just gorgeous! We felt like we were in the Caribbean on a deserted island. There was no one around us! It really made me sick to my stomach thinking that this beach might not look like this in a few weeks.... :(


Fred went up to the dunes to get this picture....he was so cute trying to get the perfect picture! :)


Camper fell asleep just like this....in my arms and in the water! :) He had his uh oh and his Mama and that's all he needed!!

On our way back in we saw lots of activity at the booms.

Please, oh please contain that oil!! Or better yet, oil, please don't come anywhere near us!

On Saturday night, we went to dinner at Dockside Cafe. Camper stayed at home with Mama Byrd & Papa!

Trip ended up joining us at the beach too! Dave, Adam, Fred, & Trip had a successful fishing trip on Sunday! The third fish from the left is called a Lane Snapper....when I arrived at the dock to take pictures, Adam told me that it was the prettiest fish in the whole bunch! :) Haha...



My mom brought Chandler's portable DVD player so Camp could watch his movies. He looks like such a big boy!


The boys of the Byrd/Webb/Gunter crew
My mom wanted a pic of her favorite boys!
I love Adam in navy!

We usually get a picture of Camp in front of this every time we visit!


Here's Camp at his first trip to the Byrdnest in December 2008. He was only 3 months old!!


 Chandler is at camp in NC for three weeks or else she would have joined in on the fun too! We had such a great time! Adam and I are so lucky to have two beach houses to choose from and two wonderful families to share them with!

The day out at the point was perfect! You were able to capture how beautiful the water was that day. Camp is such a big helper boy... helping me unload the dishwasher and helping Papa carry the umbrella.
