Our weekend was filled with summer events and birthday parties. We went to a birthday party Saturday and Sunday. One was a true summertime pool party with hot dogs, Doritos, Coca-cola and cupcakes on the menu. The other was a miniature-themed birthday with tiny tacos, a mini-fruit plate and baby Coronas. After the partying was over we checked on the bee hives, which were busy with activity. One hive was filled to the brim with honey, and the new hive was looking healthy. We're planning to go back into the hives this weekend to be sure they're doing well and to collect some honey.
