My parents have recently started urban beekeeping. My youngest son thought it was cool and has really gotten into it. I thought if he can do it I can do it too. Although I appreciate bees (from a distance!), I am not anxious to go stick my person in their area and start meddling. But I did.

Then Finn suited up and helped.
It was really actually pretty cool. I thought I would be terrified, but once I got up there I realized they werent interested in attacking and stinging. They pretty much ignored us.
After we were done with the bees we sat out on the back patio and enjoyed the weather. Their cat Oliver was outside with us roaming around. This boy is my buddy.
Towards later afternoon the bluebirds and chickadees started showing off.
