Yesterday was our middle son's 27th birthday. We had a special dinner for Andrew on Sunday, complete with his favorite, strawberry rhubarb pie. Our gift to him was a hammock. But his gift to himself came Monday night, and this is how he spent his birthday:
Andrew has wanted bees for a long time. He and his wife bought a house in town, so he asked if he could have keep a hive at our house. Well, of course!
He and his younger brother, Eric, spent the afternoon getting the bees settled in their new home.
For a short time the bees swarmed in a nearby tree, but the boys took care of that. Then they sat near the hive and watched them and talked. It was a great day for Andrew and guess what? No one got stung!
Happy Birthday, Andrew! (The bee whisperer)
