Honey Bees

Today we visited a honey bee research lab at the local university. This was by far one of my favorite trips that we have been on lately. We learned all about honey bees, and got to explore the many hives that they have on site. The kids were all fabulously still and quite when the hive was opened up, and got to see the bees up close. The best part was tasting fresh honey right out of the hive - as in move the bees aside, push through the comb, and fill your finger with golden honey still warm from the bees and the sun. YUM!! We all came home with some honey for our tea and toast, and not a single sting for anyone.

  1. Some of my kids are fascinated by bees and the honey making process. We are fortunate in that my nephew is a bee keeper, so they have been able to experience helping with that. Glad to hear that you were able to experience it too.
