with family (and a game!)

with grandparents
We have company:  my dad and his wife are visiting from New Mexico.

with grandparents
It may or may not be my imagination, but it seems to me that my children become maniacs when we have company.  Although they do look rather sweet in this photo.

My dad
This is my dad wearing my bee suit.

And now, how about a rousing game of “Find the Queen?”
(Because we spotted one of our queens for the first time today.)
Find the queen

Find the queen

Find the queen

Find the queen

Find the queen

I’ll chill with the bee photos after this, I promise.  But the queen! The queen!
