Honey Harvest

Did I ever mention that we are beekeepers?  Actually, my husband and 10 year old son are the official beekeepers.  I mostly enjoy watching all the activity out our back window.  My husband has always been a gardener and I think beekeeping fills his need to tinker outside and be productive.  It has been a 3 year learning process and a fun father son activity.  
Our friends and neighbors are intrigued, curious, and all asking for a jar of honey come harvest time. 
They harvested the honey the last weekend in July.  
I was the lucky photographer taking these pictures without a bee suit.  How many times do you think I heard "get closer, get closer, you've got to get a picture of this"?
I was more comfortable taking pictures of the finished product.
The boys were so proud of their fancy labels.  
And it's back to business for our little ladies.  A girl's work is never done......
