Staycation Take 1

We started Staycation Day 1 with a trip to and tour through Lambeau Field. It was a grim, rainy day, but it didn't seem to dampen our spirits. And thankfully, it stopped raining in time for us to go outside.

Being near the field was pretty cool.

But walking the players' tunnel to get there was the ultimate in coolness.

And we, of course, Lambeau Leaped after a Pro Shop visit. (Shiny, new hat)

Then we headed north to see Grandma Lou and the bees. (Band name?) With my trusted helper at my side, we smoked 'em good.

Laughed about the hair in our eyes.

And smiled at the beautiful frames of honey. (Amelia has one complete honey super full, although very little of it is capped yet. Beatrix just got her first honey super, but the hive looked tremendously healthy and happy.) I ordered my honey extractor in anticipation of the sweet stuff this fall, so things are getting serious!

Only one day in the books, but my mission to make this staycation a good one is definitely on the right path!
