    Was fun at my house today, I painted them and then my daughter Karina and her husband Kenny did the front art work keeping the hives all looking different :Dancing: gotta love it when the hole family's got a part in beekeeping. :thumbsup:

    Holy Moly Zoo: :eek:
    First you got a wife that helps with swarm catches and cut-outs, and now you show us your daughter and her husband painting your boxes for you?
    What's next, neighbours showing up offering to help? :shock: :lol: :thumbsup:

    Great pics of your family! Nothing like getting the whole family involved. My wife bought some stencil to 'spice-up' the boxes I've been building.
    Everyone at my house is gone for the night, so I've been cutting and ripping 1X8's for medium supers all afternoon. Eating dinner in front of the computer for now and then its downstairs into the basement to put them all together. :)

    I built 7 mediums last night. They're ready for paint and primer, and then the wife's finishing touches :)
