I went to check up on the local bee hives again. This time, since there’s actual bees, I wore a beekeeper’s suit.

Also I finally understood how beekeepers separate out frames with honey from frames with larvae. Aside from the bee’s natural tendency to not put honey and larvae cells together, beekeepers put a grate such that the queen lives below the grate and lays eggs. Since the queen is to big too pass through the grate, the frames above the grate can only be honey. Neat!

I’d been attending a lot of Ricky and Morty events recently.

When the Rickmobile stopped in San Jose, I got up real early to check it out.

There was a massive line to buy merchandise, but luckly no line to take photos. I was surprised by the turnout.

One local bar also hosted a Rick and Morty viewing party for the season premier.

They had show inspired drinks and McNuggets with Mulan sauce.

Mulan Sauce

I don’t know if the sauce was the real deal, but it was incredibly popular among the guests. I only got to sample the dregs but it tasted like General Tso’s. I wasn’t impressed.

All these Rick and Morty themed events were fun. I’d definitely go to more, if they happen.

I went to a Giants game.

I’d never liked baseball very much, but this outing was actually super fun.

The stadium had delightful Americana foods like hot dogs, fries, and bubble tea.

The game was excitingly close. The Giants were down until Posey stepped up to hit a home run. The crowd went wild.

It was a charming summer event.

Harry and I went to a theme park recently, where we played tons of carnival games.

We had a lot of fun at this one particular game where we competed against other players by rolling balls into holes with higher point values.

Harry got really good at the game and ended up winning a fidget spinner.

Now he fidgets all the time. 😛
