Ma Bee Hive

i know i took more pictures of my family building our hives, but they must "bee" on my dad's phone. my mom, dad, the Greek and i spent from 5pm-9:15pm building our hives. 2 supers, which are the boxes, and 20 frames. there was a room full of us ham-ham-hammering away at these. my fingers were numb at the end, but i got ours done. now i need to paint them, and get my bees!

these are my empty frames, i am getting ready to wire them, then i add beeswax sheets to the wire and use a hot thing to melt the wire into the wax.
