Mark Twain, Wine, and Beginning Beekeepers!

This weekend was a busy whirlwind! Friday I left bright and early to head to St. Louis, MO for a Honey and Wine tasting event that night. On my way there I stopped in Hannibal, MO to eat lunch and to visit some of the Mark Twain stuff. I had been there when I was a kid but that was many years ago! After the Honey/wine tasting I made it part way between St. Louis and Columbia to spend the night. Early Saturday I traveled on into Columbia to attend a Beginning beekeeping class. It lasted all day so I wasn't able to drive all the way home so I crashed at my cousins house about half way home! It was a crazy weekend that didn't last long enough. But I had fun at both places I went!

Here are several pictures from my weekend!
