Last year, my family took on a new hobby, beekeeping. My kids are all enamored with our little honey bees and were sad to hear that we would not be checking on them all winter long. This hat was designed as an homage to my bee-loving kiddos (all of whom sport their hats with pride, although one refused to photographed in his).
