Dawson meet the.......BEES!

Tonight we had a BBQ with the family for MaryAnn's birthday. We had a really good time enjoying the food, family, the kids playing nicely together and especially the cool evening air UNTIL we heard a commotion on the grass. Next we see Uncle Paul carrying Dawson toward us with a blood curdling scream and the kids all yelling "HE GOT STUNG BY A BEE!" Yes it was Dawson's first bee sting. Luckily he only got stung once because he picked up part of the hive and some of it broke off. Apparently he had about 10 bees on him at once and Paul just knocked the hive out of his hands but not before 1 bee got to him. Dawson handled it like a champ. MaryAnn had a home remedy that I had never heard of. She had Aunt Karen mix a little meat tenderizer with water. She put it right on the site and it took away the sting literally within seconds, and of course Dawson was off and running within seconds as well. Nothing slows him down for long not even a little bee sting. A big THANX! to MaryAnn and Aunt Karen!

Poor Dawson, I remember when Riley was stung the other day out in the sand box. It was a wasp...nasty wasps, I hate those things! Anyway, he was stung 3 times on the bottom of his foot. And I have heard of using meat tenderizer, my grandma always did that. Hope Dawson doesn't encounter anymore bees!

Oh my goodness! That is so great that they were able to take away the sting so fast. Glad it was a fun party otherwise.

Poor Dawson, he sounds so boy though it is funny. I'll have to remember that meat tenderizer trick for the future. By the way, that pool looks SO fun! It looks like your summer is going full swing, I love it!

It looks like you are having a fun summer! Poor Dawson, my Kinley would say "serves that bee right now he's going to die for doing that." Hopefully he's doing better and those bees stay away.
