A huge swarm of bees kept a Snoqualmie family indoors on Sunday.

"While my wife, 3-year-old daughter and 11-month-old son were out in our yard today (Saturday) enjoying the sun, my 3-year-old was fascinated with 'all of the bees,'" said Rick Collins.

"Turns out it was a swarm of honey bees looking for a new home, they decided the tree in our yard was a good fit," said Collins.

Collins said he called a wrangler to come and gather up the bees but by the time the beekeeper got there the bees had moved on.
