It's a fun time for sure.
I'm still trying to talk Lori into it, but we have a friend up there that lives very close and he's a craft brew drinker too. Free place to stay + a chance to show off the baby + beer? Win

Let us know if you talk Bob into it!

Thanks!

The dogs have been great with her. I'm really happy about how they're curious, but being so good around her.
I'm REALLY happy with how they're already becoming protective of her. It's almost as if they knew from day 1 that they had to watch and protect her.

He might as well just get this shirt done now.

On the heels of this weekends Michigan Brew Festival, i've got an itch to brew again. I've been seriously lacking the last year, only brewing 3 or 4 times.
Another AWESOME Michigan Festival, which some of the best weather I can remember ever having. Well represented once again too.

Lately i've been getting a lot of requests and now that Oberon is about to disappear till next spring, I think the timing it perfect.
With that said, I figured a daddy update is in order..
Here's been the last year:

Halloween:


Christmas:


Christmas was VERY good to her...


She hung out with mom and dad on St. Patty's day


Easter:


Then there was when she learned to stand up on her own (and now, walking. She's still grasping the whole "step, step, step" thing, but wow)


We learned she loved spaghetti:


And we learned that she doesn't like it when the spaghetti doesn't come with garlic bread...


And one of the highlights of the past year? Sitting down with my daughter, both in our Jets gear, watching football. I can't tell you how special this was for me.



Then, just some randoms.





I know, totally unrelated to homebrewing..
Now to get back on to related issues...
I'm at a point where she's old enough that my wife and I can start getting some "me time" and getting back to our own hobbies/crafts. For the past year, i've savored the small amounts i've had in the house, but more importantly, i've spent a lot of time missing brewing, which has made me realize how much I love it. After brewing hardcore for the past 6 years, then all of a sudden almost coming to a complete stop, is a bit of a shock.
For father's day, I got a Spike Brewing pot from my wife and I just picked up a new cooler for a mashtun. It's been calling me, begging for me to use it.
So use it, I will. This week i'm going to bang out a cream ale and an IPA and get back to my happy place.

We're actually looking for a new house right now. Every house I look at, one of the first thoughts I have is the back yard and "will I have enough room for a brew shed?"
Now it's just waiting till "Daddy's little girl" is old enough to become "Daddy's little brewing assistant".

And that's the past year!
