I got Tony 2 certificates for a Brew Adventure Tour for Christmas, and we finally got to use them. There were a few tours to choose from and Tony picked the tour in Grandview. We met at Smokehouse Brewery, and learned all about how the craft beer movement started in Columbus in the early 90’s. Then we were off to a newer, very small and hidden brewery, Sideswipe. The owner of Sideswipe gave us a tour and told us the story of how they got started. I love hearing people talk about what they’re passionate about. My favorite beer at Sideswipe (and the tour overall) was their Elegant Hoodlum Smoked Stout, which was smooth and delicious – perfect for a campfire drink. Next we went to Four String Brewery. At this stop we were pretty much on our own, and were given a few of their brews to try. Our last stop was at the Ohio Taproom. Here we sampled a few Ohio craft beers and even got some tiramisu. We had a great time and even met a few new friends along the way.
I’m not sure whose kid was sitting at our dinner table last night, but that kid was eating broccoli. I couldn’t believe it! I had to try my hardest not to make a big deal out of it. The only time Owen usually eats any vegetables is if it’s covered in cheese or disguised very well in something. Maybe when he bashed his head on the sink in daycare he forgot that he hates vegetables.
Owen always seems to be thirsty, usually for milk, but some of the time we can get away with water. When I went to pick him up from daycare on Tuesday his teacher was filling up his sippy at the small sinks that they have. He ran over to get it, tripped, and banged his head off the sink ledge. It made a horrible noise, and he immediately started to scream. Ugh! He was fine after he got his water and we put some ice on his head. I guess a bump a year isn’t bad.
