I’ve reached a new record.

I received notification today that my photos reached a new record on Google Maps

I’ve been working hard on my Google Maps contributions. I really like Google Maps. It’s just another way to share our experiences and especially another place to share all the photos I take of every dang little thing every day. It’s pretty neat. I like it.

And that’s really why I like Google Maps Local Guides! #LetsGuide 😀🗺📷❤

Topgolf West Chester.

Early this afternoon, we drove out to the suburbs to check out Topgolf West Chester

I haven’t swung a golf club in a really long time…

So this should be interesting…

Topgolf is pretty amazing and has a full-service bar and restaurant…

We shared a hitting bay with Cleve and Alyssa…

They have a whole bunch of different games you can play. We just played their signature Topgolf game where you score points by hitting your golf ball into any target assigned using Topgolf’s microchip technology…

The more accurate your shot and the farther the distance, the more points you earn…

It was really fun. During a game, each person got to hit 20 balls. While we were playing, we also ate lunch. We had some cheese curds…

Genifer had this turkey wrap…

And I had this short rib grilled cheeses…

Our lunch was delicious. And Topgolf is so much funIt’s a little on the pricey side but still a whole bunch of fun. We’ll definitely be back very soon for more Topgolf. 😀⛳️❤️

I wonder where this is.

Look at this amazing photo that showed up on our TV while our Google Chromecast was in Ambient Mode…

It must be a subway station or something but it’s just incredible. I wish I knew where it was so I could learn more about it. Any ideas? 😀📷❤️

Little monsters live here.

We saw this guy today at Home Goods…

Also, it’s August 29th and Halloween stuff is out in stores. 😀👹🎃❤️

One year ago…

One year ago today, I had my six-week post-op check-up. I still think it’s pretty crazy that all this stuff is in my body. Modern medicine is just nuts…

A year later, and everything feels really good. I don’t think I’m going to be running any marathons any time soon. But I very rarely have any sort of discomfort. I think I’ve kind of figured out what the new normal is for me now. I hope my hips stay feeling good like this for a long time to come. 😀🏥❤️

It was a rainy morning.

It was a rainy morning in downtown. 😀🌧️☂️❤️

FC Cincinnati versus Columbus Crew.

So here we are. The inaugural MLS Hell is Real derby between our FC Cincinnati and Columbus Crew. The two teams first met back in 2017 during FC|C’s magical US Open Cup run when Djiby headed Cincy to a 1-0 victory. The teams met for the first time in MLS play two weeks ago and played to a 2-2 draw. Fast forward to today and it’s the first MLS edition of the Hell is Real derby match at Nippert Stadium…

And here we go…

And FC Cincinnati was down 3-0 after just fifteen minutes…

Someone must have tried really hard to get drunk on some free samples of warm, non-alcoholic Heineken 0.0, or they just really liked the taste…

The final score was 3-1 to the Crew. Apparently, Ohio is black and gold. 😐⚽️❤️

73,000 check-ins!

I hit 73,000 check-ins on my Swarm this morning…

I still really like my check-ins on Swarm! 😀⭐️❤️

Pause for paws.

Oscar’s new favorite place to hang out is under our dining room table…

It’s like his special secret fort of something…

And this one popped up in my Timehop

He’s so handsome! 😀🐾🦕❤️

Good morning from Northside.

When we were walking the dogs this morning, we saw this rainbow…

Rainbows are awesome. 😀🌈❤️
