Happy Fourth of July!

Good morning from Northside…

People were shooting off a few firework at the end of our street…

And then there fireworks at both ends of our street…

And we could even see fireworks from our backyard…

The ones we saw in our backyard were my favorites. We’ve seen some really great firework displays from our house over the last five years…

And speaking of five years ago, this weekend we were just moving into our house…

We could hear the fireworks popping late into the night. And it was just a pretty lazy Fourth of July. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿก๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŽ†โค๏ธ

And back to Gulow Street.

Good morning from Northside…

Instead of the annual Northside Fourth of July Parade, this year there were Fourth of July decoration destinations…

And one of neighbors at the end of our street was a decoration destination…

Good evening from Northside…

Later, we walked back down to Gulow Street

It was so good yesterday that we wanted to try more of items off their menu. Today, we both ordered their burger with chips…

Gulow Street’s burger were amazing. Everything we’ve had at Gulow Street has been so good that we ordered a couple more items to go…

We really like Gulow Street.

When we got home, we hung out in our backyard for a bit…

Later, we ate our Gulow Street takeaway…

Sesame noodles…

And the ham & butter sammich…

Both we just terrific.

And four years ago, we still had grass in our backyard…

What a great Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿก๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Independence Day morning from Northside…

Later this afternoon, we headed out to Geri’s house for a Fourth of July BBQ. On the way out to the burbs, we stopped at a Walgreens in West Chester. And inside Walgreens, we found a floor stand I designed for Venus featuring Four-Time World Surfing Champion & US Olympic hopeful, Carissa Moore

The floor stand really looked terrific. And the next wave of my Venus displays featuring Carissa Moore are going to be arriving in stores very soon. Be sure to keep an eye out for them. It’s always neat when you see your designs come to life out in the real world.ย Pretty neat stuff!

When we got to Geri’s house, we grilled up a whole bunch of goodness…

YUM! Stuff always tastes so good on the grill even though I left the burgers on the grill a little too long. You can’t beat a Fourth of July cookout.

And then we were back home. Good evening from Northside…

As we settled in for the evening, we got ready to watch some fireworks from our third-floor bedroom window WyzeCam. We’ve been hearing fireworks around us every night for the last two weeks. So we were expecting quite the show tonight…

And we weren’t disappointed…

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here are all the little videos I captured combined into one long video…

 

And then the fireworks we could see out of our windows were done. We could hear all sorts of fireworks going off all around our house until very early in the morning. We just couldn’t see them.

We hope everyone had a happy and safe Fourth of July. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโค๏ธ

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July! Happy birthday America! We walked through the one and only Northside Fourth of July Parade

We walked over to Northside Yacht Club for lunch…

NSYC was having an all-you-could-eat cookout with burgers and brats and fried chicken and all the delicious cookout sides. It was pretty amazing and so delicious…

And genifer tried one of Yacht Clubs’ Capri-Sun of Anarchy…

And then we walked over to Hoffner Park to check out the Rock ‘n Roll Carnival

We had one a UA Keypunch…

And had a slice of Chameleon cheese pizza…

It was a really good Northside Fourth of July! ‘MURICA! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโค๏ธ

Fourth of July fireworks.

Once again this year, our neighbors a few streets over from us shot off a bunch of Fourth of July fireworks which we got to enjoy by just looking out of third-floor bedroom window…

We decided to call this their grand finale even though we could still hear fireworks going off around our house until well after midnight…

I think it’s really neat when you don’t even have to leave your house to watch a pretty impressive display of Fourth of July fireworks.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ†โค๏ธ

Happy Fourth of July.

Happy Independence Day, everybody! We hope you have a wonderful and safe Fourth of July and get to see some fireworks too.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโค๏ธ

ps. Here’s some Fourth of July trivia from the Smithsonian.

Fourth of July.

Today was the annual Northside Fourth of July Parade. Last year, we skipped the parade because it was raining. And we were trying to get situated afterย just moving into our house. The weather this year wasmaybe a little on the warm side but pretty perfect. The parade was scheduled to step off from way up Hamilton Avenue at noon. So we walked down Pullan Avenue to try to stake out a spot streetside about fifteen minutes beforehand…

While we stood there waiting for ourย first glimpse of the parade, more and more people continued to line the sides of the street…

There was still no sign of the parade coming down the hill as we continued to bakeย in the hot noon sun…

So we started walking down Hamilton Avenue towards Hoffner Park…

Instead of standing with the masses, we walked down to Chase Avenue and proceeded over Northside Yacht Club. NSYC was having a Fourth of July USA beer & burger party with a Rhinegeist tap takeover

Genifer had the Burrito Mexican Lager. I had the Maracuja Gose with Passionfruit. And we shared in the legendary NSYC Burger awesomeness…

That was a really great burger! Afterwards, we walked over to Urban Artifact

And then we stopped back through Northside Rock n’ Roll Carnival for a little bit…

When we got home, we ordered a delicious NYPD Station House pizza…

When we got upstairs, we could hear fireworks all around us but we couldn’t see any…

But then we started to see some from our bedroom window…

We had a great Fourth of July enjoying all things Northside. Maybe we’ll watch the parade next year.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐Ÿบ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

One year ago today…

We watched a pretty spectacular fireworks display right from our front lawn…

I hope we get to see some more fireworks tonight!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ‡๐ŸŽ†โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Happy Fourth of July.

Fourth of July fireworks.

People a couple streets over from us were setting off fireworks most of the evening. Like really legit fireworks. It was pretty much a full blown Rozzi’s Reds Friday Night Fireworks display just spread out over a much longer amount of time. I think they were shooting off fireworks for around two hours. We enjoyed the show right from the comfort of our front porch…

And then they set off their grand finale

Very impressive. Afterwards our street was filled with smoke…

It was a pretty spectacular end to an amazing first weekend in Northside. ๐Ÿ™‚
