Sunday funday.

We ran over to the grocery store early this morning even before we walked the dogs…

And then we stopped for Biggby Coffee…

When we got home, we took the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from morning…

We headed down to The Banks to go to our fourth Reds baseball game of the season…

We got a DORA drink before heading into the ballpark…

Welcome to the Great American Ball park…

Our tickets were in our favorite section of the ballpark, The Fioptics District…

Apparently, Fountain Square has a new stage…

We walked up to Queen City Radio in OtR to see if they had their amazing Whip burgers. They did not. So we hopped in an Uber and stopped for a drink at Northside Tavern…

And then we came home to hang out in our backyard for a bit with our new little lights…

And while we were sitting out on our patio, we watched the Grizzlies win game one of their first round best of seven against the Utah Jazz.

It was a terrific Sunday. 😀🌄⚾️🍺💡❤️

Timehopping.

Six years ago was the infamous Power Stack fire game at GABP…

Milan was snug as a bug in a rug…

And do you remember Fork Heart Knife that used to be up on Main Street in OtR?

Their frittata and those spiced potatoes were just amazing…

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😀🦕⚾️❤️

A quick trip to GABP.

Good morning from Northside…

We had to run a couple of errands this morning, and we picked up McDonald’s on the way home. We literally haven’t had McDonald’s in years…

And now we can go another five or so years before we have it again.

Good evening from Northside…

Today was the 10-year anniversary of our first date. We went to a Reds game. Tonight, the Reds actually had a home game against the Cubs. So we went down to GABP to celebrate where it all started ten years ago…

Ten years ago, we sat down the first baseline. We were waited too long to get tickets for today’s game, and got tickets up in the upper deck down the third baseline, where we used to sit back when we had our season tickets…

The Reds just recently increased capacity at GABP from 30% to 40%. The seating set-up was really weird. If we would have sat in our assigned seats, we would have been sitting right in front of people in the row behind us. We didn’t understand how that was maintaining our six feet of social distancing. It kind of made us uncomfortable, so we ventured off to find somewhere to stand to watch the game. Hopefully, someplace with some sun because it was kinda chilly at he ballpark tonight…

We only stayed at the game for a few innings. We were cold and we were leaving in the morning on our road trip. We packed it in so we could go home to finish packing and hang out with Mack and Oscar…

It was incredible to be back at GABP. It was already our third Reds game of the season…

And now we’re all packed for our road trip tomorrow…

We’re excited to start our adventure. 😀🌄🍔🍟⚾️❤️

Ten years ago.

Today was the 10-year anniversary of our first date. We went to a Reds game…

And then we went to listen to a couple of bands at a bar that no longer exists…

It was a really amazing night. And the rest, as they say, is history. 😀⚾🎶😍🥰❤️

The world almost felt normal today.

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we hopped in an Uber to get downtown to go to our first Reds baseball is what seems like forever. Before the game, we stopped at the relatively new DORA (Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area) in The Banks…

We stopped at Fishbowl at The Banks to share a little fishbowl…

And then we headed into Great American Ball Park…

It felt so good to be back home…

BARGE!

And this one belongs to the Reds! They whooped the Cards 12-1.

We found our Reds All-Star Legacy brick

We rode the Streetcar up into OtR. We walked to The Pony to share their incredible Chicken Fingers and then we were going to walk to Mecca for a drink or two but they don’t open until six. So we wandered around OtR for a bit…

And ended up at Holiday Spirits for a drink…

And then we hopped in an Uber and headed for home.

Good evening from Northside…

And it was an incredible day too. The world almost felt normal today. We’ve missed baseball so much. Especially Sunday baseball. 😀🌄⚾️🐔🍻❤️

Watching baseball one year ago.

One year ago today, we got to see the best player in baseball, Mike Trout of the Angels play baseball at GABP with our friends…

And we saw Mike Trout go yard…

And it was an awesome night. I miss going to Reds baseball games so much. Thanks for all the wonderful memories, Timehop. 😀🦕⚾️❤️

Hard to believe, it was nine years ago.

Nine years ago today, my parents, Genifer and I got to see Sir Paul McCartney perform live in concert at Great American Ball Park during his On the Run tour…

It was an incredible show! Just beyond words good. And we had a perfect vantage point of the show from our seats…

Click to see all our videos from Paul McCartney’s On the Run show at GABP. 😀🎶❤️

Timehopping.

Five years ago today was the MLB All-Star Game live from Great American Ballpark in beautiful downtown Cincinnati…

Five years on and it’s still one of the most incredible sporting events I’ve ever attended. But it wasn’t just the All-Star Game, it was all the build-up to the game, all the months of excitement around Cincinnati and all the events of All-Star Week that made it such a memorable event. That, and getting to snap a photo of these guys…

We’ve done some pretty incredible stuff in Cincinnati.

Thanks for all the wonderful memories, Timehop. 😀🦕⚾️❤️

Timehopping.

It’s April 16th! Happy Foursquare Day! April 16th? 4.16… Four-squared. Get it?

Three years ago, we were at our third Reds baseball game of the season. We stopped before the game to find our Reds All-Star Legacy brick again…

While we were still sitting in the down the third place line, one of the Brewers hit a line drive foul ball that ricocheted off some seats, bounced off the nacho concession stand behind us, landed a few rows behind us and rolled under the seats and Genifer reached over to pick it up in the row behind us. And after 200+ Reds games, we finally had our first foul ball…

Thanks for all the really wonderful memories, Timehop. 😀⚾️❤️

The final Reds home game.

Genifer and I took the day off work to go to the final Reds home game of the season…

Today, Hall of Fame announcer Marty Brennaman was wrapping up his 46-year run as the radio voice of the Cincinnati Reds…

unnamed

One of my favorite views in the whole world…

The Reds gave away AM-FM Farwell Marty radios so everyone at the ballpark could listen to Marty call his final game for the Reds…

Aristides Aquino…

We went on a bit of a wander around the ballpark…

All was quiet in the Reds bullpen…

And ended up back upstairs just in time to see the Reds get everyone free pizza…

Eugenio Suarez came in to pinch-hit…

And unfortunately for Marty, this one did not belong to the Reds. The Reds lost 5-3.

Someone forgot to pick up their helmet nachos…

It was another great season of Reds baseball in Cincinnati. We made it to five Reds games this season. Next season, we’re already planning on attending many more baseball games. We just enjoy them so much more than the soccer games. 😀⚾️🎙️❤️
