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. 😀🌄⚾️🍺💡❤️

The Best Sunday.

It was a beautiful Sunday morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We headed down to The Banks for another Sunday Reds baseball game…

We stopped at Jefferson Social for a bite to eat before the game…

Before we headed into the ball park, we stopped for a DORA drink…

The Reds were playing Cleveland. The Reds could sweep the three game series with a win today…

We had standing room only tickets. So we just kind of wandered around the ballpark…

We’d watch a bit of the game from here and a bit from there…

The Reds lost to the Indians 6-3. But it was just amazing to be back at the ball park again…

We rode the streetcar up into Over-the-Rhine again…

We stopped for a post game drink at Sundry & Vice…

It’s one of Genifer’s favorites…

We walked up to Holiday Spirits…

And from there, we called it a day and hopped in an Uber home…

And then we took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

It was such a beautiful evening…

It was the best Sunday. 😀🌄🌮🍺⚾️🍹❤️

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. 😀⚾️🎙️❤️

Sunday funday.

We went grabbed an Uber down to The Banks this afternoon to go watch our Reds play Sunday afternoon baseball against the Cardinals. It was our fourth Reds game of the season. We were meeting up with Geri, Cleve, Alyssa and their baby, Pippa. When we down to The Banks, we found there was a whole festival going on…

It turns out it was the Cincy Celtic Fest. We hung out there for a second, and then we went into Great American Ball Park to watch our Reds. We had tickets up in the Fioptics District again. I think it’s our favorite section in the whole ballpark…

Usually, we don’t go up into the Fioptics District. We usually just watch the game from the Fioptics terraces. But today, we didn’t the upstairs. And that’s fine. It was pretty warm out and the upstairs had plenty of shade and a nice breeze…

And we got free pizza again

It was a good game. The Reds snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory to lose 5-4

I’m really at getting everyone together for group photos at things like this. For whatever reason, it’s just something I never really think about until everyone has gone their separate ways, and then it’s like, “I should have taken a group photo. Dang.” I’ll have to work on that.

After the game, we went back to Aster to wait for the Uber prices to drop…

And then we went home. It was another really fun Sunday. 😀🇮🇪⚾️🥃❤️

Reds baseball game #3.

Tonight, we went to our third Reds game of the season. Genifer’s financial advisor, Courtney and her boyfriend Mike were in Cincinnati for the evening. And they took us to out to GABP to see the Reds take on Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. I don’t think we’ve ever seen the Angels play before at GABP…

It was a beautiful night for baseball…

Mike got us tickets out in center field so we could have a good view of the Trout…

We never sat out in center field before. I was neat to get to see the ballpark from a new vantage point. But the setting sun was pretty brutal at the start of the game…

There he is…

The best player in all of baseball, Mike Trout…

The Reds hung five on the Angels in the first inning including a ball that Jose Peraza hit that looked like it was coming right towards us only to hit off the top of the center-field wall. I went back and watched the replay. And if you look really close you can see us…

Reds ace Luis Castillo was pitching for the Reds…

And he threw a gem. Luis Castillo struck out a career-best 13 batters through seven innings, and got us all free pizza!

And Mike Trout hit a bomb into the upper deck just above us…

And this one belonged to the Reds, 7-4

What a great night at GABP! A big thanks to Courtney and Mike for taking us out to the ballgame! It was pretty incredible to get to see Mike Trout and Luis Castillo do Mike trout and Luis Castillo things. 😀⚾️❤️
