And we have a few more rocks.

Good morning from Northside…

We got another delivery of rocks for our backyard early this afternoon…

Our last delivery of rocks was from Lowe’s. But they would only delivery 15 bags of rocks at a time. This time we ordered from Home Depot. They’d delivery as many bags of rocks as you’d like. We ordered 70 bags of pea gravel and 7 bags of river rocks…

And we moved them all from the sidewalk to our backyard in about 35 minutes…

We have a lot of pea gravel…

And there’s the rest of our river rocks down there…

We ended up moving the rocks during the hottest part of the day…

We get to choose three HelloFresh meals a week. And tonight, we had another HelloFresh meal for dinner. This one was Italian Pepper Steak Sandos with melty mozzarella & roasted potato wedges…

SANDOS! Gosh. We’re really loving these HelloFresh meal kits.

After dinner, the skies looked pretty ominous…

It started sprinkling on us while we were out on our walk…

Good evening from Northside…

Three years ago, I had my second hip surgery…

Four years ago, we were witness to the best soccer game I’ve ever seen live…

Five years ago, we were all moved into our house in Northside…

And we had our very first NYPD PIzza party

We can’t wait for the weekend so we can start dumping bags upon bags of pea gravel in our backyard. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ½οΈβ˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

Dropping off our best friend.

Good morning from Northside…

After work, we dropped Mack off at Best Friends Pet Hotel…

He’s been getting better and better in the car. We’re so proud of him.

Genifer dropped Oscar off at Grandma’s house earlier.

And then we were on our way to Louisville for the weekend…

We’re looking forward to our weekend road trip. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ—ΊοΈβ€οΈ

It’s summer, right?

Sunday was the first day of summer. But today was only 70Β° outside…

I’m not even going to lie, I would take 70Β° year-around if we could get it.

Good morning from Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we had anther meal from HelloFresh. This one was Salmon in a Creamy Dijon Chive Sauce with roasted potato wedges and lemony zucchini…

Our dinners from HelloFresh are just amazing. And this was another delicious meal.

And we had rainbow cake for dessert…

We had another good Tuesday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

This was in my Timehop today…

Fast forward to today and my photos on Google MapsΒ have a few more views…

Back in December, my contributions to Google Maps had 63 million views. And that’s pretty crazy to me.

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dad out there…

Good morning from Northside…

Today was the first day of summer. And there wasn’t any rain in the forecast today so we got to work on our backyard…

We dumped 15 bags of pea gravel and 15 bags of river rocks and 15 drainage rocks in our backyard this afternoon…

I think we’re going to need a lot more rocks.

We got cleaned up and headed over to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

Today, Taft’s had a specialty cheesesteak pizza for Father’s Day…

And it was delicious! Everything they do is amazing.

Good evening from Northside…

Two of the best words in all of sports… GAME. SEVEN.

We’re so happy with how our backyard is progressing. And any day that involved Taft’s pizza is a really good day. This was a really good Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ•πŸΎβ€οΈ

A rainy Saturday morning.

It was raining again this morning…

The waterfall from the neighbors gutters was in full effect…

Oscar did not want to go out in the rain…

Eventually, the rain stopped long enough to go on a quick walk…

Good morning from Northside…

We didn’t have a big puddle on the side of our house…

We put together this little entryway table…

We got sammiches from NYPD Pizza for lunch…

NYPD is so good. After we were done eating the sun came out….

Good evening from Northside….

Mack and Oscar were drinking out of the same water bowl again…

There was an almost a full moon tonight…

Today was also my 1100th Timehop in a row…

And there were photos of these two in my Timehop today…

We had a great Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈπŸ₯ͺ🐾❀️

There’s leftover ice cream cake?!

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar came in to our studio office to hang out with me while I was working…

And we made it through another Monday…

Good evening from Northside…

We had pesto prosciutto tortellini and garlic bread for dinner…

And we had leftover ice cream cake for dessert…

We went outside after dinner, we saw that this big tree limb had fallen into our yard…

And these photos of Milan showed up in my Timehop today…

We was such a handsome guy.

BLTs & more work on our yard.

It was kind of hazy this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning…

We stopped for coffee…

We added some landscape edging and decorative rock border to our front yard…

When we were finishing up in our front yard, a guy jogging by stopped to ask where we got our bricks. After chatting for a minute and as he started to walk away, he said, “Yeah, I gotta work on my front yard and try to get it up to this level.” It was such a nice thing to say. And it made us feel so proud of our front yard…

Hopefully, we van get our backyard up to the level of our front yard. We pulled all the grass and weeds out of the front third of our backyard…

I tried to dig out an old concrete post anchor next to our backyard path…

And that was clearly a mistake. I put it back in it’s hole and filled the hole back in…

Our next step will be adding rocks…

We went upstairs to take some showers. Hi Oscar…

We had BLTs for dinner….

BLTs with wedge fries…

Good evening from Northside…

Our front yard looks so nice…

We sat out on our back patio for a bit…

We watched the Louisville City thump Memphis 3-0 and listened to some music…

We had a really good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ₯ͺ❀️

Friday night thunderstorm.

There were a bunch of ants on the sidewalk…

Good morning from Northside…

Hi Oscar…

And, Hi Mack…

Mack must have been trying to hide his new hedgehog toy from Oscar by putting it in the bedroom trash can…

Good evening from Northside…

We ordered an elevated dog cot for our back patio…

Oscar wasn’t real sure about it at first…

But I think he likes it now…

It was a very pretty evening…

But while we were sitting on our back patio this evening, out of nowhere we could hear lots of thunder but we couldn’t see any lightning or even dark storm clouds…

It was exact opposite of when we were out on the deck in the Outer Banks, and there was all sorts of the lightning but no thunder. Both were kinda odd. But we had a really good Friday.

Another rainy day.

Guess what? It was overcast and raining again this morning…

It’s like we live in the Pacific Northwest or something…

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar was getting so fuzzy…

He got a haircut today at Petsmart and now he looks so handsome…

We made it through our Wednesday and then it was time to walk the dogs again.

This is Chloe…

She lives down the street from us…

Hi Chloe!

Good evening from Northside…

It looked like there was another storm rolling in…

It also looked like Mack was watching the soccer game…

Meanwhile, Oscar was just using the footrest of one of our dining room table benches as a pillow…

It doesn’t look like the most comfortable pillow. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈπŸΎβ€οΈ

Dogs are pretty funny.

Good morning from Northside…

Mack and Oscar were drinking out of the same water bowl at the same time again…

I made a cheesy chicken nugget wrap for lunch…

It started sprinkle on us while we were on our evening walk…

Good evening from Northside…

At the bottom of the stairs, the sounds of the cicadas was it’s loudest…

When we got home, Oscar started looking for a very specific dog toy…

He kept pulling out toys and setting them in a pile while he dug for the one he really wanted…

Apparently, he was looking for one of the Nylabones…

And then he never really chewed on it. Dogs are pretty funny. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈπŸΎβ€οΈ
