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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โšพ๏ธ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ’กโค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸโšพ๏ธโค๏ธ

Ten years ago.

Today was the 10-year anniversary ofย our first date.ย 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. ๐Ÿ˜€โšพ๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฅฐโค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿบโšพ๏ธ๐Ÿนโค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โšพ๏ธ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

#gtfSpringTraining2015

Six years ago, we were enjoying some Spring Training baseball out in Arizona with my parents…

It was such a great trip! Hopefully, we’ll get to go to some more baseball games this summer. ๐Ÿ˜€โšพ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ

A world without sports.

One year ago during the the Mavs-Nuggets game on ESPN, the NBA decided to suspend their season while the Mavs game was still going…

And the next day, it was all kind of dominoes…

And just like that, we were plunged into a world without sports.

Tuesdays are grey too?

This morning looked just like yesterday morning, grey and rainy…

For dinner tonight, Genifer made this buffalo chicken pasta

Omigosh. It was soooo good. It was just the right amount of spicy. We had garlic bread with our buffalo chicken pasta. And I love garlic bread.

Then it was back for another walk. And it was still grey and rainy…

Good evening from Northside…

We watched a few more episodes of The Queen’s Gambit tonight.

On the iPad, I watched the Dodgers buy themselves a World Series title. I mean, they had the best team that money could buy. Spared no expense. In my opinion, this season and this World Series should always have an asterisk next to it. But that might be because I just really dislike the Dodgers. They’re like the Yankees of the West. Only without all the championships. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

Nice! You have a reward.

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon we ordered pizza from Taft’s Brewpourium. And we had accumulated some rewards…

Omigosh! Look at our Taft’s Brewpourium pizza feast…

I’m pretty sure Taft’s is my favorite pizza is all of Cincinnati. It’s so good.

Oscar was telling us it’s time to go on our evening walk…

And when we were walking the dogs, we noticed this…

That’s pretty darn creepy.

Good evening from Northside…

We hung this guy out on our back porch…

This afternoon I had to knock out a few things for work while I listened to Arsenal lose 1-0 to Leicester, and then we watched the Bengals come up short against the Browns.

This evening, we watched the Dodgers win the World Series. It’s a bummer. It would have been so neat for Tampa Bay teams to win the Stanley Cup and the World Series. This season will always have asterisk next to it for me. The Dodgers were the best team that money could buy over the course of a pandemic-shortened 60-game season. Personally, I liked it much better when the Dodgers would spend all that money year after year and and then come up short. That was great. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ•๐Ÿพโšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿˆโšพ๏ธโค๏ธ

Today felt like autumn.

The sky was very pretty this morning…

It’s still been pretty warm with temperature in the mid-to-upper 70s and low 80s. But today was a little bit cooler with a high of just 70ยบ…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made an Autumn Sausage Veggie & Apple Sheet Pan for dinner…

With Stove Top stuffing! I love Stove Top stuffing…

Thankfully, it’s finally Stove Top stuffing season again. Stuffing makes it feel like autumn. Did I mention I love stuffing?

Good evening from Northside…

And that was our Tuesday. We watched the the Rays go 3-0 up on the cheaters from Houston. And the Braves took a 2-0 lead over the Dodgers. A Rays versus Braves World Series wouldn’t be too bad. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โšพ๏ธโค๏ธ
