The 10-year anniversary of our very first date.

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

Just trying to get through the week.

Good morning from Northside…

Faithful Companion dropped off Svensk’s remains this morning…

Our home feels very empty without her with us. We miss her so much.

There was a little garter snake in our backyard this afternoon…

Thankfully the dogs didn’t notice it.

Good evening from Northside…

We had buffalo chicken pasta for dinner…

We’re just pretty ready for this week to be over. ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

Super pink moon.

And we were back at it on another Monday morning…

At least the sun’s out this morning. And that makes it a good morning from Northside…

We made it through another Monday…

Good evening from Northside…

We had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Wild Mushroom and Steak Risotto with broccolini and tomatoes…

It was another great meal. I could have eaten that risotto for the rest of the week. After dinner, we played in the backyard for a little while…

Tonight, there was a 99.4% full moon. It was the first of two super moons this year

This year weโ€™ll be treated to two super moons. The first was tonight and the second will be on May 26.

Super moons are bigger and brighter than your average full Moon. This super pink moon didn’t actually look super pink, or pink at all really. The moon was its usual color, just a very bright white as it moved across the sky!

I really like the super moons.๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐ŸŒ•โค๏ธ

Pandas but no Ice Bear.

Good morning from Northside…

Ice Bear must have been rescued from the claw machine…

The pandas and the trains were back in stock…

And there were these pandas too…

Good evening from Northside…

And there was a really, big almost full moon tonight…

It was another really nice Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿปโ€โ„๏ธ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŒ”โค๏ธ

Westside Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We went out to The Westside to sign our tax documents to be sent off to the tax people…

We’re getting a little money back from federal and state and broke even with Cincinnati.

While we were over there, we stopped at the grocery for some dog food…

And then we stopped at Jersey Mike’s Subs to get lunch to take home with us…

I had only ever eaten at Jersey Mike’s one other time a long time ago. I don’t even remember what I ordered. This time I got the #56 Big Kahuna and it was really good.

Other than that, we were pretty lazy. We’ve been watching Shadow and Bone on Netflix. It’s pretty good.

There were a couple of good photos in my Timehop today. First was Oscar riding around in the back of our Jetta…

And there was this photo proving that once there was indeed grass in our backyard…

And this photo of Mack all crashed out…

We made it through another week!

Good morning from Northside…

And we made it through another work week!

Good evening from Northside…

We saw this little ladybug in our backyard…

Do you remember this one?

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

Happy Foursquare Day!

Today was Foursquare Day (4.16)…

Good morning from Northside…

And time for post-walk treats…

After work, we tried a couple of beers from my parents trip out west…

The tangerine citrus ale was pretty good but the blueberry wheat was outstanding.

Good evening from Northside…

We ordered off the kids menu for dinner tonight…

It was pretty good start to the weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

Dang! Birthday quesadillas.

The sunrise was very pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

Our Edible Arrangement was delivered this afternoon…

We really like the Edible Arrangements.

And good evening from Northside…

It was nice enough this evening that we got to hang out in our backyard for a bit…

Then we ordered Dang! Quesadilla through DoorDash…

We tried a brisket quesadilla, kids (plain) quesadilla and a veggie quesadilla…

And they were all really tasty. We’ll definitely be ordering quesadillas again from Dang!

It turned out to be a pretty nice Tuesday. I hope Genifer had a good birthday.
