Good evening form Northside.

We got home and took the dogs on a walk, ate some chili and then the dogs wanted to go in the backyard. When I looked in our backyard, we saw the most incredible sunset…

It was one of the prettiest sunsets I think we’ve seen from our backyard. Good evening from Northside.Β πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Good evening from our backyard.

Later, we took the dogs out on a walk. I love the hill at the end of our street, especially at night. It’s so pretty…

Good evening from our backyard. And good evening from Northside.Β πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎβ€οΈ

Goodnight moon.

Goodnight moon. Seen from our back patio.Β πŸ˜€πŸŒ•β€οΈ

Our back patio.

After loading up on mosquito repellent, we hung out on our back patio this evening…

We love our back patio except for all the mosquitos.Β πŸ˜€πŸ‘β€οΈ

Pause for paws.

When we sit out on our back patio and Genifer goes inside for something, Oscar and Mack both immediately sit down and stare at the door…

And then she comes back and they go about their business. They’re pretty silly.Β πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

Hello praying mantis.

When we were sitting out on our back patio, a praying mantis appeared out of nowhere and started climbing up the side of my water bottle…

It was kinda crazy to have a praying mantis just wander by and say hello.Β πŸ˜€πŸ¦—β€οΈ

World Cup fever.

It’s official. We have World Cup fever. Today, we made our way to Second Place to watch the second half of the France versus Uruguay quarterfinal match…

We wanted France to win. But more than that, we wanted Second Place cheeseburgers….

I don’t know how widespread the knowledge is, but it’s an established fact that Second Place has some of the best cheeseburgers in Northside if not all of Cincinnati….

After France advanced 2-0, we pulled the Change of venue card and made our way to Higher Gravity for today’s other quarterfinal match, Brasil versus Belgium…

Genifer was cheering for Belgium and they won 2-1. She was very happy…

After the soccer was finished, we came home to hang out in our backyard with Mack…

And my very pretty wife…

It’s very sad that the World Cup in winding down. But it was a really, really great Friday.Β πŸ˜€βš½οΈπŸ†πŸ”πŸ»β€οΈ

Slow down & grill.

We grilled tonight…

We threw some burgers and chicken breasts on the grill…

And when the chickens were done, we added some cheddar brats…

And Genifer made some tots to go along with our grilling feast…

YUM! You can’t beat food off a charcoal grill. It always tastes amazing!Β πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŒ­πŸ”β€οΈ

Pause for paws.

Oscar was hanging out with us on our back patio after the FC Cincinnati match…

We got an electric lawnmower.

We bought a lawnmower from Amazon and it arrived today…

We got theΒ Earthwise 14-Inch Mulching Corded Electric Lawn Mower from Amazon along with a new 100 foot extension cord…

It actually did a really nice job of cutting the grass in our backyard. It was much faster than the modified weedwacker I was to using to trim the grass in the backyard. And the best part was, it was free! I used the points I had accumulated from my Amazon Visa and only had to pay for the shipping. Best $12 I’ve ever spent!Β πŸ˜€β€οΈ
