An Olympic Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We mowed our backyard weeds grass this morning…

Genifer went out with a couple of her friends in Over-the-Rhine this afternoon. I dropped her off at Queen City Radio…

I hung out with dogs and watched Olympics all day. It was pretty awesome. And then we went on a walk…

Good evening from Northside…

When I went down into OtR to pick up Genifer, there was this crazy car behind me…

We watched the Minnesota United match draw their match against Vancouver. And then we watched more of the Olympics. We’ve really been enjoying the heck out of the games. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

#JJVECincy2021 Saturday.

Hello from Northside…

The clouds were looking a bit on the dark side this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning Oscar was given the nickname Captain Oskey. And Mack was dubbed Cowboy Mac ‘n Cheese. Mostly because the kids thought Mack’s spots make him look like a little cow.

We headed out to start our big fun Saturday with JJVE. We had to duck under some awnings for cover from rain showers twice once we were on our way. And then the sun was out…

We walked to Bonomini Bakery to get donuts for breakfast…

Food & Wine recently named Bonomini The Best Doughnut in Ohio

We ate our donuts over at Hoffner Park…

But we were still hungry so we had lunch at Taqueria 251

Their esquite is pretty incredible…

And their chilaquiles rojos were really good…

After lunch, we walked over to Urban Artifact

When we got home, all of us took the dogs around the block…

We stopped at the playgrounds up at the school on the top of the hill…

Good evening from Northside…

We played some hybrid soccer in our backyard, made a bunch of drawlings and had an NYPD Pizza party…

We discovered Rollino Lattes…

And we played a bunch of Uno…

It was a big day. The kids wore Mack out…

We had the most amazing Saturday. It was the best day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ₯°β€οΈ

We have guests!

It was a very pretty morning in Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

We saw a snail on our way home…

We haven’t seen very many snails lately…

And it was very pretty evening too…

Good evening from Northside…

All these odd markings have appeared on our street…

And this evening, JJVE from Boston arrived at our house by way of Michigan. They’re visiting us for the weekend…

We’re so excited to get to hang out all weekend with them.

This evening there was quite the thunderstorm…

As I was taking photos of the storm, lightning stuck and illuminated the entire street…

Did we mention we’re very excited for this weekend? πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒπŸ‘πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘§β›ˆοΈβ€οΈ

Happy Fourth of July!

Good morning from Northside…

People were shooting off a few firework at the end of our street…

And then there fireworks at both ends of our street…

And we could even see fireworks from our backyard…

The ones we saw in our backyard were my favorites. We’ve seen some really great firework displays from our house over the last five years…

And speaking of five years ago, this weekend we were just moving into our house…

We could hear the fireworks popping late into the night. And it was just a pretty lazy Fourth of July. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŽ†β€οΈ

And back to Gulow Street.

Good morning from Northside…

Instead of the annual Northside Fourth of July Parade, this year there were Fourth of July decoration destinations…

And one of neighbors at the end of our street was a decoration destination…

Good evening from Northside…

Later, we walked back down to Gulow Street

It was so good yesterday that we wanted to try more of items off their menu. Today, we both ordered their burger with chips…

Gulow Street’s burger were amazing. Everything we’ve had at Gulow Street has been so good that we ordered a couple more items to go…

We really like Gulow Street.

When we got home, we hung out in our backyard for a bit…

Later, we ate our Gulow Street takeaway…

Sesame noodles…

And the ham & butter sammich…

Both we just terrific.

And four years ago, we still had grass in our backyard…

What a great Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ”β€οΈ

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

Hello Kitty. HelloFresh.

Good morning from Northside…

Someone lost their Hello Kitty…

Good evening from Northside…

Hi Oscar!

We had another HelloFresh meal for dinner tonight. This one was Sweet Chili Pork Bowls with bell pepper & candied peanuts…

Ohmigosh. Every one of these meals has been amazing so far.

When we got upstairs, we remembered there was a 99.9% full moon tonight…

We’re ready for the weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ½οΈπŸŒ•β€οΈ

Another grey Monday.

Why does it seem like every Monday so overcast and grey?

Good morning from Northside…

It started raining again this morning…

This airplane was flying east to west which was weird because we see a lot of planes over Northside but they all fly north and south, not east and west. It was kind of odd…

Good evening from Northside…

Mondays are just so bleh, especially when they are all rainy and grey. But these photos from my Timehop made today a little sunnier…

πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈβ€οΈ

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.

πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

A Sunday pizza party!!

Our front yard is still looks pretty nice…

Good morning from Northside…

We went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for a Sun day pizza party…

We shared a house salad and a white pizza with chicken, cherry tomatoes and arugula…

Their special item today was mozzarella sticks…

Ohmigosh. Taft’s is so good. It’s one of our favorites…

And it was a beautiful Sunday evening so we hung out on our back patiio for a bit…

We can’t wait to keep working on our backyard. It’s going to be so awesome…

We had a really good Sunday.
