Boys and Girls

We got together for a barbecue with Blake's friend Justus and his parents. We love spending time with them and, needless to say, the boys are in seventh heaven.
There's something so fun about boys hanging out with their buddies and just being boys. They are so full of energy, laughter and boy antics. Love it!

And then there's the girl. Although there were several ear-piercing shrieks of delight from Kendall as she poked her head in and out of their dog door, most of her afternoon was spent crafting sushi.

It's hot as blazes here - 100 degrees to be exact. We braved the heat for a little bit tonight post bath, to read and water the plants.

Just in case you were wondering, our home security is provided by Brinks :) Nice!

The sure sign that summer is here. Red geraniums always remind me of home!

The Light Saber Show

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, welcome to dada's light saber show!

Nice skills...and nice boxers!

 This is the end of the show. And, what is the giant lump next to Kendall? It's the "wall" made of pillows and blankets that serves as storm and firework "protection."

Toddler Toes

This deserved to be blogged. Shortly after Aunt D introduced Kendall to nail polish, we gave her a little pedi at home. These are some pretty adorable little toes.

And, also that night...

Bath Times Gone By

I figure since I stopped blogging a year ago, it would be appropriate for me to post photos from a year ago...right?! I've always loved these pics of Blake and Kendall in the bath together. They loved it! Now their water adventures are reserved for the pool. They're not the only ones who miss the group bath.

St. Patty's Day

Meghan and Chris have been enjoying all that St. Patty's day has to offer for several years now. This year, we decided to join in the festivities and head to the parade in the Old Market. It was freezing, but fab. Everyone got a bit squirrely when the parade stopped (word has it some unfortunate irish dancer girl fell and got hurt - that's brutal, especially when you're wearing 3000 ringlets on your head...).

Little Kendall

During my blogging break, Kendall turned one, got baptized, started to walk and more. Sorry girlie, that I have not done a better job documenting.

That said, let me tell you a little bit about her now. If her personality today is any indication, she will grow up to be vivacious and driven with a delightful deep voice (okay, so her unique-sounding squeals are not so delightful on an airplane...). 

We had Kendall's 15-month appointment when my mom was in town a week ago (so Kendall was just over 15 months). She is a little thing - 17th percentile in height and a mere 3rd percentile in weight. She's power-packed though, often seen hauling things around our kitchen that seem to be bigger than she is. Think, 2-liter soda bottles.

She loves pushing cars and trucks along (complete with sound effects), pulling books/DVD's/clothes out of their proper places and flinging them onto the floor. Fun game! She's also taken with containers that have lids and can be stacked. Tupperware=hours of entertainment. 

She's a real talker with serious inflection and enthusiasm in her delivery. She says "hi!", "bye bye", "mama", "dada", "dee-dee" (Blakey & Binky), "ball", "bubba" (bubble), "ba-ba" a super cute "thank you". Kissing is one of her best talents. She loves to give them on the lips and will come at you with them smacking. Love it!

We're Back

Yeah, "the kahlers" have had quite the blogging hiatus. "Why?" Well, as I look around our kitchen and living room with dishes and laundry aplenty, it certainly wasn't because we were doing housework...
We're back with slightly older kiddos and plenty of good stories. While we were out, Kendall turned one and into a funny little girly and Blake kept us smiling with his curiosity, observations and rapid growth. 
I've got new gear and can finally load my pics onto the computer without going to sleep to find them loaded in the morning. Hallelujah...and thank you, Matt!
We hope all is well with you!!!

Here are some pics from the Summer Arts Festival this past weekend in downtown Omaha.

Kendall - loving the wagon and the camera

Blake - digging the waterfalls on the Gene Leahy Mall.
