This picture was taken last summer when Matt, Angie, Stef and I went to visit Grandpa and Lee.
Grandpa definitely had a way with making you feel welcome... no matter who you were. I think Susan stated it perfectly when she said he made her kids feel like they were his own grand kids right from the beginning. Stef lost her last Grandparent 15 years ago and Grandpa made her feel like she was one of his own right from the start.
Every time we think of Grandpa a smile comes to our faces. From his infectious laughter to his eternal sense of optimism and his incredible faith we will always remember the last time we spoke... he said how proud he was of all us Kohl kids and how it made him feel when he talked with us and about us to other people.
We love you Grandpa and will miss you incredibly. Lee, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Thank you so much for everything you have given to our Grandpa and the way you have been able to fill in perfectly as our Grandma Lee.

In between flooring sessions we took the dogs to a Beagle Day outing. They had a great time meeting other beagles and owners. Ok, let me clarify, Oscar loved meeting the other beagles, Daisy loved meeting the owners. They were in total sensory overload. Toys, other dogs, people, lots of stuff to experience--they just didn't know where to start.
Here is Daisy, in heaven, with a little girl she met.
And here is Oscar with a friend he made (Oscar is on the left).
Needless to say they were very happy and very tired by the time we left...what a nice, quiet ride home.
Yes, that's Daisy walking over and getting attention from someone who was petting another dog... just butts her way in...
