I’ve started learning German (again) through DuoLingo on my phone. Archer was a little interested so I explained the idea of German being another language with different words for the same thing. I taught him “Wasser” which means “water.”

Anna says to Archer, “What is ‘Wasser’?”


“I mean, How do you say ‘Wasser’ in English?”

“Wasser in English”

“How do you say ‘Water’?”


“No, I mean ‘Water’ in German?

“Water in German”

“hmm. How do you say the German word for ‘Water’?”

“German word Water”

Anna leaves. I still can’t breathe. HAHAHA. Archer thoroughly enjoyed our reactions.

Today was the last day of boating, and the day before Ashton’s 30th birthday. We got a pretty good family photo of everyone on the boat before we took it out.

Mocha’s hair has started to get matted more and more often and it’s been so hot so we decided to get her shaved. She sure looks strange now.


We still love you Mocha.

Happy Birthday To Archer! He turned one, and his Momma threw him a huge birthday party with birthday cake (by Jami), a smash cake (by Lilly), an Easter Egg Hunt, a piñata (by Cindy), and lots of toys from friends and family. It’s been a long time since we’ve had so many people over at the house, and we had a great time.

Here’s too many pictures.

Ashton, Anna and Archer
