Spring is here...........Finally

After months of cold with little or no snow for skiing, the Armstrong family is happy to welcome the arrival of spring. I'm usually sad to see the skiing season end but I've had enough of this seasons splitting storm systems and over-predicted snow totals. Even the few "good" days of powder skiing I had this year were ruined by the powder hungry crowds. Crowds at Solitude, who knew.

To start this spring off right, we planted Broccoli starters and sowed lettuce/spinach seed on March 6. The seed is coming up now and should provide more lettuce than we can eat in three weeks. I hope we are eating broccoli within the next 4 weeks too.

I wrangled my farm helpers into posing for some pictures by our new garden.


Hey look at me, I can ruin your picture

Puppy Love

I'm not sure if Sean and Gracie are a blessing or a curse for Duke. Sarah and I hardly give him any attention now that we have the kids but at the same time they give him lots of love. Lucky for everyone, Duke puts up with the kids constantly jumping on him, pulling his ears and poking his eyes without biting them.

Trend Setter

I'm not sure who she gets her fashion sense from but this look is probably gonna sweep across the country.

I talk ALOT

Anyone that knows Sean, realizes his ability to talk endlessly which is great and quite entertaining for most people. But I think he may have some competition around the Armstrong house. Though she can only be understood about 75% of the time, Gracie is giving him a run for his money.

Talkative and Cute. Notice any resemblance?
