Prepare for our Trip

We had a meeting, how we are to prepare for our trip

This is a "road" we will likely encounter on our trip
It's a lot harder then walking in the Rocky Mountains

Noordam Notables

Once a month I write a blog-post for our youth
post high school age in another blog:

A little bit of Spring Cleaning

I washed the carpet on the Stairs
That feels good!

Spawning Trout

 There is actual trout

 In this skinny creek

 The Peter saw 4 of them

I only saw this one

the creek is so shallow 
it didn't have enough water for the trout to swim

Sumery Evenings

 Another Campfire, when we were done 
we burned the dried out sticks from the flower beds

 The evenings are beautiful

 The sun setting on the Farm

 Listening to the frogs

Honking Geese flying over

Tails up ! Cows on Pasture

 The cows are so excited at 8AM

 They got to go outside

 On March 21

At noon they got up to go inside again
because it was to warm

Dutch Village, Holland MI

 I'm not sure but the tulips might be past prime
 by the time it's tulip festival
These were beautiful now

 Dutch "traditional clothing"

 Delft Blue, a nativity scene
and lots of other things

Beautiful crafted candles
even one with a windmill

Girls in bikini, March 17, unreal
