pass the dutchie

Sluiter Nation is in Holland, Michigan.

Holland, Michigan has an annual Tulip Festival.

I explained the parades and treats last year.

I also blogged about getting Eddie his first pair of wooden shoes and posing in his Dutch costume.

(If you skipped over those links?  Your loss.  You will die of cute if you click them, though.  Just sayin’.)

Well it’s Tulip Time again.

And you bet we have been to the festivities already!

Tuesday night we ventured downtown as a family to watch Cort’s sister, MacKenzie, Dutch Dance.


not so sure about auntie Kenz in her Dutch costume

my friend, Kelli, is in this Dutch dance group too!

boo to the dumb pole in this picture.

Eddie and I went back Wednesday with my mom and my nephew, Jack to watch the Volks Parade.

Eddie wore his costume.


so it's a little big. That costume was worn by both my brothers and my nephew. and now Eddie.


he just refused the wooden shoes and hat

We had so much fun that the camera didn’t come out during the actual parade.  Sorry.

We hope to go back one last time as a family to eat more junk see the tulips one last time with our little Dutch boy in his little Dutchie.
