1st Grade Field Trip - Holland Dutch Village

Holland, MI is known for it's Dutch Heritage and their Dutch Village celebrating that Heritage.

A couple of weeks ago I was able to go with Isaac on his last field trip as a 1st grader to the
Holland Dutch Village.
We had a Blast!
I was so happy that I was able to go with him.

We saw Dutch dancers wearing big wooden shoes.

All of the sweet kids in Isaac's 1st grade class with his teacher Mrs. Arim.

There were so many fun Dutch props that the kids were able to play on.

There was also rides for the kids, Isaac rode on the swing ride 4 times in a row with his crazy friends.

Isaac is the little short boy in a red shirt, you got to love these!

They also showed us how to make Dutch cheese, then we all got to try a few samples.
Isaac and his friend loved the cheese, and wearing these hats.

They showed us how they make their Traditional Dutch Wooden Shoes. The kids tried on the wooden shoes and tried to walk in them. They really thought the big wooden shoes were pretty cool.

I had a fun time hanging out with Isaac and his friends, they are so funny when they are all together.
I love that Isaac wanted me to be at his field trip with him! Fun memories.
