Memorial Day Weekend Camping at Burlington Koa

Yep this is our Motorhome.  We are trying the "camping" thing now since it is pretty expensive to fly 6 people anywhere!  We left on our very first camping trip as a family of 6 in the motorhome on Friday after the kids got out of school.  We didn't have to go too far to get to the Burlington Koa.

Lane Dykstra, Brody Bouwman, Gannon and Trey Bosman making Mud balls and Mud pies!

Some more kids joined in the muddy fun... Gunnar, Annie Zylstra, and Libby Bouwman

Everyone buckled in tired and ready to head home!

It was Grant's birthday the day we got there... so that night he got a little treat!

Gunnar, Tyra and Daddy enjoying the hot tub

All 21 kids that went along ( except for Macy Bouwman... she was taking a nap)!  Six  families went along... Tom and Bridgett Zylstra and their two kids, Corey and Julie Feenstra and their 4 kids, Monty and Shawna Bosman and their 3 kids, Chris and Jess Bouwman and their 4 kids, Jeff and Shannon Dykstra and their 4 kids and Us and our 4 kids.  It was a really fun group and all the kids got a long great!  A big thanks to the little girls that were there who played with Gunnar, and also to the girls who "babysat" Tyra taking her for walks in the stroller!  We played LOTS of baseball, a little basketball, some track ball, paddle ball, did some swimming, made some "mud" castles, roasted smores, and stayed up late!  Our first camping trip was lots of fun!  We didn't have any rain, but the campground was a little muddy... so just hoping our next trips will be a bit cleaner... I finally got done washing everything today!
We knew our cat Silver was pregnant... we thought she was getting close to having babies... so the first thing we checked when we got home was the box we left in the garage for her.  We were so SURPRISED to find 6 baby kittens all healthy and cute and Silver being a good mom for being only 9 months old herself!  If anyone wants a kitten let me know... this picture makes them look really dark... but 4 of them are mostly grey with stripy markings, one is calico, and one looks pretty dark... maybe black.  They are ADORABLE!  Let me know!
