Hi, I'm in Iowa

Greetings from Iowa City, the home of the University of Iowa Hawkeyes, where every single mailbox is painted black and yellow and every old fat man wears a black and yellow t shirt with matching hat. I guess the upside is that they match, right?
Actually, Iowa City is a cool city ("city", is how it should be written, but whatev.) Lots of trails and lots of parks, a mall and a Target. What else do you need to pass two weeks? The following pics are of Rad in the swing at the park for the first time. He wasn't too sure at first but when I gave him the go-ahead, he was delighted. If only I could be so thrilled to swing.

Then there was Rad's Half Birthday party. Oh my, that was fun. We gave 'im a cupcake and let him go at it. He didn't understand at first but after I put some chocolate frosting in his mouth he got the idea. He ain't stupid. While he ate his cupcake, we danced to the Beatles Birthday song. The little dude thought that it was so funny to see mommie shakin' it.
