Iowa, in general, is still very blaaaaah. Not nearly as bad as my visit that you may recall from past trips.
But this time I have baby cousins! And an Aunt and an Uncle and a Grandmother! It is very pleasant. It has been so long since I have been around the wee little people. Very refreshing.
Charles looks very similar to us tres hermanos as newborns. And I have almost called John by “Julian” a couple of times. That has got to be some suppressed memory of somewhere. There are other freaky coincidences that only my family members would get (“Sprinkles”, anyone?).
Hope this helps.
