West Coast Vacation & Wedding

What a month! Amisha and John’s wedding took place in Seattle and from there we went to Disneyland and then ended our vacation in Newport Beach, CA. It was great to see aunts and uncles we have not seen in years.

The boys had a great time at Disney although it was quite exhausting! Manish had a stomach bug and Hannah got a sinus infection so that made things a bit more stressful. But, we got over it and then spent a few days at Newport Beach, CA (this was the best part)!

The images below are a few favorites from our vacation.

2014_07_fam_08.jpgWedding time! Amisha and John are thrilled. The boys are supposed to be ‘security’ but are more interested in watching a movie.
