Black Tie Dinner

Last night, Anjali and I attended a black tie charity dinner for the Roosters Foundation. This is a non-profit serving the needs of children’s charities in Orange County.

Our good friend Mohan sponsored a table and we all got to enjoy a night out and a fabulous dinner cooked specially for our table from the master chef at Tabu Grill in Laguna Beach.

Here are some pictures from the evening.

Here we are in our front yard before heading out for the evening.


Here are Mohan and Prachee.

Newport Beach

This week, Anjali took the kids to Newport Beach for the day. They went with their friends, Zach, Belle, Sam, Brandon, Ryan, Andrew and Adam.

The beach is about 20 minutes from our house and the waves are perfect for their favorite activity “Boogey boarding”. This is almost like surfing except with a foam board that is easier to learn!


This is Nikhil above Boogey Boarding.

Below is Vikram:


This is Annika after she caught a big wave that took her underwater!
