This year my family rented a house in Buffalo and my sister and her family flew in so we could celebrate Christmas together and visit with extended family. Jess and I took a side trip to visit Chautauqua where I grew up. During the weekend we visited some favorite buffalo restaurants, ice skated, visited the falls and did a variety of other touring.

My family traveled to Los Angeles for Christmas this year to visit my sister and her husband at their apartment on the UC-Irvine campus. Cheryl just finished her first semester in the graduate program there.

After spending Christmas Day evening having our traditional Christmas get together we spent the next day visiting the state park where Dilip works and walking around the beaches of Laguna Beach.

On the 3rd day we went in to Los Angeles and visited the La Brea Tar Pits and walked around Hollywood Boulevard. In the evening we went to the Magic Castle. Our final day in southern California was spent in San Diego at the San Diego Zoo.
