The family enjoyed a nice get away to the East coast to attend my cousin's wedding.  We flew into Philadelphia and first stopped in Dover, New Jersey to visit my wife's cousin who recently purchased a new home.  The next day was site-seeing and we stopped by Liberty Island and then the Liberty Science Museum.  As it was a bit chilly, we did not actually do the boat tour and see Ellis Island, but it was still pretty cool to take in the park.  I was really impressed with the science museum which had a lot of interactive exhibits.

From Liberty Park, we headed to Edison to New Jersey to visit another one of my wife's cousins.  Edison has an extremely large Indian population and my wife was able to do some shopping, while the children played.

After Edison it was down towards Atlantic City.  The wedding was held at the Carriage House in Galloway, New Jersey and we were staying at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club.  Both venues were amazing, but would have been much nicer in the summer time.  The Stockton Seaview was a great hotel with a game room, restaurant, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and other outdoor activities like tennis and basketball which we did not bother exploring.

It was a whirlwind trip and certainly felt like it as well.  It was great to be in attendance to personally wish Nina and Ajay all the best, but it would have been nicer to spend a few extra days milling around and catching up with extended family.  I did not even get a hoagie.  The food at the wedding was incredible.  I think the highlights were the appetizers provided by Five Chefs which included lamb lollipops, pani puri shooters, and dhai vera with edible spoons.
