Celebrating Diwali with Family and Friends 2017

Last weekend we celebrated the Indian festival of Diwali with a big party for our family and close friends. On the agenda for the evening was fun, friends, family, food, and sparklers. I think we covered it all on this wonderful evening.  Here are some photos of this lively dinner celebrating Diwali.
