Back from Visit with Family

Narayan at the Sacramento Zoo

Well, I made it back from my visit to Sacramento, California. I just got home this evening a day late because of mechanical problems with the airplane. Better late then never eh? (Who likes these kind of delays though!)

My weekend visit was a whirlwind trip. Me and Narayan were together the whole time having fun and visiting with all of our family that lives in the area and doing all kinds of things.

It was especially great having some time spend with my Sisters Colleen and Stacie. My father was married before he was a Sikh and met my mother, and had two daughters with his first wife. I never did get to know them very well so this was really like the first time I have spent time with them in my mature years. The last time I saw them I was a young teen.

Overall I wanted to have this visit be an opening to re-connect with some of my father’s side of the family who I haven’t seen in a long time. It was great to see my grandparents and everyone else. We did so much in the 2-3 days. I look forward to keeping in touch with everyone…now that I know them better. I won’t bother you will details of my family visit… but here are a few pictures that I took while I was there.

  1. WHAT GREAT PICTURE OF Narayan i hope you both had Fun out here Love you Cousin Jenny Miner

  2. Nice photos.

    Out of interest does your family from your dad’s side (who are non-Sikhs) comfortable and understand about Sikhi and you are your close family being Sikhs.

    I ask this because you said you haven’t seen your cousins and grandparents since you was a teenager and not kept fully intouch.

    (ps. hope its not an offensive or imposing question)

    take care bhai sahib :)

  3. I am not sure how familiar my father’s side of the family are with Sikhs. Most of them have seen us as Sikhs for many years, but maybe don’t really know that much about what Sikhs are about. We are all family and I haven’t personally had any issue with them and being a Sikh.

    When I there this weekend one of my cousins was telling me a story of her encounter at a store. Somehow they got on the topic of religion and that the person at the store was a Sikh. My cousin told them that her cousin was a Sikh too….and that it was “Gurumustuk”. They were pretty excited…since I guess they knew my name from SIkhNet.

    Some families that I know of have “disowned” their kids who became Sikhs and much more harsh situations…but fortunately I have not had to go through anything like that.
