India - part 2

Taj Mahal Well, it is totally worth all of the hype. What a beautiful and impressive building. Pictures really don't do it justice at all. It is bigger than I thought it would be and has so much detail. The stone sparkles in the sun. We spent most of the day there just taking it all in.



Believe it or not, this is our first family picture since Conley was born. It took us four months to get one of all of us.
Conley loving the Taj Mahal.
