Happy 2nd Birthday Armaan!

We canceled our planned trip to Canada because of the costs involved, and spent an extra few days in Michigan. The weather was great, and the kids had a lot of fun. It's amazing that Armaan turned 2. The little guy is a joy to our hearts, and so much fun to be with.

Another plan brewing to take over the world

Hey who took this picture, and why are Kavon's hands around my daughter?!!

Visit to the zoo

We got free zoo passes from the library, and headed out on a warm Friday. The biggest disappointment was that in the Hammil Family Zoo the little creek was under construction. Priya was younger than Armaan when we had last gone there, and we had fond memories of her splashing around in it.

Headlight lens restoration through wet sanding

I just had to show these pictures. I had heard about sanding down the headlights to get the haziness out, but I was skeptical it could be very effective. Boy was I wrong! Here are the results of a few hours spent with a drill, 3 different grits of sandpaper, and a lens polisher.

This is what the headlights look like after 11 years of oxidation

Round 1 - makes it look worse!

Round 2 - the top layer has been sanded out

Round 3 and 4 - Amazing!!

As good as brand new!!
