Maker Faire

Maker Faire! E and I jumped on the train and spent the day with the nerds.

Ella liked the train ride as much or more than the whole faire :)

First: Arc attack, a faire regular.  I was glad I'd brought her ear protection for just this, she seemed to really like it.  They started with the imperial death march :)

Lit by lightning.  Glowing forest in the background.

Touching the inflatable glowing forest.
Nap time

In front of the giant mousetrap
Metal, fire.
Sweet giant bubble maker
Human sized replica of mousetrap.  It broke twice during the run, just like the real game :)  Liberal application of a sledge hammer didn't fix it either.
They live, we sleep.  Built out of polarized light filters.  None of the 16 year-olds around me were nearly as excited as I was by this.
Climbing wall that lights up with different routes
Whiskeydrome.  These guys are great, Ella was a big fan.
There are bikes inside those cupcakes :)
