Maker Faire

Today we got out as early as we could and went to Maker Faire in San Mateo! This year went better than last year, with the kids being older and more patient….

We were able to see lots of cool things!!

This enormous brain-like shape was made entirely of light bulbs!

A furry cat car the kids could actually sit in! And then be inducted into the Secret Kitty Club, with a hand stamp in invisible ink that only shows up under black light!

I think the highlight of my day was having a young lady in a Tardis dress compliment my Star Wars dress.  🙂  🙂  🙂
