Last month, thanks to Air France and Maker Faire, the boys and I had the opportunity to attend Maker Faire 2015 in the San Francisco Bay Area. It was my very first Maker Faire experience, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. In the past Steve and Aiden attended together, but this year Steve had a booth so I braved the crowds with the boys.

Make Faire is known as “The Biggest Show And Tell On Earth”, and rightfully so. We found so many amazing new projects from all ages, ranging from drones to 3d printing, and back again. The event encompasses what I’d like to call a romance between crafts and technology. One of our favorite parts was the dark room, where we met Geoffry the Giraffe. All of the different parts were labeled and interactive, so if you pet his face, he’d react depending on which part of his face you touched. We met up with Sally for lunch, and to cheer her girls on for the real life whack-a-mole (mole-a-whack, the roles are reversed!). We had a wonderful time and can’t wait to attend next year.

P.S. To say that I’m a little proud of my husband is a huge understatement.
