I didn't plan my day out in advance so I had lots of time on my hands. I'm sure this was good for me because I usually have every minute scheduled. I filled up the morning with a long walk into the Berkeley hills with Lindsey and some window-shopping. Then I got sucked into a television show, Brothers and Sisters, which I could watch on abc.com, courtesy of Red Lobster, Bertoli, Jack in the Box, and other sponsors.
About four hours later, I got busy cleaning, organizing, and grocery shopping. But truth be told, I missed Lucas and Kevin.
I picked them up from BART at 7:30. Eager to hear about their day, I asked a lot of questions, but didn't get much in the way of answers from these two:
- It was really cool. Lots of exploding stuff which Lucas wasn't really into.
- We ate pizza, ice cream and popcorn.
- I saw R2D2.
- There was a whole room filled with LEGO stuff.
- We saw lots of robots.
- I saw some of the geekiest people ever.
- We saw cupcake cars.
Me: What type of fire truck?
Kevin: I don't know, it said "Maker Faire" on it.
Me: What else? Was there something different about it?
Kevin: I don't remember. It was big and red.
That's it? They spend 10 hours away from home and that's all I get? So much for filling in the details. I guess I'll have to go next year to see what it was all about.
