I tried braiding my eldest daughter's hair

She was sitting beside me, so the braid runs the 'wrong' way which I think looks pretty interesting. Also, I didn't have a rubber band for the end, so I back-spliced the end.

I was surprised how well this worked. I did a sloppy job of it, and it still held for a while. I think I will need to practice my rope back-splicing on her hair some more.

Watching Punkin Chunkin with my youngest

So to make it real for her and more fun for me, I printed a catapult on my RepRap. That little machine makes TV much more interesting.

My 3d printer printing out a Catapult.

My 1 year old playing with a catapult during the Punkin Chunkin show! I think she likes it!

Sit STILL kid! I am trying to take a photo of you!

Catapult set all done printing. The really wide brim and several layer tall skirt help me print ABS on glass.

The  wide brim ties all the pieces together and ends up working like a sprue and all the bits stay together! Granted, now I have to cut all the pieces away from the brim.

She loved the feet. Probably because it’s the pieces I handed to her first as they are big enough to not be a choke hazard.

She’s figuring out how to make it work.

A fun toy daddy!

See! I told you we where watching it on TV!

PUNKIN CHUNKIN!!!!!
