Backyard Ballistics

Aaron and Sean attended a backyard ballistics camp for fathers and sons. Here is Aaron with the ice cannon that they built. They need a compressor for the cannon to work so they are off shopping for one. They had a great time blowing things up.

Sean said building the rocket was an exercise in tedium. Fortunately we can get more engines and shoot it off again and again.

Aaron really enjoyed all of the water sports. They went kayaking, canoeing, used and row boat, and swam in the ocean.

Sean liked playing pool and fooz ball. They got to play with airsoft machine guns which Aaron thought was the best thing in the world. He also knows that several of his friends have one. I think I know what Aaron wants for Christmas (It kinda reminds me of the Christmas Story when Ralphie wants the Red Ryder BB Gun).
They also did some knife and ax throwing. It was a great way for them to have some good father-son time together doing guy things!
