A Robot Party


This weekend my first baby boy turned FOUR!  I can't believe it!  When asked (a few times) what kind of birthday party he wanted to have - he requested a Robot Party.  D has loved robots since he could talk... one of his first phrases was "I am a robot I am a robot."  We have visited a local college, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (with all the other little boys who like robots), for Touch Tomorrow - a day filled with local kiddos and robotics teams doing things I will never understand!  The kids involved in robotics amaze me with their intelligence, dedication, and ability to create cool things using technology :)



So it was no surprise that he stuck with the Robot Party theme :)  SO I was on the search for cool robot stuff... that little kids could enjoy.  I was lucky to find lots of neat things on amazon.  My husband was surprised there was "robot party stuff."  I am guessing with these neat robotics teams - the demand for them will only grow!

For the decorations I used, window cling robots, little plastic robot guys (kind of like those green army guys little boys play with), stackable wooden robots, a robot head (used to take pictures and say "I am a robot" a million times, balloons, and little wind up walking robots.

A few years ago, we would have stocked up on soda, colored ice pops, Doritos, and all kinds of other nasties :) Now, party day is just like all the other days.  I figure if I have high standards for food for my family, I shouldn't dismiss that when I invite other people into my home - I love them just like I love my own family.  I want them to eat food that is free from pesticides, GMOs, artificial colors, and all the other stuff we try to avoid in our daily lives.  I will post recipes for some of these (including Toppah's ribs!) in the coming days - BUT - we served: Ribs, Hamburgers, Chicken Burgers, Quinoa Salad, and fresh corn.  For snacks we had chips and salsa, veggies, pretzels, fresh and picked cherries.  For drinks we had decaf iced tea, yummy fruit sodas (not organic - but not artificial either - a rare treat!), juice boxes, water, wine and beer. Our wonderful guests contributed lots of other delicious items as well.  Do people ask for soda?  Yes.  Am I sad I don't have it?  No.  While I don't hyper-analyze things when we are out and at other homes, I do want to provide the food that we typically eat to guests in our home.  In the end usually everyone is happy, full, and no one misses the doritos.

SO fun.  Goody bags are my favorite part of having a birthday party :)  I found most of the stuff on amazon.  The kids loved it.  The pops are organic, dyed with food - not artificial colors, and the gummy bears are organic Annies.  Yum!  My favorite part are the finger puppet robots - the kids loved them! 


I have to close with my favorite picture of the day - although it wasn't with the birthday boy - it is with my little E in front of my garden :)
