 Ok so we have been evaded by ROBOTS! That's right, you heard me right, two vicious, but adorable cloned robots from Enfield, Reditch UK. These are part of our flat traveler exchange program that the kiddos do.As you can tell they were inducted into our family immediately.  Since the 4th of July is coming up, your robots got elected to help prepare fireworks. My husband LOVES to do this with the kids every year and as you can imagine it takes lots of preparation and hard work. You guys got the grand tour right away.
 You got your quick introduction to all the chemicals you need, how to put the shells together, how to weigh the chemicals needed and so much more.  Here is a link to the tip of the iceberg into rocket/firework making: http://www.skylighter.com/fireworks/how-to-make/Smith-Roman-Candles.asp
As you can tell there is alot of math and science behind making these wonderful fireworks. Here is Robbie the Robot 2.0 helping out with the cutting, measuring, gluing and setting of the Roman Candle my husband, James, is working on.

Here is Icebreaker weighing in on making a Roman Candle and providing us with some his his insight and expertise that was much needed.

 As you can imagine all that hard work deserved a little bit of play. So your robots got to jam out with the kiddos on RockBand. They took over the drums right away, but untimely allowed Drake to play along with them.
 After some jamming with the Wii, the kids went out to play with the great Jack Attack in the yard and with the basketball. Getting Jack or Drake to sit still long enough to get a picture is almost impossible.

Here are some of the cut parts, labeled we will use to make smaller fountains shells.
