Well we had a fantastic day at the Star Wars Exhibition at Scienceworks on Friday – It was a fabulous birthday for a 7 year old boy.  This attractive chappies is C3PO, sans gold skin.  We also saw Storm Troopers, Wookies, R2D2, Darth Vader and many models of Star Wars Vehicles.

We had fun trying different wheels on our robot, and running it through it’s paces.

We even got to play with a pretty authentic looking Light Sabre.

After a full day out we came home to a lovely dinner and a fantastic Yoda Cake, decorated by Luke in less than a half hour!
