Five years ago last week, my sweet little middle child Haydn came into this world. One week late and nearly 10 pounds, he made his entrance a memorable one.

Shortly after we had visited my video game loving brother, who is always showing Haydn all kinds of cool new things, I asked Haydn what kind of birthday party he wanted this year. So, inspired by Uncle Marc, Haydn said he wanted a Megaman party. A what? Exactly. Megaman is a video game that started in the 80's and has had multiple updated versions and now even a cartoon show. Since I thought it would be a little tricky to do just a Megaman party (and it was likely NONE of his friends would have any idea who that was) we decided on a superhero party that would include Megaman.

Assorted superhero inspired cookies
'Power Pops' were cherry vanilla marshmallows covered in white chocolate, YUM!
'Kryptonite Krunch' aka spearmint candy
The very retro Megaman
He got them all out in one blow!
Nana and Papa gave him a dress up box which included a handmade Darth Vader cape and handmade Luke Skywalker/Karate Kid costume. Haydn loved the Luke/Karate costume so much he wore it the rest of the day, then slept in it, and continued to wear it all day Sunday! Nicely done mom!
For the party activity the kids got to decorate their very own superhero capes and masks. Here is my daughter Ryann making big superhero plans to save the world with their friend Ashley.
