Peanut, Peanut Butter and...

We were driving to Sharon Vermont to go camping (more later) over the 4th of July. The babies had finally fallen asleep and we were driving along quietly. Johnny and I were talking and I said "I can smell peanut butter... that's weird." About a minute later I realized that I had set the basket full of our camping food on the back seat next to Lila. I turned around to find this...


Turns out our Family Home Evening of making peanut butter balls was a little too fresh in her memory. She had a big ball of peanut butter in her hands.


We pulled over at the next gas station and I took her into the bathroom to try and clean her up a little. Luckily there was a shower in there so I stripped her down and scrubbed. I don't think we'll ever quite get the PB smell out of her car seat though...


Lucky for her Johnny and I have a good sense of humor!!

HOLY COW!!! I CANNOT BELIEVE LILA!!!! Wow, that's funny but I'm so glad that I didn't have to deal with that. Your children never cease to amaze me. Hopefully you had enough food for the rest of your camping trip...

My favorite part is she has the peanut butter war paint look going. She even painted on eyebrows. She did a great job for not having a mirror. Plus I bet the peanuts did wonders for her complexion. That is pretty funny though.

Lila is living the dream. I've wanted to smear peanut butter all over myself too.

This is hilarious! Brady and I laughed so hard when we read this. Of course, we weren't the ones to have to clean up the mess. What a creative imagination this girl has! I'll make a note to never set peanut butter around kiddos in the car or anywhere else for that matter. :)

Yes, Lila is a lucky girl to have two cool parents that didn't completely freak out over that. I'm so glad that you had the foresight to document her shenanigans with the camera! Very funny.

Well, it could've been worse than Peanut Butter, right?
(sitting here trying to think of what would've been worse than peanut butter, you know, besides poop, lol...)

Lila is such a fun little girl! We had so much fun camping with you guys in VT. Hopefully we can do it again some time. And this time hopefully Lila won't lather up with a condiment on the way to the camp ground.

This is unbelievable! I'm so glad you took pictures. She and Juliette must have been conspiring, only this totally tops the Nutella incident.
