Pudding Fight

My daughter Sam and our neighbor decided to throw a pudding fight party yesterday. I wasn't there (it was during my book signing) but from the pictures they looked like they were having a great time. Here are a couple of pictures. And no, I wouldn't recommend it to everyone. The grass is still brown:D

It was supposed to be all pudding but they ended up dumping in cake mixes and flour and water to add volume. Edible still, I guess, but pretty gross. Their shirts will never be the same--although I think that was the point.

After the fight they hosed off (brrrrrr), then showered off (can we say bathtub rings?), and then watched movies all afternoon. Oh to be young and stupid! Ahh, I mean impulsive . . . What a great way to welcome summer.


  1. Hmmm. My mom used to buy a case of non-mentholated shaving cream and let us play have shaving cream fights on the trampoline. Then to clean up we just hosed off the tramp and jumped in the pool. I'm not sure about a puddign fight, though. I bet the kids loved it though.

  2. Wow. I can barely wrap my head around that kind of mess. I mean, awesome good fun and all

    I'm way too mean a mom to let my kids do something like that. You rock.

  3. Ha, have you ever had teenagers. Not sure how much choice I had. But really, I'd rather have them here having good "clean" fun than running around who knows where.
