While dad took the kiddos out to swim for the last time mom stayed inside to pickle a ton of cucumbers from our garden. I was super nervous about pickling but it turned out to not be as hard as I thought! The true test will be in 6 weeks when we actually try them. We will see if they'll taste any good.
P.S. The two older kids have sure gotten better at swimming since we got the pool. I'm pretty impressed since Mason used to be really scared to swim. Now they are like little fish!
