Cucumber Olympics

We had a surge of cucumbers in the garden. Quite a few of them were yellow and large, and after eating so many for two days we retired these to other more athletic uses. First we had a cucumber toss, a la javelin or discus, the athelets choice. Owen slung his catapult style with daddy via a shovel. We were going for distance and burst upon impact. Kurt's discus throw is somewhere in the state park.....Then Alex coined an event called the cucumber carving competition and we lit the three contestants up in the front yard. The aroma of roasting cucumber would make a revolutionary candle scent, it filled the front yard all evening......It was a nice end to our anniversary which was the weekend of the 1996 Olympics, and the still full looking moon this evening was also nice since it was the anniversary of the moon landing in 1969. Gluten Free fact we learned today--P.F. Chang's has a whole separate gluten free menu, wow!
