Family catches a bear and her cubs frolicking in their backyard pool

When it's hot, families across the country pack up their cars, cover the kids in sunscreen, and head to the nearest body of water - and a video out of New Jersey shows bear moms don't think that differently. In the adorable viral video, posted by Tim Basso on YouTube, a mom and her 5 precious cubs frolic into the back yard, and then hop in the pool for a swim.
Mom and her cubs are seen splashing around, throwing the pool toys out, and playing around in the back yard. Basso's kids, who you can hear through the entire video, are less interested in the hilarious scene, and more concerned about sharing their pool and playscape with their furry neighbors.

The video was captured in August, but it's not necessarily the humid summer heat that leads these bears to the pool. The Bear Life Organization says that black bears are natural swimmers - using the water to fish for food. So while the play day may look like all fun and games, the cubs were actually learning some valuable swimming lessons from mom.
