Father's Day

I decorated the trees with plastic fruit for June.

We went to the Food Truck Roundup in our town.  We got Kahlua pork rice bowl from Leila's Luau and it was really good.  After we got our food, we went to Jensen park and ate our food next to the pond.

Dad and I went and saw the movies, Jurassic World and San Andreas.

We had a water scare in Syracuse.  Our water tested positive for ecoli and cloriform.  We had to boil our water or drink bottled water for 5 days.

My great aunt Beth died on June 6th.  She was 88.   She was my Grandma Norma's sister.   We went to her funeral in Ogden on June 18th.

We had an eight hour power outage on Friday and it was very hot in our house without air conditioning.

For Father's day, I got my dad a gift card to Olive Garden.
