My favorite thing I like to do with my dad is go for long mountain bike rides. It is fun when we play baseball catch. I love him because we both like to watch Man vs. Wild. When I grow up, I want to be a civil engineer like my dad. It's cool when he takes me surveying and I get to ride the quad. He is really nice.
