Later on, when I was 8, my dad and I decided to go down to the creek and just play in the water and have fun! When we were getting tired we unpacked the sandwiches I made and we ate, then Dad got a genius idea! Dad thought we should build a dam! It only took four hours to do and by the time we were done it was six and the sun had started to set. So dad picked me up and threw me over his shoulders and started to climb up the steep hill to our house, we would carry me over his shoulder all the time, whenever I got sleepy and he would dance around and sing “Sack of Potatoes, Sack of
