During our daily routines, it can be easy to forget how beautiful so many simple moments in life can be.
This toddler and her father, Don Swift, capture one such moment as they frolic happily in the summer’s first rain.
The video starts with Don holding his daughter in the garage as she gazes at the rain through the open garage door. “Harper, do you want to go out in the rain?” He asks.
He starts moving towards the driveway, and every step he takes makes her smile grow wider and wider until they’re fully outside. The next minute is full of pure joy for both father and daughter.
The child’s delight is a reminder of how the ordinary, when seen through new eyes, can become an extraordinary adventure.
