On the Swift Family YouTube channel, Atlanta father and proud family man Don Swift has painstakingly documented quite a number of “firsts” in his toddler daughter Harper’s short life.
First trip to the pet store? Check. First family outing? Check. First crawl with the family dog? Check. In fact, nearly 20 million people have watched as a then-five-month-old Harper crawls across the living room toward the family dog, who rewards the effort with a sweet lick.
Now fast forward about 10 months to the summer of 2015, when Harper — now almost 1.5 years old — gets to experience her first summer rain.
“Although she’s seen it from the window before now, this is the first time she played in the warm summer rain… and her reaction was absolutely precious!” her parents wrote in the caption.
The family had returned home after an outing, but all the way home, “she simply couldn’t get enough, from the car ride home and watching it pour all over the car windows, to getting out and wanting nothing more [than] to run around, play … with her Daddy.”
“We’re gonna go out there in the rain,” he says in a voice brimming with giddiness.
“You’re gonna get wet! Alright, here we go!”
