John Woods is your typical American man; he loves his country, but he loves his quiet mornings with a cup of joe more. John lives in a house with a huge open backyard, full of ancient trees that provide cool shade in the summer and their branches are sturdy enough to hold a tire swing for the kids.

But the kids don’t use that swing so much anymore and it looks like John is too sentimental about the old thing to take it down. Good thing too, because John’s backyard gets visited by a very unusual guest and far too often to be just a coincidence.

Each day John Woods is paid a visit by an adult female moose at his home in the Black Forest area of Colorado, where that tire swing offers light entertainment and a fish fountain some cool refreshments. Nicknamed “Momma Moose”, Woods said she has been visiting his home for over two years around the same time each morning and described her as “sweet” and “very curious.” This footage, recorded on March 3, shows the moose playing with the tire swing in his backyard.

We can only imagine the Colorado native, sitting on the porch of his house, in a fuzzy bathrobe, drinking his coffee in a mug that says “Best Dad Ever” and recording the moose with his phone. Ah, the American dream...
