This home movie begins with scenes from a children's birthday party and ends with a family's trip to Texas. The birthday scenes feature children posing for the camera while wearing tissue paper hats. This is followed by a 15-month-old John playing with a rocking horse and wheelbarrow in the family's Chicago yard. This is followed by B&W footage of the family's road trip to Texas. The majority of the footage of their vacation consists of the family posing with friends and family at various outdoors locations. The final scene appears to be a young John posing in a winter coat outside in Chicago.
