Abstract
A home movie of a family's road trip vacation from Chicago to Eastern Canada followed by Halloween and Christmas scenes at the family's Chicago home. The film beings with children smelling flowers in a residential yard. This is followed by the family touring a park or garden of a resort or apartment building complex. Soon after the family visits a farm. Children pose on a tractor as it drives slowly down a rural road, while cows running away from the camera. This is followed by a Latino family posing and playing music (including an accordion!) in their garden. The film ends with scenes of a children's Halloween party, a family Christmas tree, children playing with model trains and a tour of a doll house.
