This home movie captures scenes of the Cochran family attending a Cochran family reunion in Clint, Texas, followed by scenes of the family swimming at Barton Springs Pool in Austin. At the family reunion, the kids fish, then proudly display their catch for the camera. The entire Cochran family--Frankie Lee, his parents, his siblings, and their spouses and children--then poses together, some of the women wearing matching Apache dresses. At Barton Springs, the kids take turns going off the diving board. Brief scenes of Virginia playing with kittens in the yard are also included.
