This 1950s home movie captures the Caldwell family celebrating and enjoying activities together. At their home in Dallas, the family hosts a backyard barbecue. They next embark on a drive through neighboring Fort Worth and enjoy a relaxing afternoon of fishing. At a farm, eldest daughter Mary Jo rides on a mule, while younger brother Tom chases after her. The film ends with the family, still dressed in their Halloween costumes, examining the spoils of their trick-or-treating.
