In this home movie, the Baylor family watches the Thunderbirds air show and the children play in a model tank and pose in front of a U.S. Air Force plane at Austin's Aqua Fest. John and Diane continue construction on the Lake House, wallpapering the bedroom and installing kitchen cabinets, and Penny, their beagle, makes a brief cameo appearance.

The Baylor Collection is made up of films capturing two generations of the Baylor family, spanning roughly from the late 1940s to 1980. The majority of the films were taken between 1960 - 1980 by John Baylor, and feature his wife, Diane and their three children, Donna, David, and Darin. John and Diane married in 1962 and lived and raised their children in central Austin. In the early 1970s, with the help of John's brother, they built a lake house on Lake LBJ. Much of the footage in the collection is taken either at the lake house, or on road trips to state parks throughout Texas.
