This home movie captures a variety of scenes of the Jones’ family life in the 1950s. Second Lieutenant John Grant Jones returns from military service, babies learn to crawl and walk, and little girls play on swings and celebrate birthdays. The end of the film features a visit to Circle Thirteen Ranch, where the children get to ride horses!
