In this home movie from 1958, the Blount family of Longview flies from Robert Mueller Municipal Airport in Austin to Dallas for a wedding. After their arrival, the family first visits with relatives and takes a dip in their hotel swimming pool. The Blounts stay at the historic Stoneleigh hotel, now known as Le Méridien Dallas. Next, the family goes on an outing to the Dallas Zoo, seeing animals like zebras, gorillas, and bears. Finally, they attend the wedding ceremony between Jan and Bob, posing for pictures with the bride and groom. Later, the Blounts enjoy a day on Longview Lake, relaxing on a boat and partaking in water sports.
