This home movie captures the Withers family as they carry on with their daily routines of work and play. Much of the footage shows the Withers family's ranch, and their cattle roaming about with their calves. Also featured are the Withers children as they go skeet shooting, swim, drive in go karts, play little league baseball, go off to Camp Longhorn, fishing, ride donkeys, and return from a successful hunting trip.

The films present in the George Withers collection represent only a fraction of the total amount of footage once belonging to the Withers family; these remaining films are those that survived the devastation of Hurricane Ike, though many of the films suffered some degree of damage.
