This home movie compilation reel from the Horak Family contains footage from a variety of events. The camera documents the progress of backyard construction of a dog house and "rump room." Also captured are the children dressed up and posing for the camera for a number of events, and the family's trip to New Mexico where they stopped at Dowlin's Old Mill in Ruidoso, watched a Native American display, and visited the campers at the YMCA's Skyline Ranch near Lincoln National Forest.
