images surfacing of president kennedy and his children from a summer weekend 50 years ago tonight. The kennedy library taking us back. Arriving at otis air force base, massachusetts, president kennedy forsaking the cares of state for a relaxing weekend on cape cod is rushed by a toddler. Reporter: America knew that toddler well, john john, as he was affectionately called, at the time just 2 years old. Junior knows the ropes and is first aboard the copter. Reporter: Tonight, rare footage of a summer weekend 50 years ago this weekend. A 50-minute film posted by the kennedy presidential library. President kennedy teeing off. Th46-year-old president putting and, well, missing the shot. The camera trained on him, though, for the entire round of golf and with the next putt, there is more success. Later, dignitaries arrive by helicopter, and as was so often the case, neighbors gathering there in high yyannhyannisport to see who it was paying a visit. Taking that familiar golf cart down to the dock, aboard the presidential yacht. Little caroline on his lap, and then down the stairs to share a swim with her dad, four months before she would lose him. A backstroke before getting back on board, where she would find her mother and, again, the lap of her father, as they finished their sun-splashed weekend, 50 years ago tonight.
