Season Finale Snapshots

Check out these snapshots from the Bates' trip to Dollywood.

During their vacation, the super-sized family enjoyed dinner and a show at the Dixie Stampede.






Several of the family members were given the privilege of participating in the show.

  3. We went to the Dixie Stampede and we loved it. It was very fun place to go. We were one of the couples that went out on the turf. We raced with another couple with a stick horse around a barrel. We didn't win but it was very fun. We loved watching the dancer too in the bar area.

    3. Why good for her if she wears pants. I wore skirts only for a while. They are good for most situations. They are comfortable and can be just as warm as pants.

    5. They do not push skirts on enyone, so stop pushing pants on them.

    I hope you don't mind me asking a question about michaelas wedding band: did she get an additional wedding band or was something added to this beautiful engagement ring? Or does she wear her engagementring as a weddingband without anything added? Thank you very much.

  7. I can't tell if Erin's wearing pants, but have the Duggars and Bates ever explained why their girls don't wear pants? What's wrong with pants? Do they believe that Scottish men wearing kilts is wrong?

    1. They have both said MANY times. It is a modesty conviction that THEY have. They do not push it on others.
