Carlin and Joy-Anna

The Duggar family has been on a road trip, and they stopped by to see the Bates in East Tennessee. The two families have been friends for more than 20 years. Check out this new picture of Carlin Bates and Joy-Anna Duggar, who are six months apart in age and are best friends.

  1. Oh my the high winds that we had here blew over their way! Gotta hate when that happens right when you're trying to get a picture taken.

  2. So sweet! I like Carlin's wind-swept hair. It matches her personality :)

  3. Is Tori getting married this weekend? Seems suspicious that the Duggars go visit them right after Up says there will be a wedding this season..

    1. I think you may be correct. The Bates have not updated their facebook page since last Tuesday...and that was only a picture taken last Saturday. They've been busy doing something! Lilly & Ellie usually take a break when a wedding loooms, so I will be paying attention to the frequency of these posts as well.

    2. They all attended Chad's sister, Tabitha's wedding. Kind of a weird teaser as she isn't part of the show.

    4. No, unfortunately they are at Tabitha Paine's wedding. I'm so upset she went through with it. After waiting so long for the one God intended for her, I find it so sad that she settled for marrying an unapologetic rapist.

    5. They actually are at someone else's wedding. I only know because the bride is my friend. ;) Not a clue if it's going to be the wedding on the show since I wasn't at the wedding myself though.

  5. The duggar girls slim down a lot when they fall in love
    Wonder if she would share her "get in shape" strategy

    1. I don't think it's a strategy lol, Im pretty sure excitement just takes over most desire for food, happened to me too, eating was a nuisance:p

    2. I think the "strategy" may be laying off tater tot casserole and exercise.

  7. It would be loveley if Carlin is one of Joy Anna's bridemaids.
    Long friendships are difficult to maintain with distances between them.
    Best wishes to the both of them

    1. i wondered about that - i didnt see any of the Bates family at Joy's wedding or Ginger's for that matter. In previous years, they would always be seen at special events!

  10. I think your reactions need to be different. You need one that says cute and maybe one thats says fun!!!

  11. I'm placing a very high guess that Joy will ask Carlin to be a bridesmaid for her wedding.

  16. I've never known Carlin and Joy to be particularly close. Aren't their siblings supposed to be their best friends? I thought they weren't allowed friends outside of their family?
