Little Bates Fam in SC

Zach and Whitney Bates are enjoying some time away with their kiddos this week. They made the trek down to Charleston (only a six-hour drive) to tour the city and swim in the Atlantic ocean. Have you ever visited that area of the country?

    1. I thought the same thing about Zach, but didn't want to post anything for fear it would be taken the wrong way. I think he's lost weight and been working out because he's looking good! They are a sweet couple!

  8. We used to live there! Still have a place down there, but don't get to go as often as we wish we could. Beautiful place and wonderful people.

  9. Love love the matching mommy & me hats! These pics prove modest and modern can co-exist! Whitney's outfits, Zach's shorts - all in good taste. It is possible to dress modestly without drawing attention to yourself by wearing dresses and jeans at the beach.

    1. Depending upon where one lives it common to see ladies in dresses at the beach and no one would bat an eyelash.

    2. I totally agree! As long as it's tasteful and respectful I don't think it's a problem. I care more about their character than what they're wearing. They seem to be a very loving and godly family.

    3. I think it's awesome that Whitney has her own Modesty standards - and that her and Zach do, also. It proves that 95% of Modesty is character and virtue than actual clothing. I hope God blesses this sweet family - they are adorable!

    4. Whitney is actually wearing a bathing suit under her cute little crochet cover up dress. You can also wear swimsuits to the beach and be modest. I am sure whitney removed her cover up at some stage, but will keep any photographs private. I see nothing wrong with that, she is with her family enjoying a day at the beach not doing it to flaunt herself.

    5. If Zach doesn't have a problem with it neither should anyone else.

    6. What bizarre comments. What would be wrong with a photo of Whitney in a swimsuit, and why do you assume photographs of women in swimsuits are taken to flaunt? Why would it be wrong to take a photo of oneself in a swimsuit precisely to flaunt oneself?

    7. Kitkath: The first two posters seemed to be making a big deal about Whitney being so modestly dressed. I see posts like that all the time which is why I posted that she was wearing a swimsuit. She and zach do have modesty standards of their own and do not seem to go to the same extremes some of the other bates do. I would not see anything wrong with a picture of any of them in a swimsuit, but some here would have a stroke if they did lol. My motto is each to their own. I wear swimsuits myself and have no problems with others doing the same. Just shows how a post can taken in a way it wasn't intended!

  10. Zach and Whitney have always been my favorite Bates Couple. And Zach looks like he is working out he is in good shape good for you Zach! I have never been to SC as I live wayyy up north in ND. I have been through TN one time in my life but didn't get to stop and see anything because I was riding along with someone for a work trip.

  12. What a beautiful family! Zach and Whitney are my second favorite couple. May they continue to grow more in love as they grow deeper in God.

  13. I wish I'd known they were here! I've lived here all my life, I would have loved to seen them and made some great recommendations of must-sees. I really hope they enjoyed their trip really happy that came here!

  14. Ellie,
    Is it possible to get a detailed diet/exercise plan from Whitney? I know you have said in the past she tries not to eat past six but would love a detailed plan...breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner and what she does for exercise. She looks amazing!

    1. Try keeping your carbs down and concentrate on lean protein, veggies, and low glycemic fruits.

  15. Whitney has grown in beauty even more inside to the outside since having children I think from viewing these photos. She looks stunning in that first photo. Seems to have really slimmed down quickly & trimmer than ever I think since Kaci was born although that's normal I think when you're running around after 2 adorable little ones. Blessings to this beautiful family.

  16. Folly Beach!! Charleston SC has been our vacation site for several years. This couple portrays real love. Beautiful little family.

  17. Whoa...!! That white with blue florals sundress on Whitney is the prettiest sundress I have seen in a long time. She looks GREAT in it. See, it's very possible to be classy and not hang everything 'hang out". I wouldn't say she's dressing UNBIBLICALLY, folks. I hope Kelly doesn't give her any pressure or guilt to frump it up when she's at her in-laws' house. They should all look as good as Whitney and Alyssa do when they're allowed to be themselves, WHICH SHOULD BE ALL THE TIME, EVERYWHERE. Both Whit and Zach look good, happy, relaxed and having a nice time. I hope his parents don't 'counsel him' about their wardrobe.

    1. This made me laugh:-) Picturing Kelly telling Whitney, "You need to frumpy it up."

  18. Well, I live in Florida, and I haven't seen ladies swimming in dresses yet. I'm 59 years old and a conservative person. I don't think I'd go to the beach in a dress; just not made for swimming. Perhaps at the lake up north where it just doesn't get very hot?..and a very conservative/religious community?

    1. I always think that those overly modest swimsuits with the skirts must be incredibly difficult to swin in. The skirt must get heavy and get in the way of your legs while trying to swim. I also think in some situations they might be dangerous, getting caught up in weeds etc if swimming in a lake or in outlets in swimming pools. There are lots of swimsuits out tbere which have short type bottoms, or tankinis or even just swim shorts and a tshirt, all would be more comfortable and draw less attention to you than the victorian get up, next thing will be the bathing hut rolled to the edge of the water!
