The 'New' Bates Family

Tori Bates, Carlin Bates, Josie Bates triple date

"It takes Tori, Carlin, and Josie about, probably two years to get ready." 
-Callie Bates

"They have to be perfect, and if one person wears a really, really good dress, they’re like, 'I can’t wear this, I’ll be ashamed!'"
-Addallee Bates

Callie's statement might be a bit of an exaggeration, but she's certainly not completely wrong. According to Zach, in the old days when eight Bates shared one bathroom, things were very different than they are now, with the"new family" having multiple bathrooms.

In this web exclusive clip from last night's episode, Tori, Carlin, and Josie prove Zach's point to be true, as they help each other get ready for their triple date.

Bates Daddy/Daughter Dinner

"I don't want to be 20 because then you have to go to college, and that's no fun. And you have to work, and there's no time to play."
-Ellie Bates

Last week, we shared a Great Bates Moment video of Gil Bates' and Josie Bates' father/daughter tennis date. Well, with 10 daughters, there's always plenty of daddy/daughter fun to be had! In this Great Bates clip, watch footage from Gil's dinner with the three youngest girls, Addallee Bates, Ellie Bates, and Callie Bates. These gals sure do adore their daddy!

Bates Weekend Snapshots

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Happy Memorial Day to those reading from the United States. We are grateful for the men and women who have given everything to keep our country safe and free. Below are several new photos of the Bates family.

Gotta love this adorable, patriotic picture. Isn't Callie just the spittin' image of Erin? And Judson looks like a young Gil, don't you think?

Carlin Bates met boyfriend Evan Stewart in Nashville (Evan's hometown) for a date night at Maggiano's Little Italy on West End.

Zach and Whitney took a family picture (minus Kaci Lynn, who was napping). For those wondering about Whitney's outfit, her necklace is from Charming Charlie's, her dress is from J.Crew, and her shoes are from Belk.

Bates in Atlanta

The entire Bates family spent the weekend in Atlanta, Georgia, hanging out with the folks from UP TV. They visited headquarters, filmed interviews, and watched the Atlanta Braves take on the Detroit Tigers in an MLB game. Scroll down to see a few snapshots.

Papa Bill and Mama Jane also drove in from South Carolina to be part of the fun. Mama Jane was especially animated during the baseball game.

Gil and Kelly Bates and a handful of their kids stopped by the UP head office back in April. (Click here to see photos from that visit.)

Callie Turns 7

Wishing Callie a blessed 7th birthday! Did you know that Callie's full name is Callie-Anna Rose Bates? She is named after a friend named Rose Ann Brown who greatly impacted the Bates family with her testimony.

The third youngest of the Bates kids, Callie loves cheesecake, just like older sister Erin. She shares a birthday with Jennifer Duggar, who turns nine years old today.

Here is a photo of Callie from two years ago...

And here's a snapshot from the latest UP photoshoot...

Erin: 'It sounds like a zoo'

 Callie Bates, Addallee Bates, and Ellie Bates

"One of the problems we have in our family [is that] we have never learned to let one person talk at a time. There's this huge barrage of verbal things coming, and everybody's talking at one time."

-Gil Bates

Bates Grad Party Snapshots

We know you all have loved seeing pictures from Trace and Carlin Bates' high school graduation party. The Clark family shared the following snapshots with us. Can you tell if there any Bates family members missing from these photos?

...It took us 16 hours to get to TN, and we won the prize for being in a car the longest. It was so, so worth it!!  We weren't even sure if we would meet any of them so you can imagine how we felt meeting them for 2 days, as well as the Duggars!! Best weekend ever!  They are the sweetest people, so down to earth, taking time to get to know their fans. We arrived almost 2 hours early & they let us hang out with them while they set up. Such an honor and a lifetime of memories! Hope to see them again in the future!
