Bates Ski Trip 2019

Remember when the Bates family went skiing back in 2017, on the episode titled "Mass-a-somethin"? That was one of the first times fans met Evan Stewart, who was Carlin's "special friend" back then.

Since that adventure, the Bates have gone skiing multiple times. This week, some of the family is in Winter Park, Colorado, enjoying the snow and slopes. It's a boys' bonding trip, with Gil and some of the boys, plus a few friends, but Kelly jokes that the guys didn't want to starve, so they invited her.

'Big Apple Bride' Recap

Bringing Up Bates "Big Apple Bride"

  • It’s time to find Josie a wedding dress. She wants a flowy gown with laced longs sleeves. She found one online that she loves, but it’s in New York City. “It sounds expensive, doesn’t it?” Kelly jokes with Gil. She is up for the adventure.
  • They decide to take Whitney, since she has never been to the Big Apple. Kelly, Carlin, and Katie take a double decker bus tour of the city when they arrive. They enjoy taking in all the iconic sites like Time Square. “Whitney is over-the-top excited,” says Kelly.
  • But Josie has one thing on her mind, and that's the dress. At her dress appointment, she ends up finding "the one," making a few changes to fit her modesty standards.
  • Later, Evan and Carlin go ring shopping with Evan’s brother Ethan, Callie, and Katie. “Carlin, she wants it to be a together process,” says Kelly. Evan admits he is concerned that he is going to choose a ring that Carlin dislikes.
  • While the girls are in New York on their “money spending trip” as Gil calls it, he and some of the boys go golfing.
