Goats, Zip Lines, and an 'Old' Man

It's Bates night! An all-new episode of Bringing Up Bates airs tonight at 9pm ET/8pm CT on UP.

Nathan has connected the Bates' old zip line to the shed, but Gil doesn't think it will hold, so he and the boys scout out another location.

First they try tethering it to the fort, but Gil nixes that idea, so they try another location.

Once the homemade zip line is set up, Gil appoints athletic Trace as the guinea pig. The previous zip line dropped its first rider on the ground, so Gil is a little wary.

Also on tonight's episode, Gil and the little kids visit Erin and Chad to play with the goats.

"Bubby" and "Sissy" are a breed of miniature goats called pygmys. Gil sure seems to like them!

When Chad returns home from work, everyone helps him paint the goat shed, a daunting tax with so many little ones running around.

The Paines hope the shed will help keep the goats from eating their flowers.

Towards the end of the episode, Erin and Chad head out on a romantic getaway to Hot Springs, North Carolina, to celebrate Chad's 30th birthday. The posters that Erin puts up around their rental cottage are hilarious! Check out the video preview below:
