Recap: Bobby's happy Camper

Special Note: We have been getting asked to do recaps from the live shows and we will start doing them next week. We haven't decided yet if they will be attached to the recaps or if they will have their own post. We will keep you update on our facebook/twitter page! 
Tori is super excited that her boyfriend (Bobby Smith) is moving up to Tennessee! She hopes that everything is going to be easy. Judson thinks that Bobby is just moving up here so he can marry and start kissing.

Zach and Whitney head over to the camper to meet Tori. Bobby will be staying at the camper that their family friend is letting him stay there. Chad and Erin arrive to the camper to make signs with Tori.

Next up is Josie, Kelton and Jackson to the camper. Kelton looks at the leak under the sink and ends up replacing it.

Gil reveals that raising the girls has been a bad dead since there is a chance that there are three weddings in the future as Tori, Carlin and Josie.

Before leaving Flordia, Bobby heads to get the ring that he had made for Tori. The store is the place that his father got his mother's engagement ring. Bobby is blown away by the finished product.

Bobby and his parents arrive to Tennessee and Tori is on cloud nine. Sheri reveals that they have been apart for so long and now it will be the best thing for them to get to know the family better.

Tori helps him unpack and she asked him where the ring is. Bobby plays it cool and jokes about not talking about ring.

Bobby and his parents head over to the Bates home and gives them a tour before they have to leave. Gil says that neither parents were quite ready for a tour. Tori reveals that her mother loves the house to be clean and prefect.

The family is happy to have Bobby in Tennessee before the engagement and wedding. The couple makes plans for their future. They know that there could be a chance that their ministry will leave them out of Knoxville when she graduates in May 2018.

Gil says that he is glad that Bobby is moving up here to give them a chance to know him better. It also gives him a chance to know the kids better. He seems pretty happy about it and so he (Gil) is grateful.
