Welcome to the Bates family Blog! The family has 19 children. Erin married Chad in November 2013 and they have two children. Zach married Whitney in December 2013 and they have two children. Alyssa married John in May 2014 and they have two children. Michaella married Brandon in August 2015. Tori is engaged to Bobby Smith and will be getting married in December 2017. Carlin is in a relationship with Evan since September 2016. Josie is in a relationship with Kelton since Spring 2017.
The Bates family will never forget their house fire, and so they organize a car-washing fundraiser to give back to the heroic volunteer firefighters who responded to their emergency situation. Right before the big day, Zach insists on giving the Bates kids a tutorial on the do's and don'ts of properly washing a car. But will a family water fight put an end to Zach's lesson? Meanwhile, Chad and Erin are interested in purchasing a 'fixer upper' house and begin the search for a property that they hope to renovate and call their own!
