Welcome to our blog for the Bates family. They have 19 children. Chad and Erin got married in 2013 and have two children with one on the way. Zach and Whitney got married in 2013 and have two children. John and Alyssa got married in 2014 and have two children with one on the way. Brandon and Michaella got married in 2015. Bobby and Tori got married in 2017. Carlin is in a courtship since August 2017. Josie is in a courtship since January 2018.
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!
