They may have filed for divorce, but Jon and Kate Gosselin have made good on their pledge to focus on their children, reuniting for a Fourth of July picnic.
At their home in Wernersville, Pa., the family played volleyball and picked blueberries for a cake Kate was baking, while Jon was seen lighting sparklers.
Fortunately, Cara, Mady, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel were all seemingly able to escape injury ... and a Kate Gosselin spanking.
The event had been planned, as the stars of TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8 agreed a few weeks ago to fulfill their contractual obligations and act like they can tolerate each other set aside their differences for the national holiday.
How wonderful - and not shocking - to see them reunite. Since Kate's book and clothing line have recently been sacked, the show's all she's got left.
How sweet. All 10 Gosselins are back together ... if only because it's a national holiday, and TLC told them to be for the sake of their reality show. [Photo: Splash News]
"Jon pointed to the July 4 holiday and said, 'What are we going to do about that?'" Kate Gosselin recently told People. "I absolutely cannot imagine not spending every single holiday with my kids. I don't care what it takes. I will be there."
Apparently, so will Jon. Even if he is spending the rest of his time hunting for NYC apartments, giving it to Deanna Hummel and posting a profile on Match.com.
