The Duggar family took date night to a new level Sunday, as Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar joined kids Josh, Jill, and Jessa, and their spouses for an evening of fun.
The rest of their 19 Kids and Counting? At home with Jana Duggar, obviously.
Josh, Jill and Jessa Duggar, and their spouses Anna Duggar, Derick Dillard and Ben Seewald, joined Jim Bob and Michelle for a photo Josh put up on Twitter.
“Quadruple-date with these people!” the 26-year-old father of three children himself (soon to be four) captioned the photo of the family posing in a minivan.
That family really needs a customized, stretch minivan of some kind.
The quadruple Duggar date follows Jessa and Jill’s double date earlier this month with husbands Ben and Derick, which put to rest whispers of a feud.
There had been talk of Jill Duggar and Jessa Duggar feud, but a dinner party put that to rest. Jill wrote: “@jessaseewald and @ben_seewald are here for dinner!”
“So fun hanging out with our siblings! #familydinnner #19kids.”
You know who hangs out with her siblings a lot? Jana Duggar, the family's oldest daughter, and the one left in charge of the little ones in many situations.
Or when anyone in the family does anything, basically.
The saintly, ever-patient Jana has become so put upon that she's even being edited out of episodes of the family's reality show in order to quell fan outcry.
Don't expect that to work in the Social Media Age, though.
19 Kids and Counting fans are passionate and know that the show isn't the whole story. Scrubbing her from TLC doesn't make this shining star invisible.
Not as a human being. Not as a human being.
Speaking of the family reality show, it returns Tuesday, February 17, 2015 with updates on Jill and Derick’s life as newlyweds, and footage from Jessa's wedding.
Should be a lot of great stuff for fans of the Duggar clan. Things you should NOT expect to see when you watch 19 Kids and Counting online this spring:
- Jim Bob's shock when he was told Jessa and Ben would be sharing their first kiss in private, as he reportedly told producers to edit that out.
- Jinger Duggar walking in on Jessa and Ben consummating their marriage at the church, which supposedly happened to the horror of guests.
- Jana Duggar, in general.
