Twenty-seven years ago Gil and Kelly Jo Bates tied the knot with no plans to have kids. Fast forward 19 kids later and this tight-knit family, seemingly too good to be true, has a tremendous bond but are far from perfect. As you will see, when you have a house full of 19 children, from ages two to 25, daily chaos is multiplied exponentially, but so are the joyful and poignant moments that life can bring.
In the fifth-season opener, the Bates head to North Carolina to pick up Warden, Jackson and Isaiah from camp, and Tori's boyfriend gives the family a special tour of camp. Alyssa surprised the family with news that she was pregnant with Lexi Mae.
The Bates visit Florida so that Tori can spend time with Bobby, who has a big surprise for her.
From beach trips to lake trips to camp and water gun fights, the Bates family knows how to have fun in the good old Summertime; a look at the best Summer moments yet.
