On social media, several members of the Duggar and Bates families have shared that the two families met up recently. They shared an update about their recent get-together in Florida. This trip came after Lawson Bates and Jana Duggar returned from the Bahamas. In the Bahamas, these two, along with a few other members of each family, were helping with hurricane disaster relief.
In Florida, Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo met up with Jana and Lawson. They even stayed with Alyssa Bates, who is Lawson’s sister. On Instagram, Alyssa shared a picture of herself holding her daughter Zoey. Next to her, Jinger is holding Felicity. She writes, “So much fun catching up with @jingervuolo she’s such a beautiful soul 💜 and Zoey loved having a little play mate her size.”
Alyssa shared another post featuring Jana too. In response, Jana wrote, “So great getting to spend some time with y’all! Loved every minute! Going to miss your littles… wish I could’ve taken them all with me!”
On social media, Jinger shared an update about the trip. She posted an adorable family picture, saying, “We had such an amazing time with friends yesterday @universalorlando. And yes, @jeremy_vuolo & I conquered the Incredible Hulk ride many times over!”
The Duggar and Bates families
Fans of the Duggars might know that the family is close with the Bates family. The Bates family appeared on UPtv’s Bringing Up Bates, which showcased the family’s life. The Bates family has 19 kids like the Duggar family does. The most recent season of Bringing Up Bates aired in 2019.
Fans of TLC’s Counting On may also be familiar with the rumors surrounding Lawson Bates and Jana Duggar. Though the rumors have been denied, fans have been hopeful that Lawson and Jana will begin courting. At this point, this relationship has yet to be confirmed. Fans still comment on Jana’s posts regularly and ask about the potential courtship.
When Joy-Anna Forsyth tragically lost her baby girl at 20 weeks gestation, her friend Carlin Bates was there to support her. She even did Joy-Anna’s hair and makeup in preparation for some intimate pictures after the loss.
Those who have watched 19 Kids & Counting and Counting On might recognize the Bates family. They have been family friends for years. Based on the recent reunion in Florida, it seems like they are still very close.
