Shelley, Kristin, Asa, Kohen and I went to the LR Zoo today. When we were buying our tickets Shelley turned to the man behind her and said "Hey!" He said hello back. She knew he looked familiar and thought he went to her church... Then she saw ALL of the kids standing behind him! Then it hit her... "He's familiar because he's on TV! It's JIM BOB DUGGAR and the Duggar KIDS!!!
I was in the gift shop when all this went down. I came out and Kristin told me the Duggars were there! I saw the camera crew and all the kids. I couldn't believe it!!! I told them that I watched an episode of "19 Kids and Counting" right before I went to bed last night! I never in a million years would have guessed I would SEE them the following day!
This is a picture I found on the internet from the TLC hit show "19 Kids and Counting"
We followed them (it felt like) all day off and on. We kept hoping to get a chance to talk to them. About 3 hours into the day we ran into them again. Jim Bob went up to Kristin and asked her if she worked at Children's Hospital. She told him yes, that she is one of the ones who helps take care of Josie. I took this as an opportunity to talk to Jim Bob :) I don't know what came over me! My mouth just kept talking! I didn't really think before I spoke, I just kept rambling to him about the episode I had watched just the night before. He said Josie was doing well. I told him hopefully she would be home in time for Mother's Day. He agreed that that would be great. Anyway, in the middle of all my rambling, I did ask if we could take a picture with him! He was VERY kind and said yes!
Jim Bob introduced his daughter he was holding... he said "This is Jordyn" and I said "yeah, we know!" LOL!
