Counting On star Jinger Duggar is the the only married Duggar who is currently living outside of Arkansas and away from the rest of the family, as she and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, and their one-year-old daughter Felicity moved to Los Angeles this summer. Despite her parents’ supposed issues with the move, the family has finally traveled to the West Coast to visit the family rebel.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar traveled to Hollywood this past week to meet up with Jinger, Jeremy, and Felicity, but the conservative parents aren’t the only ones in town. Her big sister Jana is also back in Los Angeles, along with Josh, Anna, and their five kids, John-David and Abbie Grace, and all of Jinger’s young siblings, which means 18 Duggars are currently in LA for the visit.
The only members of the family who stayed behind in Arkansas are Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth, Jill and Derick Dillard, Jess and Ben Seewald, Joe and Kendra, and Lauren and Josiah.
The family has been posting pics on social media of the big trip – which also included a stop in Arizona at the Grand Canyon – and so far they have hit the beach, enjoyed some shopping, hit some tourist spots, and they have also enjoyed some of LA’s restaurants.
Jinger posted a pic of Jim Bob and Michelle with Felicity, and she wrote in the caption how thankful she was for her parents.
“If you are blessed to still have grandparents, make it a point to visit them, love on them, and cherish them,” wrote Jinger. “I am so thankful for these two, who are amazing grandparents to our sweet Felicity.”
Josh and Anna’s oldest daughter Mackynzie also turned 10 during the vacation, and she celebrated with a trip to the American Girl store.
While most of the family members took a road trip from Arkansas to California, John David and Abbie Grace flew one of the family planes and joined the group in Arizona.
Michelle – who once famously slammed her daughter Jinger for wanting to live in a big city – said she was thrilled to be spending time with her daughter in California.
The new season of Counting On premieres Tuesday, October 15th on TLC.
