Recap: "A Reveal to Remember"

19 Kids and Counting, "A Reveal to Remember":

  • The DC Duggars finally make it to Chicago after an 800-mile RV trip. They arrive at the home of David and Priscilla Waller, Anna's brother-in-law and sister, and are greeted by a "Welcome to Chicago" sign hanging on the front door.

  • Priscilla is pregnant with her second child and is getting ready to announce the baby's gender, so the Duggars and Wallers head over to a neighbor's house for a gender reveal party. Guests share whether they think the baby is a boy or a girl by wearing either blue or pink.

  • Priscilla says she would have been happy making the announcement to family and friends in a more conventional way but that her husband was set on having a gender reveal party.

  • During the party, everyone gathers around to watch David and Priscilla's son, Paul, rip the tape off a cardboard box. Pink balloons are released into the air. It's a girl!
  • "I am so excited about having a girl," says Priscilla.

  • "I am especially happy because David wore a pink shirt, and it really would have been an embarrassment to him if he wasn't right," jokes Josh.

  • The next day, the two families pile into the Duggars' RV and drive into downtown Chicago.

  • "This is Chicago for crying out loud. This is a piece of cake," says Josh, who has driven an even larger vehicle through the streets of Manhattan.

  • They are able to find parking directly in front of the entrance to the Willis Tower Skydeck. They take the elevator up to the Skydeck, where they walk out on a glass ledge 1,353 feet above street level. For lunch, the Duggars and Wallers visit a kitchen where they make their own deep dish pizza.
  • On day three, Anna and Priscilla leave the kids with the dads and head to a consignment shop to pick out clothes for Priscilla's baby girl. "It was neat just telling her how fun it will be for Paul to have a little sister," shares Anna. "It does get easier in some ways because your children can entertain each other instead of Mommy and Daddy being all of the entertainment."

  • Meanwhile, Josh and David haul all four kids to a hardware store to buy supplies for their upcoming camping trip. "It was not easy to shop with four kids," admits Josh.

  • On day four, the Duggars and Wallers load into the RV and depart for Indiana Dunes State Park.

  • "I tented one time as a kid in my backyard, and it was a horrifying experience," reveals Anna.
  •  "We had a raccoon digging at the end of the tent where my feet were, and it horrified me." David and Priscilla are veteran campers.

  • After setting everything up at the campground, Josh and David hop on a chartered boat to catch fish for dinner. But don't worry; Anna and Priscilla have packed extra food as a backup plan.

  • Josh and David hold a contest to determine who the best fisherman is. David catches a fish that weighs 7 pounds, 4 ounces, and Josh reels in a much smaller fish, which, according to Indiana state law, is too small to keep. 
  • "It doesn't really matter who caught the biggest fish," says Josh. "It just matters if we had a good time." The men take the fish back to their wives and cook it over an open fire.

  • As the episode comes to a close, Anna takes a pregnancy test. "My heart is definitely to leave the size of our family in God's hands, but I'm the fifth born, so that's at least a good start," says Anna. "That's a pretty small family," responds Josh.

  • The pregnancy test comes back negative. Anna is not expecting.

    "D.C. Duggars Hit The Road" Recap

    "DC Duggars Hit the Road" 

    • Josh and Anna and their kiddos gather clothing (60 outfits and 100 pairs of socks) and toys to prepare for their road trip in a 1998 RV. (Buy used, save the difference" is a Duggar mantra.)
    • "Growing up, my family had an RV," says Josh. "It was a blast. We really enjoyed it. As a father now, I want to be able to have our kids sharing memories."
    • Day 1: Josh attempts to start the RV and discovers that the batteries are dead. When the mechanics arrive, they decide to replace the batteries, which have just been replaced, and take the RV to their shop to run diagnostic tests. In a matter of hours, the vehicle is ready to go, and the Duggars depart on their road trip.
    • Josh and Anna stop at a fruit stand in Pennsylvania Amish country. The woman behind the counter is Mennonite and describes the differences between the Mennonites and the Amish. The Duggars spend the night at the Loose Caboose Campground. 
    • Day 2: Josh and Anna and the kids head to Gettysburg, where they are greeted by General Mike, who gives them a tour of the grounds. For Mackynzie and Michael, the highlight of Gettysburg is the big rocks that they can climb on. "Super big much fun!" shouts Michael with glee.
    • Next, the Duggars dress up in clothing from the Civil War era and take a family picture at a Victorian photography studio. The vintage camera equipment requires them to sit still for 13 seconds while the picture is processed. The photograph turns out great, save for Marcus's blurry face. 
    • Day 3: Josh and Anna elect to take the scenic route, which requires them to drive 20 miles-per-hour. Anna keeps the kids occupied by playing games and singing. They stop at the World's Largest Coffee Pot.
    • In the middle of the drive, the power steering suddenly goes out. "My family sort of has a history of mechanical failures on RV trips," says Josh. Between Duggar road trips and fixing cars for his used car lot, Josh is an experienced mechanic.
    • Day 4: The Duggars stop at the Topiary Park in Columbus, Ohio, and then head to the Indiana State Fair in Indianapolis. At the fair, the Duggars try a donut burger, which is a burger on a donut. "We've started our trip with vegetables and fruits to snack on, and now we've come to this," says Anna, chuckling.
    • Day 5: The family stops at a farm, where they watch the birth of a calf. "We definitely want to have more children, but watching the mama cow in labor made me thankful that I wasn't pregnant yet."
    • As they approach Chicago, the Duggars stop at Dell Rhea's Chicken Basket in Willowbrook, Illinois. Anna asks the waitress how the chicken is prepared and is invited back into the kitchen to assist the chef. They show her the technique but will not reveal the secret recipe. "I was a little disappointed that Anna wasn't able to get the secret recipe."
    • The road trip ends in Chicago, where Anna's sister Priscilla is about to have the gender reveal party for her second child. Tune in next week for more!

    "Jessa's Engagment" Recap

     "Jessa's Engagement"
    • Since Ben Seewald moved into the Duggars' guest house to work for Jim Bob, he and Jessa's relationship has been progressing much quicker than when they lived three-and-a-half hours apart. "The more I have gotten to know this man, the more I have fallen in love with him," says Jessa.
    • Ben approaches Jim Bob and asks for his permission to propose to Jessa, and Jim Bob grants it.
    • "I think you all will make a great couple, and I think the Lord is in this," says the Duggar dad. "You have Michelle and I's blessing."
    • Ben asks every Seewald and Duggar, including Josh and Anna, to be a part of the proposal. (Jill and Derick are unable to participate, but they stay in the loop via texting.)
    • To kick off his scavenger hunt proposal, Ben invites Jessa on a double date with Jim Bob and Michelle but surprises her by inviting his parents, as well. "Something must be up," Jessa says. The three couples head to Marketplace, the restaurant Jessa and Ben ate at on their first date. 
    • Jim Bob asks everyone to hold hands while he prays over the meal. Ben grabs Jessa's hand, even though Jessa and Ben have decided to save handholding until engagement. "That was actually the first time that we have ever held hands," says Jessa. "It was pretty special."
    • Josh and Anna surprise Ben and Jessa by arranging to pay for the meal. The server brings a gift for Jessa, the first gift that Ben has ever wrapped. He admits that the wrapping job is far from perfect. 
    •  "I couldn't have done better myself," says Jim Bob. "He's right," affirms Michelle.
    • Ben tells Jessa that the gift is the first clue to the rest of her life but tells her to wait until the following morning to open it. "I was dying to open that package," says Jessa.
    • The next morning, Jessa unwraps the box to find a tablet with a video message from Ben telling Jessa and Jinger to take an airplane ride with John-David to Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
    • Joseph picks them up on the other end and drops them off at a mini golf course. He hands Jessa a written clue that says she must get a hole-in-one.
    • After mini golfing, Jessa must board a trolley and identify pictures of Washington D.C. monuments, a task that symbolizes the trolley tour she and Ben took while visiting Josh and Anna.
    • Jessa's next task is to gather a dozen roses scattered around a park.
    • Meanwhile, the Duggars and the Seewalds head to Eureka Springs to decorate Thorncrown Chapel, a glass chapel in the Ozarks where Ben will propose to Jessa. The two families help Ben scatter candles and rose petals to prepare for Jessa and Ben's big moment.   
    •  Next, Jessa and Jinger join the Duggars and Seewalds for a train ride. Jessa was excited to see her families but was sad to find out that Ben wasn't with them. Michael Seewald, Ben's dad, stayed behind at the chapel to give his son a pep talk.
    • After the train ride, Jessa and Jinger meet up with Joseph, who chauffeurs them to Thorncrown Chapel. "Walking in there, I was totally speechless," says Jessa. "I felt like I was in a dream."
    • Jinger assumes her role as chaperone by sitting down at the back of the chapel to watch the proposal unfold.
    • "I trust you have had a wonderful journey today, but I trust by the grace of God that another journey is about to begin," Ben tells Jessa as she reaches the front of the chapel. He gets down on one knee and pops the question: "Jessa Lauren, will you marry me?
    • Jessa tears up as she gives her answer: YES!
    • Ben slips the ring on Jessa's finger, and the engaged couple shares a frontal hug.
    • "It's beautiful," says Jessa, looking down at her ring finger. The two grab hands for the second time ever.
    • "I am thrilled at the thought of spending the rest of my life with Ben Seewald," says Jessa.
    • They announce the news to their families and receive a lot of hugs and well wishes. "This proposal is setting the bar just one notch higher," says Jinger.
