Counting On: Road Trip Tips from Jessa Duggar Seewald
There are a lot of reasons Jessa Duggar Seewald and her husband Ben Seewald of Counting On might have opted out of this trip. A long trip with one child is hard enough, but when you add two more into the mix—it’s nothing short of interesting. But if you’re used to having as many children in tow as the Duggar family did, it might not seem like that much.
Jessa said that her mom always had a road survival kit. She used to pack everything from aspirin to different toys. She said there was always the possibility of a blowout, so extra clothes are always in the kit.
One of Counting On tv series’ Jessa Duggar’s hacks for making sure kids are clean when they arrive is to not get them dressed. The kids stay in their pajamas until around ten minutes before they get to where they’re going. And then they pull over, change the kids, and make sure everyone is looking good.
Jessa Duggar: Surviving the Long Car Ride
Ben from the show Counting On and Jessa’s son Spurgeon says he likes long car rides. In fact, he said he enjoys singing and snacks. It looks like Jessa Duggar’s strategies are working out well.
After being on the road for a little bit, Jessa broke out one of the wrapped toys. Jessa of Counting On that airs Tuesday nights at 8 pm on TLC had wrapped some of their toys up, so they could open them on the ride. Spurgeon thought it was pretty interesting, but Henry didn’t.
The ride did seem like everything went well. Ben and the family had fun singing and the kids were enjoying their snacks and toys. And when they got to their destination, they were very happy to see their friends.
Counting On: Jumping for Apples with Ben Seewald
Ben Seewald from Counting On had a great time at the apple picking place. He was going to pick the apples up off the ground, but they learned quickly that was a bad idea. The apples were on the ground for a reason. And Ben decided he was going to jump for it. He didn’t have much luck, but they did finally get some good apples.
The other outing the family went on with their friends was the Zoo. Even though it is a massive zoo and there is a lot of walking, it seems they did well. Jessa Duggar from Counting On was even nursing Ivy while they were walking around. She says she doesn’t like to hold everyone up, so she can walk and nurse.
The kids stayed with the parents Ben and Jessa most of the time. But there was one point where Henry ran off from the group. All in all, the trip was a success.
