Jon and Kate Gosselin are living separate lives on Jon & Kate Plus 8 Monday night. The couple normally takes turns with the children but this time split the children into two groups. Read more on their adventures below.
On Jon & Kate Plus 8, titled “Battleship & Barber,” Jon took his 8-year-old twins Cara and Mady to a local amusement park, while Kate took their three sons, Collin, Aaden and Joel on a battleship near Bald Head Island, N.C.
Jon, who has been overseeing the renovation of the kitchen at their home in Pennsylvania, said, “It was nice to see my girls. I hadn’t seen them in a really long time.” Jon seemed to enjoy spending time with them. “To have them come back, it was like, ‘Now I have someone to talk to,’ ” he added. “It was nice to have some company again.”
The trio went to a nearby arcade and amusement park where Mady and Cara’s different personalities really stood out. “Cara’s an outdoor girl and Mady’s an indoor girl,” said Jon. While Cara and her dad navigated an elevated rope course, Mady stayed put watching them from below.
“I’m not into climbing up and down nets and rock walls,” she said. “I don’t like being really, really, high, and that seemed really high.”
Jon seemed to be having a great time at the amusement park,especially driving some go-karts. “It was fun,” he said. “I wish they went faster — like super fast.”
Kate and the boys toured the U.S.S. North Carolina battleship, including the engine room, kitchen, sleeping quarters and ammunition room.
At one point, when navigating a particularly steep staircase, Collin told his mom he wasn’t afraid. “Mommy, boys are tough,” he said. When Kate then asked, ” ‘Are you going to take care of me some day?’ ” he, of course, answered, “yeah.”
Kate’s trip attracted the paparazzi, and as the children pretended to play with the ship’s gun,Kate jokingly told them to aim at the photographers, labeled the “bad guys.”
Kate ended her trip to the barbershop and then treated them to ice cream. Reflecting on their day together, Kate said, “My favorite part was seeing you guys in little sailor hats. It made me cry. Yes, it did. Mommy’s cry. Yes, they do.”
