The Duggars are going Hollywood! Are at least they’re going to Hollywood. On Monday, October 7, Jana Duggar revealed that her family had finished their cross-country trek and landed in Los Angeles. After stopping to check out the Grand Canyon, they headed over to California to visit Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo.
The oldest daughter in the Counting On crew shared some sweet new family photos on her Instagram Story, revealing the family visited the Brady Bunch house as well as the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the handprints at the TCL Chinese Theater. This is the reality show family’s first time to the city after the Vuolos made the move in June, and it’s clear they’re living it up. Though Jinger recently reunited with some of the family in sunny Florida, she’s getting the chance to show her family around her new turf.
“SO thrilled to be in California spending time with @jingervuolo!! 💞” parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar wrote on their Instagram account. Not everyone made the trip, though. In the comments of the post, Joy-Anna Duggar commented that she, husband Austin Forsyth and their son, Gideon, “wish [they] could be there!!” And though her husband, Josh Duggar, and kids were there, Anna Duggar also didn’t make the trip.
Less than a week earlier, Anna’s family lost a relative. Her brother-in-law’s younger sister, Rebecca Waller, died in a car crash on October 2. While the rest of the TLC family was on their West Coast adventure, the soon-to-be mom of six hinted that she’d stayed at home to mourn with her sister and sister’s husband. “The memories our family made with Becca over the years will be cherished forever!” she wrote on October 6. “The reality of the brevity of life is a reminder to hold those we cherish close. Tomorrow is not guaranteed, so let’s love on those around us!!”
In the spirit of living life to its fullest, the rest of the family is soaking up every second of adventure during their California fun, whether that means going shopping for American Girl dolls at the Grove to celebrate Mackynzie’s ninth birthday or posing with Shirley Temple’s handprints.
