This post is brought to you by UP, but thoughts and opinions are my own. Did you tune in last week for the season premiere of Bringing Up Bates on the UP Network? This docu-series is unlike other shows you’ll find on television. It’s wholesome and positive entertainment for the whole family. The series follows Gil and Kelly Jo Bates and their large family – all 19 kids! The Bates’ memories have been filmed by a camera crew, but they still focus on making each moment with one another count. The Bates family has captured marriage, birth and all the precious quiet family moments of family while letting us all share in the fun. Tune in Thursdays at 9pm ET on UP! The boys and I enjoyed catching up with the Bates family during the premiere last week. I also chatted along during the Twitter party with Bates fans. It’s so hard to find a quality show that the entire family can enjoy, but thanks to the UP network that’s become a whole lot easier. As TV’s trusted home for families, UP promises to tell their stories in away that is relatable, genuine, positive, but most of all fun and entertaining.
