Duggars at the Magnolia Silos 2.0

One year (almost to the day) after their 2017 trip to Chip and Joanna Gaines' famous Magnolia Market, the Duggars traveled back to the Waco Silos. This time, some of the younger children, as well as Josh, Anna, Michelle, Josiah, Lauren, Grandma Duggar, and Aunt Deanna, went along.

For those who haven't heard of Chip and Joanna, they are the stars of HGTV's Fixer Upper, which aired its series finale last week. Have you seen the show? Have you been to Magnolia Market?

  1. Nice pictures! I live in the pacific NW and would love to visit Texas and enjoy a stop at Magnolia Market and The Silos.

  2. Looks like the Duggars had a good time. It's nice they let Jana's friend Laura travel with them

    1. Laura is with them all. the. time. And of course, nobody from the family takes a second to explain why that is, if she's living with them, if she's been hired by them, or what. Leave your loyal viewers wondering...or worse, gossiping!

      Delete
    2. I thought she was hired to help with the kids now that so many of the older ones had married and left the home. Of course the internet likes to speculate otherwise.

    3. Why is it anyone’s business as to who Laura is or what her involvement is with the family?

      Delete
    4. Lol, they owe you absolutely nothing! You can gossip all you want, that's between you and God.

    5. it has been mentioned before that laura was hired to help with homeschooling. this i believe explains why she is always traveling with them. however, i would like to see laura & john-david as a couple

      Delete
    6. I agree, it would be nice if Laura and John David got together. I doubt it would happen though since it hasn't already.

    7. The Duggars seem to pick and choose the information they want us to know; which is their choice. It's human nature for us observers to be curious. They seem to be an open book when a Duggar is about to give birth; but silent when a random friend is consistently with them!

      Delete
    8. Anon @ 3:58 While I agree with you on the family being allowed to pick and choose what information they release it seems very calculated to me. The more vague they keep things the more questions people ask, people talking keeps social media and blog sites busy, and fills up tabloid magazines, which in turn keeps the family in the public eye which is good for business!

    9. Why doesn't Michelle teach them like she did with her older children?

      Delete
    10. Well, I believe Michelle taught her children until they were old enough to learn online themselves and teach the littles. Now, the older girls, sans Jana, are out of the home so they brought in Laura to assist in teaching the littles. I guess the older boys aren't allowed to teach their siblings. The whole family dynamic has changed.

  3. Where is Josie??

  4. Mason is SO CUTE! And he's getting so big! It looks like they had a lovely time.

    1. I love seeing all of the sweet pictures. Seems like Mason looks so similar to Mackenzie, when she was his age. But, if my memory is is wrong. They are all beautiful children with such precious smiles.

    2. Mason is big brother Marcus double.

  5. What are the silos?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It looks like one in back of the truck and Josh's family.

      Delete
    2. A silo, is a dome shaped building, which farmers use, to store grain.

      Delete
    3. Yes, but what's the story with these silos, and why are they a tourist attraction, restaurant, and shop?

      Delete
    4. "The Silos" is a business establishment in Waco created by Chip and Joanna Gaines of the TV show "Fixer Upper." I believe it's a home goods/furnishing store, restaurant, cafe, and play area. There are huge signs for it off I-35 which runs through Waco in central Texas.

  6. Is Anna pregnant or just wearing a loose top because they are comfortable?

    1. I wondered the same thing!

      Delete
    2. I was wondering why Ben is sitting with his arm like that. It doesn't look natural. I'm not trying to start any rumors, I just thought it looked odd...

      Delete
    3. Very good question.

      Delete
    4. I vote for comfortable.

      Delete
    5. Her little bootie shoes look really odd with a skirt. When they lived in DC her fashion sense really changed and she always looked stylish, now she had reverted back to she used to dress, a little bjt frumpy, but then she is a momma of five little ones there isn't always time for yourself!

      Delete
    6. She’s had 5 kids in 8 years. Give the woman a break!

      Delete
    7. More babies! :D

      Delete
    8. Probably not pregnant. During pregnancy they wear tight tops.

      Delete
    9. I really think Ben’s arm to to hide Jessa’s pregnancy. They probably haven’t announced it because of all the other baby births and reveals, and Ben and Jessa don’t want to take away from other joyous announcements. It needs to be announced in a special way for them, so they are just waiting.

      Delete
    10. 9:34 Jessa and Ben are known to tease the fans. Remember them hinting about twins with the other pregnancies? Don't believe anything until it is official. They may be trying to fool us.

  7. Time 4:12PM
    I must have read about It on FB page & No never seen the show. So happy to see photos of the family.

  8. Ben shouldn't have his hat on at the table.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Or his elbow on the table, unless like someone else said he's trying to hide Jessa's midsection.

      Delete
    2. Or he's leaning in closer to his woman for the picture....

      Delete
  9. Lovely Family pictures however, "Chip" there (I forget his name) should show respect and take his cap off at the table! Wear it the way it's suppose to be worn as well. Josh and Anna's children are so sweet looking.

    ReplyDelete
  10. This must have been a stop on the way to or from the Vuolos family baby gender reveal. I'm assuming it will have been filmed by TLC, wonder how they will prevent Josh from being seen this time?

    ReplyDelete

    1. They've had the sun flare cover-up and the don't-pan-that-far cropping, so I'm sure they'll come up with something or somewhere for Josh to stand. Maybe every time they tell him to move over, it will be a good reminder for him to behave himself in the future.

      Delete
    2. It is called editing and setting up the shots. And maybe, unlike so many of other Duggars, he had to work and had to stay home since he no longer gets a TLC pay check.

      Delete
    3. Anon @ 10:38 I take it you haven't seen the pictures of Josh and family at the Silos or the other photographs of them all at the Alamo? He was on this trip, and since when have any of the Duggars used work as an excuse to not travel somewhere fun?

      Delete
    4. Josh was there.

  11. Love Chip and Joanna Gains wish there show was still on !

  12. Can the girls wear shorts like the guys?

    I can’t believe the Duggars were in Waco again and I missed them!! Will I EVER get to meet them??!!

    1. They’re there about once a month. So if you went there every day for a month your chances would be good.

  15. yes I have been there a tourist attraction. two hours to wait for a one cupcake no thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Great pictures and it's great to see Josh, Anna, and the children on the trip as well. And little Mason looks a lot like Meredith in that photo too.

    ReplyDelete
  17. So nice that they had a great time there. It's one of my favorite places. 😊

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm just amazed that Josiah and Lauren are hugging....considering how the older couples had to have an entire person inbetween them all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Why does this family go there so often? How many times can you see the same old thing? I doubt they are friends with the Gaines. They seem to suck up to them, though.

    1. Magnolia Table is new plus the store changes with the seasons. Why not stop there if they are going to Texas to see Jinger?

  20. I am not a fan of commercial tourist destinations. I'd rather visit sites of historical significance. My favorites have been the beginning and the end of the Lewis and Clark Trail, Pearl Harbor, and the Laura Ingalls Wilder sites in South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa and Missouri. Our next road trip will include Civil War National Parks and the Helen Keller Home in Tuscumbia, Alabama.

  21. I'm wondering now if Jessa had a miscarriage. There were reports all over the place earlier this year that she was spotted in person and definitely looked pregnant. Now she doesn't look pregnant, and there was no baby news. I wonder if something happened, and if they'll ever speak of it? Being so high profile, she could speak honestly and help other women going through something similar.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think she had a miscarriage but if she did she might not want to talk about it just now or at all. While she might be a 'personality' it does not automatically mean she wants to speak out, and that goes for anyone in the public eye going through something like this or an illness they have every right to keep medical issues private.

      Delete
    2. I think the whole "Jessa is pregnant" rumor was just that, a rumor. To speculate that she had a miscarriage is just that, wild speculation. I also recall many past rumors that Cousin Amy was pregnant, yet so far, all of those rumors have come to nothing.

      And I don't think Jessa is obligated to disclose a miscarriage. I don't buy into the idea that just because she's on TV means she shouldn't expect ANY privacy at all. She chose not to have her first kiss in public either.

  22. It would be great to have an update on cousin Amy!
