'Jon & Kate' in Wilmington, then back to reality

Staff writerAugust 11, 2009 

The Kate portion of "Jon & Kate" continued on the family's Bald Head Island, NC, vacation in last night's episode. Viewers were treated to some cute beach playtime featuring the kids, but also some sad moments where the kids talked about missing their dad.

Unlike the previous week, last night's episode was less about the family's vacation being invaded by paparazzi, and more about the kids just hanging out and being themselves. The major action involved visiting the Cape Fear Serpentarium in downtown Wilmington. Lots of snake handling...

Read Entertainment Weekly's take on the episode , including a priceless moment when grossed-out 8-year-old Mady returns home from vacation to ask Jon, "What's in your ears?!" That's right. Daddy has earrings. What man doesn't love trying to convince his 8-year-old that he is NOT having a midlife crisis?
