DESCRIPTION:
(from TLC's press release, December 2014) Kate and the kids are back and bringing more controlled chaos in the new year. Starting Tuesday, January 13 at 9/8c, TLC premieres five consecutive KATE PLUS EIGHT specials, featuring a family trip to New England, house renovations, and the twins' 14th birthday. In the first two one-hour specials, Kate prepares her brood for a trip through New England to do some exploring and sightseeing. First stop is Plymouth, Mass., for an all-day immersion into the lives of pilgrims complete with costumes and a homemade dinner. After a fun-filled day living back in time, the family travels to Maine for some beach adventures including collecting crabs, checking traps for lobsters, rowing, and paddle boarding. The family even attempts rope climbing, but will Kate be able to overcome her fear of heights? The other specials follow the family as they celebrate the twins' birthday and undergo an extensive and stressful home renovation. The family also sets up a yard sale to raise money for a local animal shelter, which perfectly aligns with the birthday celebration of their beloved dog, Shoka. The specials highlight the highs and lows of raising a large family and continue to give viewers an in-depth look inside the lives of Kate and her eight.
