Jon takes kids and girlfriend to Poconos for Father's Day

Cameras tagged along on Jon and his girlfriend Erin's day with the kids Sunday at a retreat in the mountains.

In honor of all the daddies out there, I'm re-running this video, one of my very favorites about kids and their dads. I am blessed to have a dad like this in my life. Happy father's day.

'We' didn't script Father's Day at The Poconos. What gives? Funny how the paparazzi knew where to find them, isn't it?

Jon Gosselin had his kids for Father's Day weekend, and Sunday they all drove to a nature preserve in the Pocono Mountains, RadarOnline.com has learned. Along for the ride -- Jon's new girlfriend, Ellen Ross!

PHOTOS: Jon Gosselin & His Kids Take In Nature On Father's Day

Jon and Ellen packed the kids in his van and drove two-and-a-half hours to a private retreat in the picturesque Poconos. They strolled along nature trails and explored several ponds.

During an interview on the Today show earlier this month, Kate revealed that she and Jon, at least for the moment, have a civil relationship.

Thanks Admin.

Being a Dad is a lifetime of uncertanty but a series of pleasures. When they are young, they grab your heart and every emotion. As they get older, the teen years are trying and we've spent the formative years giving them legs. Now we're supposed to give them wings.

It's a daunting job. They strengthen our hearts as young people and test our resolve as they get older but the one thing they can't do is strip away an unconditional love that only a parent can have for a child. It's found no where else in life.

The reward, as they put us through the roller coaster of parenting is when they finally grow up, come back and show you the same affection and love you gave to them throughout their lives.

My daughters hand written note to me today, in her fathers day card was as follows:

"I love you so much Dad!!! Happy Fathers Day. You have always had my back and I thank you for that. I love you more than you will ever know.

I cried when I read it. She's a young mother now and fully appreciates what a parents love for a child is.

My two sons gave me a card. The oldest son said:

"Dad, when I look at you, I hope I can be the father you are, the decent person you've always been and the role model to my children that you have always been to me. I love you Dad.

My youngest son wrote to me: Dad, You're the Greatest "Farter" I have ever known." Just kidding Dad. You mean the world to me."

So, with that said, I'm proud of my kids and had a wonderful Fathers day. I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world.

Happy Father's Day to all the loving fathers out there!

At least he was there spending time with his kids, the sheeples on ROL had him still in LA...now with these new pics it can say gotcha

To my dad who raised 10 kids and never asked for a handout, Happy Fathers Day!!!!!!!!!! = )

fidosmommy said...

I lost my dad 2 years ago. He was old fashioned and private. He had the weird notion that it was his responsibility to earn the money we lived on. He died at the age of 95 knowing that all 4 of his children loved him and the 2 who survive him miss him terribly.
He taught me to work hard for everything I have and to always tuck some of my paycheck away, even if it's only a few dollars. He knew about rainy days. He showed me responsibility by being responsible. I loved him for so many reasons, not one of which has a thing to do with vacations, fancy gifts or a big house.

cherier1 said...

Kelly - What a fabulous post! Loved it & loved your kids' words to you!

Happy Father's Day to my dad, one of the 'Greatest Generation' who always did what needed to be done, never complained and never let on how hard it was. He raised 8 great kids, 4 after our mother passed, and set an example that was extraordinary in these times but not for men of his time. I miss you. I love you. I wish my kids could know you.

Boston Bonnie said...

Kelly. You've obviously done something right!

I actually wonder if the Pocono pictures were candid shots and not necessarily ones taken by the paps.

Linda in NS said...

I tried to post earlier but it must have gone to cyberspace. I thought Jon's girlfriend's name is Ellen. Is Erin somebody new?

Anonymous said...

I've thought for a long time now that the family is not allowed to take trips unless TLC is filming. That's why when TLC was not allowed to film, the kids didn't go anywhere.

And you would've thought after all the harping about the cancelled trip to the Empire State Building that the family would have figured out a way to travel there. But no. No filming = no trips.

Anonymous said...

BTW, the anonymous comment at 6:16 am was heather. Wouldn't let me post by name.

The only trip I can think of that wasn't filmed was the Disney trip in Calif. But maybe Disney refused to pay them for the infomercial?

____________________________________________

I can so relate to your post! I lost my father 8 years ago. There's not a day that goes by that I don't remember something he told me or remember those special father daughter moments we had. He taught me to drive, to ride a bike and we always did a yearly fishing trip together (even the year before he died). He gave me something that is more valuable than free fancy vacations, expensive toys and matchy, matchy clothing. He gave me his love, his guidance and his company.

Kate Gosselin Wants Primary Custody

In yet another instance of family-related drama, Kate Gosselin has finally lost her patience with ex-husband Jon and wants primary custody of their eight kids.

According to a source, the “Jon and Kate Plus 8” mommy is worried for her children’s welfare and doesn’t want them spending time with their dad.


“Kate finally just snapped! Jon makes no secret of his boozing, and there have been reports about him using cocaine and marijuana.”

“Jon seems to think having fun and partying is more important than being a good dad. She said, ‘Jon’s behavior sickens me. I’ve had enough!’ She wants primary custody of the kids — NOW!”

Anonymous said...

TLC looking to stir the pot--again. They keep trading wooden spoons with katie. If miz katie WERE planning on filing I'm sure it would be sprung on Jon as unexpectedly as possible giving him no time to prep for anything. It's be an ambush not leaked to the press.

TLC is disgusting the way they trash him all over the place just to keep Kate's name in the papers.

Administrator said...

I saw it and guess what, Kate already HAS primary custody. Primary custody is where the children live. They live with her. If they are mixing up the terms, guess what Kate has physical custody too! Jon has what appears to be weekend visitation rights. So I don't know why she would be filing for something she already has. I call BS.

I think the whole story is ridiculous and I'm waiting for a more credible source.

Administrator said...

Jon has a RIGHT to see the kids I'm sure Kate has been told that. If he is doing drugs around the kids she should get herself immediately to family law court to get his visits MONITORED. I don't see any filings....crickets.

This story is really quite libelous.

Linda in NS said...

Oh Kate just put that out there because she is so pissed that Jon and his girlfriend take the kids out and the kids have fun with them. ANYTHING to keep Kart's ugly mug in the news.

Just sayin.. said...

How libelous is the story if TLC is the one putting it out there?

Judy said...

Just watched a video on INF Daily of Jon and the kids on Fathers Day.
I don't think this was planned, as Jon was not too friendly or happy to see the camera.
What caught my attention was ..as the camera snapped away, the little boys were covering their eyes.
How sad that you can't even walk out of your home without cameras going off in your face.
Give these kids a break !!!

K8SUCKS said...

Well, I wish we didn't see ANY pics of Jon + the kids on Father's Day - hopefully this is the only one that was taken. Take note how the girlfriend is dressed : no boobs hanging out, no hooker heels (altho I hope that she is wearing shorts under that shirt?tunic?dress? thingy).

Anon @6:22 : I would be willing to bet that the CA Disney trip will be part of a future epi. The kids do not go anywhere unless it is filmed, K8 does not do anything fun with the kids unless it is filmed.

IDModo said...

I agree about the story being libelous, Admin!

I have been thinking for a while now that the day Jon starts to get his act together this would begin to happen. The leaked videos of Jon and Hailey are part of the plan.

This comes on the heels of Kate saying her greatest fear is that she would be seen as a bad mother and a judge would take her kids away; now Jon seems to be putting together a little family unit including a girlfriend who stays out of the limelight and appears to get along well with the kids. They participate in simple family type outings and have fun.

Kate and TLC don't want there to be a viable alternative to Kate's total possession of the little money makers.They are afraid that what Jon is providing for the kids, a relatively normal life,will alienate the children and show Kate in an even worse light (if possible).

If Kate has evidence of her allegations, of course she should file for supervised visits.My belief is that if Kate started a mud-slinging war in court,Jon could have plenty to say about her parenting, including rumours of her drinking and treatment of the kids. So far he has not played that card but if push came to shove he might do so. Therefore- no filing, just innuendo and smear campaigns.

Most mothers have a fear that something might happen to her children. Kate fears that something might happen to HER.Her fear IMO is probably justified.

Just my humble opinion said...

Kate is alleging Jon does cocaine. I don't think so, look at the size of his belly. Most coke/crack heads are very, very thin. Doing beer maybe but not cocaine.

IDModo said...

P.S. Jon is also apparently re-introducing his kids to his side of their extended family, and they have also seen Jodi and Kevin while with Jon.This really threatens Kate's complete control of the input the kids get about family members.

I think Jon has been getting some very good advice from someone recently about how to remake his image as a good father.

Does anyone know what job Ellen does for the PA government?

I Have Questions said...

IDModo said...Does anyone know what job Ellen does for the PA government?

Is this relevant to anything regarding the filming of the Gosselin kids in some way?

IDModo said...

I don't know, that's why I asked the question!It seems that Jon has been making a number of better choices since Ellen came on the scene. I was wondering if she has a background in child development or works in a job that involves knowledge of child welfare in any way.

mama san said...

careful look, I believe Ellen is wearing a swim cover-up. I hope this one is a keeper.

I Have Questions said...

Difficult as it is to imagine, there are some things about the Gosselins we really don't have to know.

I Have Questions said...

I'd like it if Jon's girlfriend doesn't become the subject of morbid curiosity. I know that's asking a lot. Couldn't she just be left out of the equation?

IDModo said...

There are lots of things about the Gosselins I didn't really have to know- Colin's impacted bowel, Kate's boob job,films of potty training,etc.,etc. I don't think my question about Ellen was in any way out of line. She appears to be a good influence on Jon and to sincerely like the kids.I applaud her desire to stay out of the limelight.
But I think when you are dating a public figure, people will be curious, as I am. That doesn't mean I need an answer, but I do have a right to express my curiosity.

I Have Questions said...

"There are lots of things about the Gosselins I didn't really have to know- Colin's impacted bowel, Kate's boob job,films of potty training,etc.,etc."

Yes, those were dark days, being forced to watch and read about all the Gosselin goings-on, and now having to post about it all over and over again, reliving each moment. Yes, indeedy.

Not sure how bringing up gossiping about Jon's new girlfriend brought Collin's bowels and Kate's boobs into the query, but it's all related somehow in this bizarro world.

Troy Chula Vista said...

Has anyone seen the "Story" in OK magazine? Complete rubbish about Kate finally having a man. The cover is so full of BS. The inside story indicates she is "looking for a Salt N Peppa Man" Puleeeeease! The magazine quotes "inside friends". Who in the hell is her inside person? She has only 2 friends (jamie and steve). Oh well, more hype BS. I guess she is worried her star is fading if she is in "rag" magazines crying about love. Also, the rumor that she wants a dating show, again, puleeease! ANY show with her and men looking for love is complete BS. The hardest thing will be to figure who is mugging for the cameras the most.

IDModo said...

I give up. I thought I asked a relatively innocuous question, to help me gain some understanding , and suddenly I am a morbid gossip-monger. It was my understanding that this was a blog where people could ask questions about anything that pertained to the subject of the Gosselins, as long as they were asked respectfully and did not trash anybody.
If I am wrong about this, Admin, please enlighten me as to the parameters.

K8SUCKS said...

IDModo - your question was fine - simple curiosity, nothing more, nothing less.

kelly said...

iDModo
I didn't see anything in what you wrote being out of line. Just my humble opinion

Nancy said...

iDModo
If either one of them did not want their private lives discussed on blogs or anywhere else for that matter they would step out of the limelight and give those kids some peace. So I personally think until that happens anybody is justified to ask or wonder about anything they please...

Just my humble opinion

Nope, she won't be and it's by her choice. Anyone who involves themselves with Jon or Kate knows that people are going to ask questions.

Thanks everybody! I thought what I wrote was OK.

WTF. Mom appropriate? I don't think so.

Yes, that is a hooker outfit.

So glad that you re-ran it! I loved it the 1st time and it makes me remember how much I miss my Dad, who was all of what the vid portrays. It is really beautiful.

AuntieAnn said...

She must getting low on cash again.

PA Mom ALSO said...

"Yes, that is a hooker outfit."

Not only is it a hooker outfit, they're hooker eyes. What did she do to herself, and WHY? I'm not a prude, but good gosh, woman, who or what are you trying to snag? You've taken it to the next cheapness level.
Isn't it funny that BB (before boobs) we never saw her exposing herself, and then presto, she gets the not-a-breast job, and they're everywhere, all the time?

mommyinca said...

Kate's eyes look frozen in this picture. Eye lift or Botox?

Kelly said...

HOLY CRAP!!!! What MOM goes out to run errands dressed like THAT!!!!

The look on her face reminds me of Jack Nicholson in "The Shining"

She might be auditioning for an open casting call at Scores.

Kelly said...

That's a hungover look if I've ever seen one.

CJ said...

Oh, yeah ... those latest Gossip Center pics. She's walking to her 'street corner' in Reading. That sure is normal attire for a mom of eight, count em eight. Maybe if she had the flip flops on it wouldn't look so sleazy.

mommyinca said...

CJ~ that's exactly what I thought too. I've worn a halter top like that (although not with my breasts pouring out) and shorts with flip flops on hot hot days.
It just seems to me that if you were JUST in the tabloids with a headline story of "bodyguard advises Kate on boob job" and you admit to reading the tabloids every single day, but you deny having a boob job, then WHY WHY WHY would you go out in public with boobs 3x the size they were than when you started the show? (hanging out no less?)

mommyinca said...

(last post for now, I promise) but isn't that the uniform for Hooters?? (I'm dead serious)

AuntieAnn said...

mommyinca,
That's just what I was thinking. Interview at Hooters maybe? And of all days to forget to wear her Foster Grants.

Ditch the Shoes! said...

I don't understand why someone -- ANYONE -- doesn't tell her that high ankle-strap shoes make her legs look twice as short and three times as chunky. Does she ever look at photos of herself?

cj said...

She doesn't have the personality for Hooters. Her tips would suck.

PA Mom ALSO said...

"(last post for now, I promise) but isn't that the uniform for Hooters?? (I'm dead serious)"
----------------
I haven't been to Hooters recently, but the last time I was in there the gals were wearing very short orange shorts and white tank tops. Has their uniform changed?

IDModo said...

Anatomically, wearing spike heels throws your chest forward (I just tried it and laughed my 67 year old ass off! Please don't send me to The Home...)Those shoes were probably borrowed for Kate's S&M video, coming soon when all other publicity fails.Flip flops would have made the outfit much more appropriate.
If I were Mady or Cara I would be mortified!What IS that woman thinking???

Carolina Gal said...

That one pic, she seems to be hoping for a role in Avatar 2. She looks 'creepy' in that pic. And if those aren't the fugliest shoes I've ever seen....wait, they are the ugliest. Not to mention, Kate doesn't have the body type for those shoes. She looks like a drill sergeant. She doesn't know how to dress classy, that's for sure! That pic is burned into my brain, make it go away!

Carolina Gal said...

You do have to wonder, does she even HAVE a full length mirror in her house??? Oh, that's just fugly, fugly, fugly!

Nancy said...

So I say this comment as someone who absolutely loves shoes especially high heals.. I live in Canada and my winter boots are either high heal boots or flip flops lol I have 2 teenagers who regulary bug me that I can only walk in heals I have sprained my ankle twice in running shoes.... Having said all that I ONLY wear the sexy ones when I am dressed for a date with my husband AND my 14yrd old daughter would not let me leave the house in shorts and heals or at least would have no problm telling me I looked stupid!!!

The image that Kate is trying and failing to portray is confusing at best and down right wrong at worst and it makes the costumes she wore on DWTS even more ridiculous. She doesn't even look like herself in those photos

French Canadian said...

Kelly,

I think Kate is out of money, it is a new night job to support her 8 children.

For sure, she is doing what she needs to support her kids. Must love them very much ;)

mama mia said...

Kate should have taped a condom to her forehead to finish off that white shorts/black halter top/S&M shoe boot ensemble.
Okay Kate, we get it, you need attention, when the cameras turn toward Ellen and Jon it makes you do scary things to your appearance. Grinding blue eye shadow into your eyelids isn't going to help, nor is tying a halter behind your generous neck to push out the inflatables going to work. Lose the hooker clothes and work on your inner self, the one that is bitter and angry and constantly shouting out for attention.

PA Mom ALSO said...

In all seriousness, I don't think that Kate knows who she is. She supposedly wanted to dress modestly for DWTS, so as not to embarrass the kids. Then she turns around and flaunts herself in the trashiest way possible when she's out running errands. She wants to be known as the mom of eight who will do anything for her children and says she prefers to stay home with them, bake cookies and write books of love and faith.

On the other hand, she can't give up the glitzy/celebrity lifestyle that she came to know and love in California. She's a mixed up gal and can't seem to find herself or know what image she wants to portray. She can't be both the single stay-at-home Mom, the quintessential happy-go-lucky middle-aged suburban gal, and the Rodeo Drive shopaholic. It just doesn't work that way, at least not in Wernersville, PA.

I wish to heaven that she would find a happy medium somewhere, seek therapy so that she knows who or what she is. Right now she has no identity, and for the sake of her children, that's sad. When Hollywood/paps throw her to the wind, she's going to need her family and whatever friends she has left to be there for her and pick up the pieces. She'll be dropped like the proverbial hot potato, and I think the ones who are going to suffer the most will be the children.

Judy said...

If Katie Irene was my daughter, I'd lock her in the closet, then I would run and admit her to the nearest mental ward.
I really do think that she is sick. She needs help badly.
She looks like she just got rode hard and put away wet !She must be the daily joke around Reading.

I lost my dad 2 years ago. He was old fashioned and private. He had the weird notion that it was his responsibility to earn the money we lived on. He died at the age of 95 knowing that all 4 of his children loved him and the 2 who survive him miss him terribly.
He taught me to work hard for everything I have and to always tuck some of my paycheck away, even if it's only a few dollars. He knew about rainy days. He showed me responsibility by being responsible. I loved him for so many reasons, not one of which has a thing to do with vacations, fancy gifts or a big house.

3. No insulting other posters or picking fights, refusing to let things go and move on. Stop with the snotty comments--they will be rejected. Treat people here like how you would talk to the person you most respect in your life, it's just pleasant that way.
4. No trash talking other blogs/bloggers here.
