Anna Duggar from 'Counting On' Enjoys Quality Time with Her 6 Kids as They Go Fishing
Enjoying the nice weather to the fullest, the former "Counting On" star Anna Duggar took her kids for a fun fishing trip to a local pond. She gave fans a glimpse into how their day went in an Instagram post.
Anna Duggar and her big brood had a nice plan to enjoy the beautiful weather in Arkansas. The former "Counting On" star took her kids to a nearby lake to catch some fishes.
In an Instagram post, Anna shared that it was a last-minute plan to go fishing since the weather was perfect. Apparently, her kids competed against each other to see who could catch the most fishes.
OUTSMARTED BY THE FISH
Sadly, the siblings could not catch a single fish so the little competition ended up in a tie. Nonetheless, the kids seemed to have enjoyed their time.

Sometimes when the weather is nice you’ve gotta change plans and go fishing! 🎣 We had such a nice time at the pond earlier this afternoon. The brothers 🧑🏼👦🏼👦🏼 and sisters 👱🏻♀️👧🏼👶🏼 competed against each other and ended up with a tied score... The girls and boys each caught a grand total of... 🥁 0! I guess the fish outsmarted us this time! 🐠 🐟 • • • #littleduggars #Mackynzie #Michael #Marcus #Meredith #Mason #Maryella #Duggar #fishing #childhoodunplugged
The youngest member of the family, Maryella Hope Duggar, joined her older siblings Mackenzie, Marcus, Mason, Michael, and Meredith.
Anna got pregnant with Maryella just eight months after her son, Mason, was born. She is the 16th grandchild of the Duggar family matriarch and patriarch, Jim Bob and Michelle.
THE UPS AND DOWNS
Josh is the oldest son of the Duggar brood. He met his wife in 2009 when she was still a teenager. They met for the first time during a Christian homeschooling convention.
Josh and Anna were living a happy marital life until 2015 when the news of Josh's sexual scandal from the early 2000s broke out. That was the year when Anna learned that her husband had molested girls, including his own sisters, as a teenager.
"I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation."
After that, the former reality star resigned from his position at an NGO called the "Family Research Council." His parents admitted that they tried to guide their son towards the right path after they found out about his wrongdoings.
Since then, Josh has mostly stayed out of the limelight. He went to counseling sessions to correct his behavior and also went to rehab. That is how he has been able to make his marriage with Anna work.
