Jill Duggar Gets an Unexpected Visit from Jim Bob & Michelle (PHOTOS)

duggarsJill Duggar and Derick Dillard (and their baby boy, Israel) might be on the other side of the world in El Salvador right now doing missionary work, but their ties with the rest of the Duggar clan are still super strong -- as a recent visit from Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar proved!

There was plenty of speculation back when Jill and Derick first moved away about whether or not part of the reason they were leaving was to get away from all the scandals that have plagued the Duggar family over the past year or so. But the couple seemed thrilled to see Jill's parents (who were no doubt equally thrilled to see their adorable grandson): 

Awww, how cute is that little guy?? Derick even wrote about the reunion on the family blog:

Jill’s parents surprised us recently with an impromptu visit for a few days. It was great to have them with us and get to show them the work the Lord is doing here. Israel just turned 10 months and now enjoys eating fruits and veggies. Some of his favorites are bananas and avocados. He weighs a whopping 23 pounds and is cruising everywhere! We’ve had to baby proof our house, adding cabinet locks and outlet covers that “Grandma C” (my mom) sent down. Israel definitely enjoyed all the attention when Grandma and Grandpa Duggar came to visit.

No doubt! After all, Grandma and Grandpa do have quite a lot of experience with babies under their belts:

So sweet! With everything this family has been through -- and no matter what you think of them -- it's nice to see them come together and spend some quality time. Here's hoping 2016 is a more mellow year for the family!
