The first season of Bringing Up Bates comes to an end this week and it's really upsetting. But luckily, the show will end on a very happy note, as Kelly and the kids throw a surprise 50th birthday party for Gil!
And luckily, when you have as many kids as the Bates do there's a lot of people to help with the preparations. While Kelly and Gil are away on a romantic overnight, the kids get to work, with the older girls helping with the decorations and Lawson even writes a song for his dad!
Watch the clip above to see the start of the Bates' party prep, and tune into the one-hour season finale on Thursday, March 26 at 9pm on Up TV.
