They may not be the perfect picture of the happy family, but at least there are pictures.
They may not have spent their 10th wedding anniversary together last weekend, but on Wednesday the troubled twosome were spotted playing with the kids outside their home in Wernersville, Pa.
However, signs of trouble weren't completely void from the Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars' festivities. Jon may have kissed the kids, but he wasn't getting that up close and personal with his wife, especially when he was sneaking off for a smoke. Kate also kept her vice—Starbucks coffee—by her side.
Still, everyone had their moment to smile, and we haven't seen that in a while.
The fun didn't stop there...at least not for Kate. Later Wednesday, the matriarch was spotted sans her hubby at Green Hills Inn, an expensive French restaurant in the area. She dined with a female friend and ducked out the back door, a witness tells E! News.
Promos for next Monday's episode of the family's TLC series promise a major announcement. "Recently, we made some life-changing decisions," Kate says in the clip. "Decisions that will effect every member of our family."
