Kate Gosselin and her eight kids packed up and headed home from their Bald Head Island, North Carolina beach vacation yesterday, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Kate and the kids had the help of her bodyguard and good friend Steve Neild in getting them and their mountain of luggage to the ferry, but it was not without its tense moments.
As the kids gets older and the luggage gets heavier, trips like this -- even with all the help from the Kate Plus 8 TLC crew -- can be a little overwhelming.
But over all, the family appeared to have had an exceptionally good time during their getaway. Now it's back-to-school time for the kids.
Next up for Kate is an appearance on the Emmy Awards telecast August 29.
