After taking care of some unusual household chores, Kate and her eight are heading to the Big Apple.
In a new Kate Plus 8 special, Kate Gosselin takes twins Mady and Cara and her sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Aaden, Collin and Joel to New York City by train for some sightseeing, including a trip to the Statue of Liberty, Chinatown and Times Square.
While riding in a double-decker bus, Kate decides to stop to get ice cream – cookie dough, cookies and cream, vanilla or chocolate? – for the kids. Well, it's been a hot summer in NYC, and after scooping up eight cones, Kate, with production assistants Danny and Clark trotting in her wake, sprints in heels back to the bus as the ice cream melts. "It instantly started ... streaming down our arms, dripping off of our elbows and I thought, we will run or we will be handing the kids puddles."
The new Kate Plus 8 airs Monday (9 p.m. ET) on TLC.

Summer is a time to get things done in Kate Gosselin's household. "I'm home now, post Dancing with the Stars, here I go," she said during Sunday's double episodes of Kate Plus 8.
The first order of business: construction of a chicken coop and starting her own little egg farm. "I buy four, five, or more dozen eggs a week," she said. "That's it, we're getting chickens."
And so they did – with the help of Farmer Dave and Farmer Dan, who trucked in an easy-to-assemble coop for 16 chickens and one rooster.
The whole clan pitched in to help, a phenomenon Kate dubbed the "Farmer Dan Effect."
"The kids were willing to carry pieces of the coop and in no time all of those pieces were in the field," she said. "These are moments that make me very happy. The kids were suddenly very willing to participate ... It was a family event – we're putting together our chicken coop."

The Gosselin gang is about to get bigger!
On a one-hour special of Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin gets chickens for the family -- as pets.
And now that the supermom has hung up her Dancing shoes, it's time to get to work. "I don’t want to get wet," she says, as she pressure cleans the side of her house. "Whoa, I got wet!"
