She captioned it with, “Road tripping with my favorites! 🚙🛣 Excited to spend Thanksgiving with his family in Texas!🧡” Fans wished them well and one said, “Happy Thanksgiving !!

Fans react to Joy-Anna and Austin going to Texas – with some criticism
The Counting On couple won’t be with the Duggars this Thanksgiving, but Austin’s got family too. Most fans hoped they enjoy this special time. Of course, they wished them a “safe trip.” But there is always someone quick to come with criticism when it comes to the Duggar family. One person noted that Gideon, though strapped in, didn’t face backward in his chair. They said, “Please please turn Gideon back around 😭”
Well, an argument immediately erupted about people telling Joy-Anna how to raise her child. One person said, “I was waiting for one of these comments always as to be someone. Not every state has the same baby seat rules so please keep your rude comments to yourself.” Another agreed, saying, “Do you have people telling you how to raise your kids or what is right or wrong. no I don’t think you do so don’t worry about what she is doing with her child.” Many similar comments and counter comments followed, kind of taking away from the happiness other fans felt for Joy.
