Lydell moved into the household. His traits are adventurous, genius, virtuoso, mean spirited, and party animal.
Caden and Latanya both had birthday parties.
They also both had midlife crises. The only wish Caden rolled was to change careers, but I didn’t want to let him do that because I was having fun with his daycare. Latanya’s wishes were much more modest. First, she wanted to get a makeover and meet someone new, so I assigned her some additional formalwear and sent her out to The Prosper Room to make new friends.
A couple of days later, she wanted to cut her hair, so I gave her a cute little bob.
In the middle of their crises, Latanya and Caden learned that they were expecting their first child.
When they simultaneously rolled wishes to marry one another, I sent them to the Butterfly Esplanade for the proposal.
Latanya held her bachelorette party at The Prosper Room. It was a fun night with lots of dancing.
The next evening was Caden’s bachelor party at the Banzai Lounge.
It was nice to see Mellissa there. I tried to get her to give a toast, but the action kept cancelling out, so Caden gave her a big hug instead.
The party dancers found a quiet moment away from the guests to enjoy some of the food Caden had brought with him.
Thanks to a slight miscalculation I’d made about Latanya’s due date, the groom-to-be had to leave his bachelor party early to join his fiancée at the hospital.
A few hours later, Jaylen Holcomb-Marks was born, with the favourites songwriter music, goopy carbonara, and spiceberry. I gave him the good and loves the outdoors traits.
Caden and Latanya got married at the Bogaard Overlook. I kept the guest list short because I wanted to show off the seated ceremony that was first introduced with this expansion pack, and that almost always becomes a routing disaster with larger parties.
The smaller scale also meant that for once there was enough wedding cake for everyone.
Albina and Lydell didn’t attend the wedding. Albina and Caden really don’t get on, and the couple had something of their own to celebrate anyway – Albina’s first pregnancy.
The next household member to experience a big life change was Timothy, who aged up and, as part of his midlife crisis, wished to change jobs. I fulfilled his wish by moving him into the politics career track, which was fine by me because I don’t really care for all the meetings sims in the business career have to hold to stay ahead.
Albina gave birth to a little vampire, Cassandra Borges-Rake. Her favourites are R&B, ceviche, and lime green. I have her the athletic and friendly traits. Caden and Latanya took Cassandra and Jaylen out for a stroll.
They arrived home just as an enormous meteor was about to collide with their front yard. I don’t think I’d ever seen this happen before!
Caden was badly singled, and his poor wife was crushed to an untimely death. Albina obviously found this hilarious, braving the midday sun to run outside and laugh at them.
But because Latanya has the unlucky trait, the Reaper wouldn’t take her, and she was restored her to her family.
