The pool party was a great success. It lasted for ten hours, and it wasn’t until the sun had almost set that my sims were left alone.
Shanon wished to have a baby. I have no say in this – it’s really all down to Nraas.
Seraphina got a reply to the love letter she’d written to Sammy.
The weekend arrived, and I decided to arrange a trip to the beach. Seraphina had a match, but everyone else was free, and they invited Sarah and Blaine along too. Unfortunately everything went a bit wrong! First, Sarah called to cancel, saying something had come up. When I focused in on her to see what could possibly be more important than spending the day with her sister, I found her doing this, on the other side of the same lot as my sims! (Beach towels are an Island Paradise feature, but this made me laugh too much not to share it.)
Next, I tried to have Selina play catch with Blaine. I guess there wasn’t enough flat space, because, presumably in search of somewhere to play, they got in separate vehicles and drove to completely different parts of town, before the action cancelled itself out.
Spencer and Shanon were completely oblivious to the problems I was having.
I gave up on the beach idea for Selina and Blaine, and had her invite him back to hers for a home cooked meal instead. She made his favourite, chili con carne.
That night, Selina removed her profile from the dating website.
The first day of Autumn arrived, and Moonlight Falls looked especially beautiful as the leaves started to turn golden.
I love to watch their colours change over the first couple of days – first to a yellowly ochre, then to a richer hue. Sims can rake the leaves into piles…
…or just take advantage of others’ hard work!
Seraphina continues to push herself at her job. Sometimes she gets stressed out and undergoes a feral change, but Sammy is a lot more at ease with her werewolf side than he was when they were younger.
Selina and Blaine are very cute together. Whenever I leave them alone together, he’s always complimenting, hugging, and kissing her.
While she was hanging out at Blaine’s house, Selina rolled a wish to travel. I added him to the household to let them have a little romantic getaway. I had originally planned to send them to Champs Les Sims or Monte Vista, but almost as soon as he moved in Blaine rolled a wish to visit Al Simhara. It was kind of an odd choice for two sims who love the cold, but at least since it’s Autumn they could get a chance to see Egypt out of the blistering midsummer heat. I ended up sending them for just a couple of days, but they managed to pack a lot in!
Selina and Blaine returned to find Seraphina and Sammy expecting a baby – a little brother or sister for Selina, Spencer, and Melyssa.
They had bought some gifts for everyone – cherries and pomegranates for Spencer and Shanon’s garden, and a snake charming kit for daredevil Seraphina (though perhaps she should wait until after she’s given birth to try it out!)
