Blueberry Island – Fall 2 – Burke

Hi all!

Here I am with the second to last update for the second fall on Blueberry Island! This time we’ll visit the Burke family, where last time Angie and Amin got married and threw the first (wedding) party on the island. To earn a bit more money, Amin found a job in Music while Angie got her pet store up to level 4. She also got pregnant, and gave birth to baby girl Madison at the end of the season.

1i

This is what the Burke family looks like right now, Angie and Amin with their daughter Madison, and let’s not forget Mittens, their awesome cat!

2i

Angie started off the season by changing Madison’s dirty diaper. She did so with love!

3i

In the mean time, Amin paid their taxes, which amounted to $2,800.

4i

It was Thursday, and Amin had the day off, so the couple enjoyed a nice breakfast together.

5i

Not much later, Angie went over to Angie’s Animal Emporium to do some work.

6i

Once there she invited over Amin to help her by being the cashier.

7i

Withing minutes of opening the store Angie got her silver restocking badge!

8i

The store was doing quite well, and together they managed to get it to level 5.

9i

Back home there was enough work to do as well. Amin fixed the broken toilet (which could also use a bit of cleaning…).

10i

I always find the 20 best friends LTW a bit annoying, but I do want to fulfill it for Amin, which shouldn’t be too difficult. I figured it was time for him to get cracking with that LTW, so it was time to make some new friends! Here he greeted Juan Reamon.

12i

Danielle Lillard walked by at the same as well, so Amin greeted her as well (since his chat with Juan went awry straight away).

13i

In the mean time Angie spent some time with little Maddie.

14i

Ooh, it’s James Harris! He’s a member of the new family in town. Let’s greet him too!

15i

That evening it was also Madison’s birthday, and Amin and Angie thought it’d be nice to have their guests celebrate it with them. They all cheered Maddie on enthusiastically!

16i

Oh wow, she has red hair! I thought her eyebrows were red when I first saw them, but later I got convinced they were brown. Yay for recessive genes!

17i

Here’s Madison post make over. She’s really cute and seems to be the spitting image of her father. Her personality is 10/1/5/9/10. The poor girl is extremely shy! But also really nice. I love her already!

18i

Neither Angie nor Amin were in the gold at this point, so Maddie had to make do without Smart Milk for a little while.

19i

Amin became friends with Danielle, but the evening had been a bit too hectic for him to get to know the other two guests. He’ll try again with them later!

20i

Madison woke up very early the next morning, so she played with her bunny head for a bit until her parents woke up.

21i

Hey, look, it’s Mittens! He (she? I don’t remember) seems a bit confused by the suddenly grown up Maddie.

22i

Amin played with Maddie for a bit that morning before he had to go to work.

24i

After Amin had left for work, Maddie tried to get attention from her mother, who was playing chess. She seems to be quite a needy toddler; she kept following her parents around instead of playing by herself.

25i

After playing some chess to earn logic points, Angie got into the gold and made Maddie some Smart Milk. She had to go to sleep after that, though, so no use could be made of it right away (but yay for the Smart Milk effect).

26i

Amin got a promotion that day! He’s now a Coffee Shop Sound Engineer.

27i

After talking to some friends on the phone, he taught Maddie how to talk.

28i

And right after that she also learned how to go to the potty! Progress!

29i

That night: a burglar!

30i

The police arrived really quickly, before the burglar had the chance to steal anything, which is good.

31i

Amin found it imperative that he make his bed before checking out what was going on.

32i

The burglar won the fight with the police officer… But he didn’t take anything, so I don’t really care about that. We’re one burglary closer to another spot in Law Enforcement!

33i

The police officer seems sad. As he should be.

34i

After checking on Maddie, Amin and Angie went back to sleep, despite being quite shaken up.

35i

The next day Amin invited Juan over to become friends with him, as he had the wish for it.

36i

Angie spent some time with Maddie, who was also a little shaken up by the events of the previous evening.

37i

Mother and daughter became best friends!

38i

Amin fulfilled his wish of becoming friends with Juan, and then went to work, thinking about how awesome best friends are.

39i

In the afternoon, Angie invited over Julia and asked her to babysit Maddie while she went to work at the store.

40i

I decided to decorate the store a little bit more, both inside and out. It looks cute!

41i

Angie hired Amber Dawn (the same girl Eric Robinson had a date with earlier this season) to help out at the store. At some point I want to hire actual playable Sims (teens, preferably), but I first want to figure out how that would affect their main lot.

42i

After the first basic sell, Angie earned her gold sales badge! I’m afraid to use the Dazzle option now, though, since it worked so crappy for Andrew Bigfoot.

43i

I forgot Angie didn’t have any cashier badges… She earned a bronze one quickly, but she did have a few impatient customers. Luckily there was no throwing of bags.

44i

Apparently, Amber irritated Julien Cooke during her break, so he complained to Angie about it…

45i

Business went really well, and the store quickly reached level 6! After a trip to the energiser and one last round of restocking, Angie went home.

46i

When she got home she chatted with Julia for a while, thankful her friend had agreed to look after Maddie for her.

47i

And then I figured it was time for a little furniture upgrade!

48i

Amin got promoted again! He’s now a Summer Camp Music Teacher.

49i

Angie spent the evening teaching Maddie how to walk.

50i

When they had put Maddie to bed, Angie and Amin had some “quality time” together on the couch.

51i

They were still giggly about it the next morning.

52i

And they had something else to be giggly about a little later! Did I hear a lullaby…?

53i

Except for a LOT of ACR action, nothing much happened that day and the next photo I’ve got is of the evening, when it was time for Madison to grow up!

54i

Yep, she definitely takes after her dad.

55i

She gave her mum a big hug and squealed when Angie told her there were new clothes in her newly decorated room.

56i

Here’s a close up of Maddie! She really is a cutie. I love those blue eyes, and I’m still stoked about the red hair.

57i

After excitedly checking out her new room and clothes, Maddie went to bed.

58i

Amin played with Mittens for a while before going to bed. Mittens hasn’t been featured that much this update and that makes me feel guilty. He/she is such an awesome cat!

59i

Maddie bonded with Mittens before school the next morning. Look at that cute little face! Mittens definitely needs more screen time.

60i

Maddie then decided to help out her mother, who wasn’t feeling very well, by cleaning Mittens’ pet bed.

61i

Angie spent the morning playing  chess…

62i

…and throwing up.

63i

Hey, look, it’s Owen walking by with Lemon! :-)

64i

Amin got promoted once again, this time to Battle of the Bands Judge.

65i

Maddie’s fun was in the orange when she got home from school, so she played some Sims 3 before asking Amin to help her with her homework.

66i

Which he gladly did for his little girl!

67i

Angie got her first baby bump!

68i

Maddie wanted a womrat, and I figures it would make sense for her to have one, since her mother owns a pet store. Its name is Dobby!

69i

Mittens was very intrigued by this little furry creature…

70i

In the evening, Angie maxed Logic!

71i

I later moved Dobby to the living room because he kept waking up Maddie.

72i

And that’s it for the Burke family for this season!

I hope you enjoyed the update, Happy Simming!
