Blueberry Island – Winter 2 – Walker

Hey everyone!

It’s been a while, but I’m back with an update for Blueberry Island! This time we’ll be visiting the Walker family. Last time, Christy worked her way up the Law Enforcement career ladder, and Jake finally achieved his LTW of becoming a Celebrity Chef. Caroline grew up to a teenager, and Hannah to a child. Andrew spent time at his business, but also achieved permaplat status through the genie lamp. And that’s pretty much it!

1l

So here we have the Walker family. From left to right: Caroline, Andrew, Jake and Christy with Rachel standing in front of them, Hannah (sitting) and Elijah.

2l

Caroline’s PJ’s match her room! I still can’t believe how gorgeous she is, by the way. She’s one of my favourite Sims on Blueberry Island.

3l

Andrew paid the taxes right after waking up. The family had to pay $9500.

4l

Am I the only one who finds it hilarious when married Sims are scared by their spouses’ nakedness? You’ve had four children together, for crying out loud.

5l

Christy became best friends with Stella Harris over the phone, which gave her a nice aspiration bonus before going to work! Plus, I like my playables to become friends, it gives a sense of community.

6l

Rachel and Hannah played some catch before school, and Hannah found out her OTH is Sports.

7l

Then everyone left for work and school, and Jake and Andrew headed for Bigfoot Fashion to do some work as well.

8l

While working, Andrew and Ivy Copur became best friends! I really like Ivy Copur, but I don’t think I’ve ever married her in… Maybe Elijah will like her when he grows up?

9l

The store reached level 9 before the two headed home again. Obviously they were very happy about it. :-P

10l

Back home, Jake started writing a cookbook. You know, Celebrity Chef and all that.

11l

Elijah and Caroline played their usual game of Red Hands after school. It was a Friday, though, so no need to do their homework right away afterwards.

12l

Insteads, they spent some time with their hobbies, thereby fulfilling some wishes.

13l

Christy came home with a promotion to Lieutenant! Another step closer to her LTW!

14l

Hannah also had a good day, as she had gotten an A+.

15l

I added a tiny extra bathroom upstairs at this point, since two bathrooms for a household of 7 is hardly enough.

16l

The younger girls played together after school as well. They weren’t friends yet, and I wanted to be before a certain even that evening…

17l

Rachel’s birthday! Hannah cheered her on, but was sad too, since she’d lose the only playmate she had left.

18l

“Cool, check me out!”

19l

Rachel is a Romance/Family Sim, which is an interesting combination. She wants to become a Celebrity Chef, just like her father, which is now possible in this town, also thanks to him. I also think I’d like her to start a bakery at some point, which seems suitable for an LTW like that.

Her turn ons are facial hair and charisma, her turn off is Plantsim, and she’s straight. Also, look how gorgeous she is! Elijah’s face certainly looks good on girls (she’s his clone).

20l

Jake rolled the want to have another baby immediately after Rachel grew up, but that’s not going to happen. Nuh-uh.

21l

Apparently the dishwasher couldn’t handle all the cake plates, so it broke and Andrew had to fix it.

22l

“Good morning! Nice bathrobe, sis!” Caroline was excited about having another teenage girl in the house.

23l

The girls became best friends while talking about their interest in Games, but then Rachel really had to make her back. That’s what you get with 10 neat points.

24l

Hannah wanted to do her homework right away when she woke up, so that’s exactly what she did.

25l

Christy needed some Cleaning points for her next promotion, so she spent the morning skilling.

26l

I bought the family a TV because I want Rachel to earn Cooking points quickly (and they have more than enough money anyway).

27l

Hannah and Jake played together outside in the snow, having an awesome snowball fight. Jake figured he should spent some more time with his daughter since she was now the only child in the house.

28l

Brunch was an eventful occasion this day: Andrew (and his 10 Cooking points) ruined the pancakes, Elijah received an Arts and Crafts hobby plaque, and Hannah and Andrew became best friends.

29l

Caroline played chess with her little sister. She had already maxed her Logic skill, but wanted to max her Games enthusiasm as well.

30l

I was once more astonished by Rachel’s beauty!

31l

She wanted a date, and since there aren’t yet many datable teenage boys on the island, I let her call the match maker.

It was only later, when I was lying in bed one evening, when I realised I wasn’t allowed to call the match maker, since calling Services isn’t allowed yet on the island. Whoops! Won’t happen again. I’m gonna let Rachel keep her conquest though. You’ll see why.

32l

She got George McCarthy! I love him!

33l

They’ve got two bolts together! I’m not saying this is the guy she’ll marry, since she’s a Romance Sim and all (although Family secondary), but who knows! Let’s see how this date progresses…

34l

They went up to her room, but unfortunately they didn’t seem to get along very well. At first.

35l

He responded well to her flirting, although they both stopped rolling wants for each other after a little while. Except for the always present “Take Out for Dinner”, which will never stop annoying me.

36l

After that first chat that went wrong, everything else seemed to go right, however, so these two both ended up with crushes, and a friendship.

37l

They got an end-of-date peck as their first kiss. Rachel immediately rolled the want to be best friends with George, so we’ll see how this goes! I’m excited about it!

38l

In the meantime, Caroline got the maximum Games enthusiasm she wanted.

39l

Jake got to drink some elixir because I didn’t want him to grow old yet. I still have to figure out some kind of system, but I think I’ll let every adult have 2 or 3 sips of the elixir. That’s what I did with Julia as well, I think.

40l

I let Rachel work with the candy making machine (the Culinary career reward) after everyone else had gone to bed. I don’t really liike it though. It’d be much cooler if the boxes of chocolate would end up in Sims’ inventories, so they could sell it at their stores or something. Does anybody know if there’s something like that I could download?

41l

The next morning Jake and Andrew took the teens to Walker’s, to work in the restaurant and earn some badges, levels and perhaps money.

42l

For some reason the teens kept wearing their outerwear inside, and it bugged me.

43l

It got quite busy pretty quickly!

44l

Caroline had some trouble with keeping the plates balanced.

45l

Jake kept stopping working as a chef, which was very annoying. Customers started leaving and losing stars.

“Dad, come on! Stay focussed!”

46l

Elijah earned his gold sales badge!

47l

How sweet, Peter Ottomas is taking his mother out to dinner.

48l

The family got the restaurant up to level 7, and then Elijah and Rachel needed some sleep because they couldn’t use the energiser. The rest sat inside and chatted for a while as they waited.

49l

Back home, everyone enjoyed the rest of their Sunday.

50l

Rachel wanted to go on another date, so she invited George over again.

51l

really like them together. And this time they do keep rolling wants for each other.

52l

Yep, they’re really into each other. However, after making out, Rachel rolled the want to make out with 3 different Sims. I guess we’ll just have to see how things go. But I do want her to have his babies, so we’ll keep him around, lol.

53l

The rest of the family just had a nice and relaxing afternoon.

54l

Andrew really likes to make lobster — when left to his own devices he often goes and prepares one.

55l

He still doesn’t seem to have perfected the process, though…

56l

That evening, Caroline went out with her friend Randy London. She even asked permission! She had the want for it, and I rarely let my teens do those things, so I figured why not?

57l

Christy maxed Logic, which made her platinum for work the next day.

58l

Caroline came home past midnight after having a wonderful evening. She had some left over spaghetti as a snack before heading off to bed.

59l

George left a telescope as a date gift for Rachel! I’ve decided to put those things in the inventory of the Sim for whom the present was meant.

60l

The next morning, everyone talked about their hobbies with each other, as is customary in most of my families.

61l

Then it turned out the kids had a snow day, so Hannah happily went outside to build a snowman.

62l

Jake went over to Julia’s Fruits and Veggies to buy some food, since the fridge was empty when he wanted to prepare breakfast. Julia was busy heartbarfing over some townie. Multiple times.

63l

When Jake came home, Stella Harris called, so they chatted for a while.

64l

…And then he could finally prepare breakfast.

65l

Caroline worked on her Charisma skill. Like I said in a previous update, she seems like and Entertainment kind of Sim, so she’ll need those points!

Her LTW is to have 50 Dream Dates, but she hasn’t rolled any wants for dates yet, so I’ll start on that later. Perhaps even when she’s an adult.

66l

Christy came home early from work with a promotion because of a good chance card! She’s now a SWAT Team Leader.

67l

She could go right back into work, so I let her.

68l

Rachel maxed Cooking!

69l

I’m not really sure what I’m going to do with Andrew. I don’t really want to work on his LTW anymore, especially since Eric Robinson has the same one (5 top level businesses). Plus, he’s already permaplat because of the genie. I’m also not sure if I want to let him grow old already, though. But he’s become a bit boring…

70l

When Christy got home from work she did some yoga, because she needs two Body points for her next promotion.

71l

Ben visisted in the evening, so Jake chatted with him for a while.

72l

Elijah made himself some Grilled Cheese for dinner. He hardly eats anything else, because of his secondary aspiration.

73l

In the meantime, Jake, Caroline and Rachel had some healthy salad instead.

74l

The following morning Caroline finally rolled the want for a date!

75l

But first, it’s time for school.

76l

After Christy left for work, Jake and Andrew went to Bigfoot Fashion again.

77l

This session seemed to be the “be lost in annoying places” session, though, which was really frustrating.

78l

They went home again quite quickly, because, frankly, I got bored and frustrated with the store. All in all they didn’t even gain any stars.

79l

Caroline’s first date might have to wait until next season, as she still had to do her homework and it was her youngest sister’s birthday that evening.

80l

The girls played some Red Hands instead. Which wasn’t as much fun as a date, but still quite enjoyable.

81l

This family was the first one to get a TV on Blueberry Island, and now they also have a game console. Hannah made good use of that after school.

82l

Rachel had the want to serve some food, so I let her make crepes suzette. :-)

83l

After setting food on fire she played some catch with her brother (who doesn’t seem to feature much this season).

84l

Christy got promoted to Police Chief! Yay, that means she has only one more promotion to go until she’s achieved her LTW! She also brought home Mary Gavigan, with whom she’s now best friends.

85l

That night, as promised, it was Hannah’s birthday!

86l

She’s cute! She’s going to need a make over, though.

87l

Here she is! She’s a Fortune/Romance Sim, who wants to become the Hand of Poseidon (top Oceanography). Her turn ons are Plantsim and athleticism, and her turn off is witchiness. I’m pretty sure she’s straight, but I could be wrong.

And she’s so gorgeous! Jake and Christy make really pretty girls! Although Elijah isn’t bad looking either. But those girls!

88l

After her make over Hannah played some video games with her mother.

89l

Jake got home from work with a $25,000 bonus from a chance card, which he (I) decided to donate to the university fund, as this family is already very rich.

And that’s the end of the season for the Walker family! I hope you enjoyed it, and Happy Simming!
