Blueberry Island – Summer 3 – Robinson

Hi everyone!

I’m having tons of fun playing Summer 3 of Blueberry Island, so I figured it was about time I started updating again. Welcome to the new season! Last time with the Robinsons, Eric moved out to his own apartment, and Owen grew up to an adult. His girlfriend Meadow did so too, and he asked her to move in with him and his parents and soon after proposed. He also bought his own business: Owen’s Fresh Food Market.

1y

We start this season with Owen and Meadow being adorable, as always.

2y

Owen spent his morning taking care of the plants. His LTW is to top Law Enforcement, but at the moment there is only one unlocked position in that career, which is taken by Christy Walker. Therefore, Owen is unemployed for the while being.

3y

Julia paid the taxes, whch amounted to $7,800.

4y

Ben went to work in his ridiculous helicopter.

5y

Meadow paid a visit to Bigfoot Fashion, since she needed a wedding dress. The dress she already had was the same one her sister-in-law Gretchen wore at her own wedding during the previous season.

6y

She picked out a lovely white dress with pink accents. She couldn’t wait to show it to Owen the next day, when they were going to get married.

7y

Back home she called her friend Angie Burke to tell her all about it, and they became best friends.

8y

Meanwhile, Owen gave Lemon a bath.

9y

He also spent some time working out on the treadmill.

10y

In the late afternoon, Owen and Meadow practiced their first dance for a while.

11y

They went to bed early so they would be well-rested the next day.

12y

However, the following morning I decided to postpone the wedding one day so it would take place on a Saturday, and Owen’s oldest brother Adam wouldn’t have to miss the wedding because of work. So instead of preparing for the wedding, Owen went into the garden to tend to the plants.

13y

Ben came to help him. I don’t want him to do too much, because I want Owen to earn his golden gardening badge asap, but he can at least talk to the plants to make them healthier!

14y

Meadow spent the morning painting.

15y

It was a beautiful morning, so Ben took Lemon for a hike.

16y

Unfortunately, he accidentally walked through a patch of poison ivy…

17y

I expanded the green house, because we will need a lot more fruits and veggies for Owen’s store!

18y

It turned out to be a good choice to postpone the wedding because it rained all afternoon.

19y

Julia and Meadow spent some time together, and they got along splendidly. Julia was glad her son would marry such a kind woman.

20y

And then this happened. The tree caught on fire and wouldn’t go out, so I went to delete it, which often helps. Instead, the tree got deleted but the fire stayed… I wasn’t sure what to do next, but in the end I decided to quite without savind and replay that day (I last saved the night before).

21y

That evening, Meadow checked the weather forecast for the next day, and it told her there was no rain to be expected!

22y

Everyone went to bed feeling very excited for the next day.

23y

When Owen and Meadow woke up, they were still very excited, but also felt a bit disheartened because there was a thunderstorm going on outside.

24y

Owen started his day out in the greenhouse.

25y

Luckily, when the guests arrived that afternoon, the sun was shining again! The guests are Elijah Walker, Eric, Adam and his new wife Gretchen, and Nicole Dawson, who Owen befriended in the previous round.

26y

And then the ceremony started. Meadow was wearing a beautiful dress, and Owen looked quite snazzy as well.

27y

Everyone was very happy for the newlyweds.

28y

Owen’s brothers got up to clap and cheer for them. They were very proud of their baby brother!

29y

Wth the ceremony over, it was time to cut the cake. Meadow is a shover!

30y

Everyone had a wonderful time and agreed the cake was delicious.

31y

Adam and Eric had a great time goofing around together as well.

32y

Owen chatted with his sister-in-law Gretchen for a while, and I found out those two have THREE bolts. That’s awkward… But it being Owen I don’t see this turning into a scandal. Instead, I think I’m going to change Owen’s turn ons and turn off after the party.

33y

Lemon looked on curiously as the party went on, as Alegra did at Adam’s wedding.

34y

The party was a roof raiser!

35y

Owen then drank the Re-Nu-Yu Porta-Chug and changed his turn ons to blonde hair and Creativity and his turn off to red hair. That ought to fix things.

36y

“Well, Mrs Robinson, that was a wonderful day, wasn’t it?”

“Yes, it definitely was.”

“Want to make it even more wonderful?”

37y

I heard a lullaby!

38y

That night, after everyone had finally gone to sleep, a burglar came to the house. Normally, this is of course a bad thing, but this burglar is the sixth one, which means another position in the Law Enforcement is unlocked, which is exactly what Owen needs for his LTW!

39y

Luckily, the police arrived right away, before the burglar had stolen anything.

40y

Unfortunately, the burglar won the fight, but since he hadn’t stolen anything, I didn’t really care!

41y

Meadow felt hungry after the ordeal, and had a quick leftover burger before going back to bed.

42y

The first thing Owen did the next morning was look for a job in Law Enforcement. He was a bit disappointed when he couldn’t find one…

43y

He didn’t mind all that much, though, because there was plenty to keep him busy in the garden as well. And it was very rewarding too! He had some absolutely beautiful fruit to harvest that morning.

44y

And he earned his golden gardening badge that morning as well!

45y

Ben spent some time with Lemon.

46y

Owen also spent some time skilling for his future job.

47y

Meadow chatted on the phone with Nicole Dawson about how wonderful the party had been.

48y

She rolled the want to buy a pottery wheel, so that’s what we did! It’s a nice hobby for her, especially since she’s already into arts and crafts. I only let her have a go for a little while, though, because it drains comfort, which isn’t a very good thing for a pregnant lady (although she doesn’t know she’s pregnant yet herself).

49y

Instead, she had a nice long bubble bath.

50y

In the middle of the night, Meadow had her first pop!

51y

The next morning, Julia started writing another novel, a mystery novel this time.

52y

Meadow spent her day painting again.

53y

In the afternoon, Owen and Julia went to the store Owen bought at the end of the last season; Owen’s Fresh Food Market.

54y

The first Sim to come by was Adam!

55y

Soon more customers started to arrive.

56y

The store got a good review on the very day and a Best of the Best award as well! Julia and Owen got the store to level 1 before they ran out of stock, and then went home again. Selling all the produce in crates like that is going to take a lot of fruit and veggies. Perhaps I’ll have to rethink the crates and go for single pieces instead.

57y

Meadow had grilled cheese sandwiches ready for them when they got home.

58y

In the evening, Owen became friends with Gretchen over the phone. And they still have 3 bolts, apparently, or perhaps that doesn’t change unless they see each other?

59y

Either way, Owen loved Meadow and his brother very dearly, so that was never going to happen. He fell asleep feeling very content with his life as summer turned into fall.

And that was it for the Robinson family! I hope you liked the update, and Happy Simming!
