First of all, a thank you to Faye who left a comment on the last Sims Sunday pointing out that the Into the Future expansion pack includes grass rugs which you can use indoors, and garden all year round. I started by building a nice little attached indoor gardening area.
Then I expanded to an enclosed rooftop deck.
I sent Summer on a date with Mortimer Goth. He was quite taken with her. In fact, he presented her with flowers about eight times in a row.
Dude, enough with the flowers.
His pants, though!
Seven grew into a teenager. I gave him a futuristic haircut, and a spiffy new sci-fi uniform.
Technically he should probably be the heir, but I like Summer’s hazel eyes.
Somewhere along the line the game was updated with a new Romantic option: the Dip Kiss.
He’s totally into her.
I staged a very romantic marriage proposal, and then some random Sim wandered into the shot and would not leave. Oh well.
You want to look good for your wedding, don’t you, Summer? Better work at it!
The wedding was held in the back yard. I pulled the old plywood wedding arch out of inventory and set it up, along with some cheap chairs for the guests.
And FOR ONCE I remembered to put the bride in a wedding gown with full hair and makeup before the event!
I feel bad about breaking up the famous Mortimer and Bella, but he’s mine now!
He is having a good time at this party.
Summer was stoked for the wedding cake.
It’s pink inside! Pink wedding cake. I love it.
After the wedding, it was time to get down to the business of making another heir.
Mom, can we talk about this later? I’m kinda busy.
The next day, I introduced Mortimer to the family beekeeping business.
I also forgot to change Summer out of her hair and makeup, so she ended up jogging in the full war paint.
That afternoon, I snapped this shot of all my Sims studying peacefully. It was a nice family moment.
Like so many nice family moments in Sims 3, this one was interrupted by a sudden death.
RIP Robin! You died as you lived: sitting around in your mangy old underwear.
