I took many pictures this SimSummer, while visiting many different families. But none of them gave me enough pictures for a full story, so I decided to combine them and instead of giving you many small stories in many small posts, give you many small stories in one big post!
So here’s what the summer of 03 brought my simmies.
Warm days at the Abbott trailers
August 03 in Honeycomb Valley was a hot one. For the Abbott family this wasn’t much of a problem, since they needed to spend most of their time outside either way. So, the hot weather was appreciated.
Chantal and Jeffrey enjoyed the waterslide
And when Jeffrey was getting sick of his family, he went on fishing trips with his best friend Logan.
The eldest child of the Abbott family spent the summer days practicing his hobby too: picking up girls on the beach
Yes, that is another girl…
Evenings at the Abbott trailers were spent with barbecues, beer and tv in front of the trailer. Carmen of course attented too.
Obviously the hottub got put to use as well…
You better make sure little Matthew isn’t getting any half siblings there, Wes…
The Newmans in France
While Wesley was hopefully making sure of that indeed, his son was in France. Along with Anna, Henry, Jacqueline and family butler Regina.
The Newmans spent their summer at the house in Champs Les Sims. It was great seeing old friends again.
Regina got to come along because someone needed to cook…
…and take care of Matthew.
While the rest of the family spent their time swimming…
…horseback riding… (Anna and Jacqueline brought their horses)
…and of course getting friendly with the locals…
Yes, localS, plural…
…even the ones in steady relationships!
Esme and Finn
Back in Honeycomb Valley there were two teens who were not yet in a steady relationship, but had spent a great few weeks at Camp Windiwell earlier that summer: Esme and Finn.
Back home they continued to meet and they obviously still liked each other as much as they did before. Finn even got a bit of a romantic thing going and offered Esme flowers. Awww….
They did many fun things together. Like visit the new pool.
The new pool was very popular with other members of the Stevens family too. Esme’s dad Dylan decided to have his 40th birthday party there.
And Finn and Esme continued to meet. At the aquarium for instance.
At the end of this day, Finn decided to ask Esme if she wanted to actually be his girlfriend. She gladly accepted. Her sister was less amused by this news…
Alice and Simon
The youngsters of the town weren’t the only ones in love. Alice and Simon were enjoying their time together so much…
…they decided to move in together!
Across the road from Alice and Simon’s home, Simon’s granddaughter Ellie had a birthday! She was turning 5 in August and was ready to start school soon. But first it was birthday time!
The family was very happy to be celebrating her birthday!
Especially uncle Zach…
And 3, 2, 1…
Crossed eyed toddler growing up to be…
Of course a birthday means cake!
And some little girl dancing!
Hope everyone had a happy summer!
