I want to test out Grandpa's Grove as well as Roaring Heights so I have enlisted Mikezumi and Shannon's help ;) Mikezumi can't quite believe the hair and outfit I have given her but she will get over it ;) Shannon only got new hair and a new formal outfit because his everyday outfit is perfect for a farming life :) Mikezumi doesn't know it yet but the purpose of the apron will become clear to her when I have her try some canning and baking ;) By the time I done with her she will be a perfect candidate for the Country Women's Association :D

What better way to get to know your husband than to make funny faces :D They were only acquaintances at this point but they were husband and wife by the time I set them up with skills and LTRs before placing them as a household in a fresh save.

I don't know how well you can see the hearts against the tree but they are there :)

Mikezumi looks pleased that I have given her such a handsome sim ;)

A quick test of the tractor before saving them to the library :)

    Life on the farm
    Day 1

    Shannon and Mikezumi arrived in Roaring Heights (for the second time but this is the only one that counts ;) ). It's a good thing that Mikezumi is thinking about gardening because she will have a lot of that ahead of her :p
    28699125467_66089a25e5_o.jpg
    Only a few of the plants at the community garden were ready for harvesting and I didn't want herbs and a few of the other plants so Mikezumi and Shannon were able to harvest what was available quickly (it doesn't hurt that I maxed their gardening skills in my earlier set-up session).
    42869030474_2ddf0eebfb_o.jpg
    There are a lot of plants on the farm but they will be replaced with perfect ones as they become available. I gave Mikezumi one of the perfect apples harvested at the community garden so she could prepare pancakes.
    28699123997_c2e6b55fe2_o.jpg
    Shannon had a wish to learn the logic skill so I sent him to play chess while Mikezumi cooked.
    42869029104_76f60d5b6b_o.jpg
    Because they are both highly skilled the wishes were rolling in! Shannon, however, did not have the cooking skill because I had planned on Mikezumi doing all the cooking but I wasn't surprised he rolled a wish to learn cooking after harvesting plants.
    28699122107_cda399ea8d_o.jpg
    Although I didn't give Shannon cooking skills, I did give him the hidden child oven cooking skills so he leveled up to 3 as soon as he opened the cooking book. His first wish on learning the cooking skill was to learn a fish recipe. I gave him the recipe for fish and chips and it triggered a wish to cook a meal using freshly caught fish.
    42869026924_5775772335_o.jpg
    After preparing a couple of dishes for the fridge, Mikezumi joined Shannon at the fish pond.
    41778842130_e219144c07_o.jpg
    Shannon caught several large fish while Mikezumi only managed to catch an anchovy.

    Day 1 (cont.)

    Because I had kept them busy setting up for their new life in Roaring Heights, I sent Shannon inside to kiss his wife. In my Monte Vista save they got on beautifully and I didn't have to intervene and I wanted to see if the chemistry existed in this save. I let them go after the initial kiss and they happily flirted with each other :)
    41778841220_20956fd23a_o.jpg
    After a few flirts, Mikezumi tried telling a ghost story. I quickly tuned ghost stories out but the mood was broken and Shannon autonomously got on the tractor and fertilized the garden.
    28699118717_a984fc81da_o.jpg
    Mikezumi had a negative moodlet while watching the TV and I realized it was because they had a cheap TV.
    41778840490_e1cac53b76_o.jpg
    28699117337_8cd356cb12_o.jpg
    I went into buy mode and couldn't find a good quality TV that didn't look too modern so I settled on this one. It didn't have all the channels but at least no bad moodlets. I got Mikezumi started on a channel upgrade.
    41778862570_3ca57255ff_o.jpg
    Although I didn't take a pic, Shannon cooked fish and chips using one of the fish he caught earlier. It triggered a wish to level up in cooking so I had him use the canning station to improve his cooking skill.
    41778839290_3b5af8f996_o.jpg
    Mikezumi was very happy when they had Shannon's fish and chips for dinner :)
    28699115117_c4fcf65324_o.jpg
    They watched the stars after dinner :)
    43539832252_71d34cc957_o.jpg
    28699114027_fee9059cdb_o.jpg
    As cute as they are, I think they will be adopting some children in the near future ;)

    Day 2

    Since Shannon prepared Mikezumi's favourite, fish and chips, the previous evening, it's only right that Mikezumi prepared Shannon's favourite, pancakes :)
    42704241085_6a47694afe_o.jpg
    My SS talks too much like me! :D
    29738477898_2eb9368221_o.jpg
    But that's okay because Shannon is also a talker :p The reason I took those pics is because my sims only talk animatedly when a save is fresh or when they have just been added to a new household.
    29738477148_35a1dcfe04_o.jpg
    After eating fish and chips the previous evening, Mikezumi rolled a wish to prepare perfect fish and chips. She used the anchovy she caught the previous day and got her wish :)
    42704238625_6f8bab9e86_o.jpg
    There are a lot of plants in the yard and the tractors make fast work of it but it takes several sweeps with the tractor to get everything. Fortunately it fills the fun bar and would definitely be a lot faster than gardening by hand.
    42704236975_1f7071ff6c_o.jpg
    While Shannon tended the garden, Mikezumi visited the community garden to harvest eggs, cheese, steak and patties. When she was done I let her have her waking wish to catch an excellent fish :)
    42704239815_c34deddc0f_o.jpg
    Watch out Mikezumi! :o
    42704235335_011e3fe0f1_o.jpg
    "Hi honey! You just ran me over but I'll be fine!" ;)
    42704232555_a154457697_o.jpg
    Shannon also had a fishing waking wish :)
    42704232035_cdc7120d8a_o.jpg
    Mikezumi called Adoption Services :)
    42890842954_319bb794d5_o.jpg
    I went into map view and saw the Child Services sim approaching the house and got a popup asking what I wanted to adopt but as soon as I input my requirements the game crashed :( Fortunately I had saved just before the adoption call was made. When the save reloaded I used MC to adopt a little boy :) This is what arrived :#
    42704227825_43067e0f7e_o.jpg
    There is no way on God's green earth that this sim would be allowed to live in my household!
    42890842174_fa8f81086a_o.jpg
    I'd already planned Mikezumi and Shannon's future child and did a quick body swap in CAS :) Welcome Finnian :)
    42704233565_fbf6c841b6_o.jpg
    Wishes for Finnian were rolled and instantly filled :)

    Life on the farm
    Day 2 (cont.)

    Mikezumi, being family oriented, started on teaching Finnian how to talk because she can do it in record time :)
    42890841354_704261f96b_o.jpg
    Shannon went into town to register as a self-employed gardener :)
    42890838494_ce02d37b28_o.jpg
    Back at home, Mikezumi was making progress with the talking lesson :)
    42704225775_9586ff2c5a_o.jpg
    You'll scare Finnian with that face, Mikezumi! :D
    42890837494_272ee5b112_o.jpg
    By the time Shannon got home, Finnian could talk and he got the first chat :)
    42704225055_6eb887f576_o.jpg
    Shannon rolled a wish to potty train Finnian so I had him get started.
    42890836514_e67b5ec81b_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon hadn't had any alone time since breakfast so I had Finnian work on his peg box skills.
    41800960160_08961fb744_o.jpg
    They are so cute together and needed no prompting from me once released from their chores :)
    42890835594_ed4cdb161c_o.jpg
    I saw woohoo in Shannon's queue so followed them upstairs and discovered they had chosen the shower :)
    41800959670_8035e3a907_o.jpg
    Shannon must have enjoyed himself because he immediately rolled a wish to woohoo with Mikezumi :)
    42890834894_dfa7216ccd_o.jpg
    Shannon didn't get his wish straight away because it was time to eat.
    41800959170_1e04d18df1_o.jpg
    Mikezumi pureed some fish and chips for Finnian too. They are also his favourite meal :)
    42890834284_8aaa341e74_o.jpg
    41800958490_360bd9f669_o.jpg
    42704222315_f96f54e3cd_o.jpg
    I don't like what happens with dresses when sims sit but I didn't mind having to get close because Mikezumi makes the cutest faces!

    Day 3

    Although I had decided that Shannon would be the one to get Finnian up and ready for the day (he had the most wishes), Finnian was the first thing Mikezumi looked at :)
    43581468582_1fbbae5b04_o.jpg
    I think Mikezumi and Shannon are enjoying their late life family :)
    29759246628_de16edea31_o.jpg
    They enjoyed Shannon's favourite for breakfast :)
    41821048140_d9f3b653be_o.jpg
    Mikezumi's waking wish was to tickle Finnian. She also rolled a wish to potty train him.
    43581468012_14a1bce37a_o.jpg
    43581467382_5002a29afe_o.jpg
    41821046280_0e82355542_o.jpg
    She didn't enjoy this part of it ;)
    43581466892_8ab6df7abf_o.jpg
    41821045650_0e2dcd4001_o.jpg
    Since two tractors are needed to cover the whole farm, Mikezumi helped Shannon out :)
    43581466272_168b14cd87_o.jpg
    41821044770_5cc7605a67_o.jpg
    Because it takes a few sweeps with the tractors (watering, fertilizing and harvesting are done separately), Mikezumi left Shannon to it while she taught Finnian how to walk :) I am playing a longer lifespan in this game so there is no great rush to train Finnian but Mikezumi rolled a wish to do it and I am all about the wishes :)

    Day 3 (cont.)

    Shannon had a wish to level up in cooking locked in so I had him prepare more pancakes. He autonomously cleaned the counter when he was done :)
    41821041340_8e9d02beb3_o.jpg
    Mikezumi showed Shannon her gratitude ;)
    29759238538_2b2a394f28_o.jpg
    I was watching Finnian when I heard Mikezumi squeal. I don't think I have seen her do this before!
    41821040770_9b82125293_o.jpg
    29759237748_3640d7c14f_o.jpg
    Shannon chose the shower again. He must have been feeling a little dirty after all that gardening ;)
    41821040280_ce2a825b85_o.jpg
    Mikezumi has a wish to prepare 5 perfect meals locked in so I had her prepare some burgers.
    29759236848_05aa8fbe30_o.jpg
    While Mikezumi cooked, I had Shannon keep Finnian company :)
    29759236328_3a3ea1bf6d_o.jpg
    41821039070_d25ef03bb0_o.jpg
    I checked the commmunity garden and found that there were a lot of plants ready for harvesting so I sent the family. Finnian played with his teddy while Mikezumi and Shannon harvested.
    41821038430_228aac2185_o.jpg
    29759234358_789d538c4a_o.jpg
    43581458482_a48c11c52a_o.jpg
    I thought it was lovely that Shannon kept looking over at Finnian :)
    43581458052_f611a3143d_o.jpg
    The family had fish and chips for dinner again. There are 10 servings in a group meal but they will have more variety now that there is another mouth to feed and they have more perfect produce :)
    43581457402_ff7dfa15b7_o.jpg
    29759232228_63eb38d8e2_o.jpg
    Shannon rolled the first stroller wish! :) I was surprised he went through the garden rather than through the front gate.
    43581456802_d7c9d3907f_o.jpg
    I didn't let them go far because it was dark and they don't have neighbours.
    41821034700_457b70789c_o.jpg
    Mikezumi prepared some lime marmalade while Shannon and Finnian were on their stroll :)
    42911742514_8a82c0d0fc_o.jpg
    They watched the stars when Shannon got home :)
    42911741774_87ceaae9f6_o.jpg
    Mikezumi played with Finnian until he maxed the xylophone then tucked him in for the night :)

    Day 4

    Shannon and Mikezumi must be finding parenthood tiring ;)
    41841048910_0098a75253_o.jpg
    Mikezumi got Finnian up and ready for the day while Shannon made the bed :)
    42932001374_468985ae80_o.jpg
    Shannon didn't complain about having pancakes again ;)
    41841047920_f1ef621f55_o.jpg
    Mikezumi's waking wish was to kiss Shannon so I got that out of the way before sending them out to garden.
    42932000494_b249ac01c8_o.jpg
    I took aerial shots of the farm to give an idea of how many plants the tractors are dealing with. This shot shows most of the apple trees but there are a few more in the backyard. I believe Shannon harvested just over 200 apples this morning.
    42931999614_98b16969bd_o.jpg
    There are also bell peppers, garlic, potatoes, tomatoes, watermelons and onions in the garden.
    42931998594_930cb62723_o.jpg
    There are more on this side of the house but the view is obscured by the tractor's harvesting effects.
    42931996984_4cb380da86_o.jpg
    I saw Mikezumi and Shannon approaching the same corner and wanted to see if they would crash
    42931997494_a7360768ee_o.jpg
    But they just missed ... that's what I call perfect timing! :p
    43602053592_a13c0d30d1_o.jpg
    When Shannon was done he autonomously went inside to play with Finnian :) The gardening took less than 2 sim hours and they sold over §2,600 worth of produce.
    I imagine this amount will be more than tripled when the plants are replaced with perfect ones!
    41841046830_7e5756b6da_o.jpg
    Both Shannon and Mikezumi had wishes to use the stroller. Shannon went first since he was already playing with Finnian :)
    43602051832_005ef24b0a_o.jpg
    43602050792_a8611027be_o.jpg
    When I checked on Shannon a little later I found him carrying Finnian so I sent him home.
    43602049352_94f6d58d02_o.jpg
    When I realized Finnian would be on his own while the gardening was being done, I bought him a dollhouse.
    43602046552_2fbcfc8dcb_o.jpg
    Mikezumi rolled a wish to play a game with Shannon. There was no way I was going to buy her a ball! :D
    43602045852_f2f63a01dd_o.jpg
    Shannon's waking wish was to buy a new recipe so I sent him to the bookstore where he met Dyno Marks.
    43602044792_aaf08b7f57_o.jpg
    Mikezumi got her stroll while Shannon was at the bookstore.
    43602047492_8132068623_o.jpg
    When Mikezumi got home I had them adopt another toddler. This is what arrived.
    43602048522_79ef67e524_o.jpg
    He's far from pudding but definitely not my cup of tea!

    Day 4 (cont.)

    This is Moss after his body swap in CAS :) I had meant to use another sim but couldn't find him in the bin. I checked my files later and he was there but it was a small file size so I suspect I may have moved (from my pre-Australia sim files) his toddler file instead of his YA one.
    28761121717_faed913dc2_o.jpg
    The door was open on the previous shot because Shannon had just come home and was autonomously about to teach Moss how to walk :)

    Day 5

    Shannon got Moss up and ready for the day :)
    42767554155_536fa8aaea_o.jpg
    Mikezumi did the same for Finnian :)
    42954291694_87261d9820_o.jpg
    Shannon didn't get his favourite but he must have liked the French toast because he rolled a wish to learn the recipe. Needless to say I didn't lock in that wish because it would take him forever to reach level 9 in cooking!
    42767553395_6a661c880c_o.jpg
    Mikezumi harvested while Shannon watered.
    42954290654_8f63a6e5d7_o.jpg
    42954290014_990c16280e_o.jpg
    Moss continued with his peg box skills while Finnian did what he wanted since he has mastered his skills.
    29800582248_1639864db0_o.jpg
    Once again I saw Mikezumi and Shannon approaching the corner at the same time. The nose of Mikezumi's tractor did pass through the water tanks on the back of Shannon's tractor but it wasn't that obvious.
    42954314324_0ce31cd031_o.jpg
    29800581178_ef3dfc9098_o.jpg
    Mikezumi had a wish to attack Moss with the Claw. When she got her wish she rolled the same for Finnian :)
    43624116072_f38aba745c_o.jpg
    Mikezumi finished off Moss' potty training :)
    29800580378_af581e9921_o.jpg
    42954334184_85b9c09b40_o.jpg
    When the potty training was done, Mikezumi went outside and helped Shannon finish off the gardening. They finished at the same time and I was happy to see Shannon go straight to Mikezumi for a flirt :)
    43670650611_ed8815b734_o.jpg
    Mikezumi got her wish to attack Finnian with the Claw :)
    28782292187_b52d1f778c_o.jpg
    Mikezumi, being family oriented, got the job of teaching Moss how to talk because she can do it much faster than Shannon.

    Day 5 (cont.)

    I had Shannon read one of the recipes he bought recently.
    41862732650_aafc180928_o.jpg
    Mikezumi continued with the talking lesson :)
    41862732190_48fee82c37_o.jpg
    41862731910_e1f5be364d_o.jpg
    While the family were busy, I placed The Boardwalk on the beach :) When Moss had learned how to talk I sent the family for a little fun :)
    29800863528_e190fbea15_o.jpg
    I also gave Mikezumi and Shannon "You're not on the farm now!" second everyday outfits :)
    43624412662_bb1eb6daf2_o.jpg
    There are spring riders at the base of the roller coaster and Finnian and Moss got a ride :)
    43624455882_b43ebf7038_o.jpg
    43624455212_3b3e4d338b_o.jpg
    Moss got off willingly but Finnian put up a fight ;)
    42767886185_e4ebd484c4_o.jpg
    43624453142_e6d4b60af7_o.jpg
    I put a block table near the spring riders and I couldn't believe my eyes when Mikezumi and Shannon pulled out strollers for such a short distance.
    43670982601_ee38bdda6a_o.jpg
    Now that Moss can talk the kids can improve their relationship by playing together :)
    28782653847_41f8519156_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon went to the nearby small track for a quick ride so the kids wouldn't be on their own too long.

    Day 5 (cont.)

    The toddlers were happily getting to know each other so I didn't rush Mikezumi and Shannon back to them ;)
    43671202531_5cd63f4b55_o.jpg
    42954912574_efe26aa81e_o.jpg
    When they were done, I had them collect Moss and Finnian so they could go home.
    42954911474_535d7bc569_o.jpg
    Mikezumi's waking wish was to watch the Cooking Channel. I couldn't think what was wrong with these pics but realized it was that Mikezumi was in the armchair and, in my mind, that is usually dad's place :p
    43671236711_1058c1f9ab_o.jpg
    43671235591_b5d2946c15_o.jpg
    Don't tell the neighbours that I cheated! The cheap set doesn't have the Cooking Channel ;)
    43671236231_8a1a32180c_o.jpg
    Finnian must be Shannon's favourite because he is constantly rolling wishes for him!
    42768201515_533e5de9a3_o.jpg
    I saw Shannon heading to the tractor. I don't know why he did because the gardening was done but I let him go.
    43671270561_b87062a82e_o.jpg
    Mikezumi was busy anyway because she was baking a birthday cake for Finnian who would be aging up the next day.
    28782942137_6b61a7c1a2_o.jpg
    When I checked on Shannon he had finished with the watering and was fertilizing.
    28782941957_e71a3505ac_o.jpg
    I had Shannon come in to help feed the toddlers before they sat down to dinner.

    Mikezumi and Shannon took the kids for a stroll after dinner :)
    42768243815_16970b2805_o.jpg
    42768242855_4b493998ea_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon watched the stars together when they got home :)
    42768241325_94a74e212b_o.jpg
    While the kids played ...
    41863132870_df6138a26e_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon had some fun of their own ;)

    Day 6

    Shannon and Mikezumi got the toddlers up and ready for the day. It's Finnian's last morning as a toddler :)
    42969684414_610c8dba95_o.jpg
    Shannon was happy to see pancakes on the table :)
    43685964161_85c756361b_o.jpg
    They both had the same waking wish - to play a game with the other :)
    42969683724_938dbd2b6b_o.jpg
    Mikezumi also had a couple of Moss wishes which hadn't been fulfilled because she got Finnian up.
    43685963491_46a2184b8c_o.jpg
    Shannon got started on the gardening. I was kinda hoping he would run over the mail carrier because I am angry at her for delivering two IFs. I won't be collecting any mail until both the kids age up! It would seem that, although it is possible to tune the chance of getting an IF at birth, that there isn't the same option for adoption :# (Unless it's not obvious)
    42969682994_a8e61c3179_o.jpg
    Mikezumi rolled a couple of Finnian wishes while playing with Moss :)
    43685962811_cbcb4f6094_o.jpg
    She had a general stroller wish but I let her have it with Finnian since it will be her last chance before he ages up.
    42969682134_241a35a351_o.jpg
    When Mikezumi returned from her stroll, she helped Shannon finish the gardening. The boys played together - I love the way that kids playing with toybox toys are communicating even though it's not obvious because I have turned off thought bubbles.
    43685962191_2007eb7e18_o.jpg
    Shannon also got a last stroll with Finnian :)
    42969681174_b95f99c3ca_o.jpg
    Mikezumi has a wish to cook x amount of perfect meals locked in so I had her prepare more pancakes while Shannon was on his stroll. I should have put fruit in her inventory because she chose watermelon (which I hate) and they don't have many because watermelons are a low yield plant.
    28796988397_142188d037_o.jpg
    They celebrated Finnian's birthday when Shannon returned.
    28796987827_1e306f73e1_o.jpg
    41877857000_89d66ef35d_o.jpg
    Mikezumi was showing what I was feeling at the time. I was muttering under my breath about how slow age ups are ;)
    28796987127_9d496cfba7_o.jpg
    42969678774_6f1e7887fe_o.jpg
    I am wondering what I have added to my game recently because I have never seen that top before.
    28796986597_ff0a3f5ebb_o.jpg
    There's my Finnian! :) I know his hairstyle is anachronistic but he's my Finnian and this is my game ;)

    Day 6 (cont.)

    Note to self: Place small table in dining area for birthdays ;) I was a little peeved that Mikezumi took the birthday cake into the kitchen after serving it because elders walk slowly and I didn't want her eating on her own :#
    28796986157_f1ebf7bc25_o.jpg
    It worked out okay because Finnian is quite the talker and hadn't started eating when she returned ;)
    41877838350_9aa642cc1d_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon have already lost the animated speech but Finnian was beautifully animated while chatting with his parents :)
    28796985497_8c85f23f42_o.jpg
    Shannon took Moss for a stroll after cake :)
    28796985197_59b9b2d997_o.jpg
    Finnian, being artistic, found the easel and started painting :)
    41877837170_8f60801f20_o.jpg
    I knew Finnian was Shannon's favourite because he went straight to him after his stroll!
    28796984747_b8fde424a3_o.jpg
    Mikezumi rolled a wish to snuggle Moss while Finnian was aging up. She probably didn't want him to feel left out :)
    41877836470_09fc10c08a_o.jpg
    When I checked on Shannon and Finnian they were playing tag in the yard.
    28796984117_2b3b66a7b8_o.jpg
    28796983757_eccb45bc42_o.jpg
    I sent Finnian fishing because all my sims fish!
    41877835220_5668237ed8_o.jpg
    Shannon went straight to Mikezumi when I stopped the game of tag to send Finnian fishing :)
    41877834660_b285a987d5_o.jpg
    Shannon always chooses the shower! I should put a shower downstairs to spare them the hike upstairs!
    41877834070_a0199513cf_o.jpg
    I wanted Shannon out of the way while Mikezumi prepared food for Moss. I didn't want him giving Moss generic baby food or removing him from the highchair.
    41877833810_832ae93d56_o.jpg
    41877833300_72b3ee99dd_o.jpg
    I checked on Finnian who looked unhappy even though he already had several fishing wishes under his belt ;)

    Day 6 (cont.)

    Mikezumi must have gone to Shannon while Moss was eating :)
    41877831890_7a979e5033_o.jpg
    Shannon and Mikezumi watched the stars before they attended a party thrown by Grumpo Marks.
    41877831030_3c531c4ea0_o.jpg
    Finnian went ahead of his parents because they had to get Moss ready.
    41877830570_2f1150815d_o.jpg
    I quite like the looks of Grumpo!
    41877830180_1422e69c39_o.jpg
    When Mikezumi, Shannon and Moss arrived, Mikezumi prepared a cheese plate.
    41877829860_0ce1416e30_o.jpg
    Grumpo, who is childish, had been playing tag with Finnian but they must have been taking a breather when I checked on them.
    41877829380_4c1547231e_o.jpg
    Dyno and Sharpo arrived together.
    41877829070_533596b28f_o.jpg
    After Shannon had introduced himself to Sharpo, Mikezumi did the same.
    41877828510_76984c19af_o.jpg
    Shannon went outside to introduce himself to Glummo.
    41877828070_65a78d5081_o.jpg
    Dyno, Grumpo and Finnian were in a group chat when I checked on Finnian :)
    41877827420_76bd9bbfea_o.jpg
    Good Lord! I can't believe there is someone in my town who is dressed like this! I never use skimpy clothing and I can't imagine many women of that era dressed like that unless they were of a certain type. I'm pretty sure this is her career outfit so perhaps she moonlights? ;) It was getting late and the kids had to sleep so I sent the family home without introducing themselves to Louise Houveir.

    Day 7

    Shannon got Moss up and ready for the day :)
    43708591281_3893b462df_o.jpg
    It's Saturday morning so Finnian doesn't have to worry about school for a couple more days :)
    43661460972_c1d85cf5f6_o.jpg
    Finnian had a wish to level up in painting locked in from the previous day. I don't think I have seen this painting before.
    43661460402_21398932b0_o.jpg
    Shannon had a wish to tickle Moss and a wish to go for a stroll.
    43708588911_e4c96ef7e1_o.jpg
    Since Mikezumi was so keen to cook with watermelons I had her prepare some Eggs Machiavellian.
    43661459822_44450e7ec8_o.jpg
    43708587901_5f860560cc_o.jpg
    When Shannon got back from his stroll, he and Mikezumi did the gardening.
    43708587241_ab01e296d0_o.jpg
    43708586491_b58e27ed4a_o.jpg
    Moss played on the block table while his parents gardened.
    43661458312_e47f9ae472_o.jpg
    I got a popup that Finnian had finished his painting. I have no idea what the painting is of!
    43708585421_d13c68dfbd_o.jpg
    Finnian rolled a wish to catch a bug :)
    43708584251_458caacbc7_o.jpg
    Shannon had a wish to prepare a meal.
    43708583651_d1cd4eeb8f_o.jpg
    Mikezumi had a wish to play a game with Finnian. I did give the boys balls but there is no way I am giving Mikezumi one!
    43708583161_25444fc927_o.jpg
    Moss being totally adorable :) He will be aging up the next time I play.
    43708582551_fc76379aa9_o.jpg
    When Finnian's peg box logic skill was unhidden he rolled a few potion wishes.

    Day 7 (cont.)

    Shannon rolled wishes to purchase a costume chest and toy oven the previous day. As soon as I bought the costume chest, Finnian rolled a wish to dress up :)
    43708581821_b108067533_o.jpg
    I bought a shower for the downstairs bathroom and Shannon and Mikezumi christened it ;)
    41899983800_5f251a91fa_o.jpg
    Mikezumi looked like the cat that got the cream when she came out of the bathroom to take Moss for a stroll :p
    43708581251_22659452f0_o.jpg
    Finnian sought out Shannon when he was done playing dress up :)
    43708580631_3f6c2e308b_o.jpg
    41899981910_9168a11a56_o.jpg
    Finnian discovered the ball in his inventory :)
    28818532187_ab6733dfd5_o.jpg
    The family went to the beach for the afternoon.
    43708578201_573915cf36_o.jpg
    Shannon went straight for the water.

    Moss didn't want to get off the spring rider! :D

    Day 7 (cont.)

    Finnian went to the water as Carolyn Morgan arrived.
    42992412524_9c3fe2586a_o.jpg
    43708572281_29794e9b3f_o.jpg
    Mikezumi chatted with Norma until they were friends :)
    42992411344_9ceb0ebab1_o.jpg
    Not quite sure what Norma was showing off but Mikezumi was impressed ;)
    43708571231_26c3f1eeeb_o.jpg
    Finnian didn't swim for long and I saw him heading for a beach chair. Moss was heading for the dollhouse that I had placed before the family arrived.
    42992410164_66cf9e270b_o.jpg
    When Carolyn came over I had Finnian introduce himself.
    43708570341_6777fe3022_o.jpg
    Mikezumi kept trying to get to the water but I wouldn't let her because she would have to leave the lot and Moss can't be left on his own.
    42992408474_0b42c125b4_o.jpg
    I kept making her relax but she kept getting up to swim. I got frustrated and made her nap instead :D
    29838061798_a84a561784_o.jpg
    Shannon stayed in the water the whole time the family were at the beach.
    42992406434_0313808ea5_o.jpg
    I got the family home in time for dinner :)
    29838060998_0bde3f3046_o.jpg
    The kids played while Mikezumi and Shannon watched the stars :)
    42992403194_ec2e797cb8_o.jpg
    When Moss maxed his peg box skills, I had him join Finnian at the block table :)
    29838059758_85f135a889_o.jpg
    I went looking for Mikezumi and Shannon and they were watching the stars again :)

    Day 8

    Mikezumi got Moss up and ready for his last morning as toddler :)
    43688489442_3047ab6016_o.jpg
    The family enjoyed crepes for Sunday breakfast :)
    42832194465_cbc55c756e_o.jpg
    Shannon's waking wish was to catch a great fish :)
    43688488092_3ec2cabea7_o.jpg
    Over breakfast, Mikezumi rolled a wish to play a game with Finnian. Finnian rolled one to chat with Mikezumi. When he got that wish, he rolled another to play a game of catch with her :)
    43019996934_e06b85f124_o.jpg
    When Shannon got his fish, he took Moss for a stroll :)
    43688486272_faaf651fec_o.jpg
    Mikezumi's waking wish was also to catch a great fish :)
    43688485072_a184269632_o.jpg
    When Mikezumi got her fish wish and Shannon got back from his stroll, they did the gardening together.
    43736621971_b97ce3b5b6_o.jpg
    Good thing that collisions don't put paid to the gardening ;)
    43688483692_89f46bd566_o.jpg
    Finnian's latest painting :)
    43688483142_748125b155_o.jpg
    I saw the dollhouse in Finnian's queue and was happy because I knew that Moss was playing with the dollhouse. Unfortunately, Finnian went all the way upstairs to play with one on his own.
    29865425278_1fc8d4e76d_o.jpg
    When Shannon finished gardening, he went upstairs to chat with his favourite ;)
    43688482162_479b3c9e86_o.jpg
    Mikezumi took Moss for his last stroll :)
    29865424218_41854ccbc0_o.jpg
    I had the family gather for Moss's birthday.

    Much better! :)

    I forgot to place a small table for the cake! :#

    I sent the family to The Boardwalk for the afternoon :)
    41927646300_73c2f7fbdc_o.jpg
    Mikezumi took Moss on the small ride.
    43736606621_7427c10352_o.jpg

    Mikezumi seems to roll more Moss wishes than Shannon but she also rolls many for Finnian so she must not have a favourite. I thought it interesting that Shannon rolled a wish to enrol Moss in military school whereas he didn't roll any boarding school wishes for Finnian!
    43736600841_1f1902da8e_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon met up after their rides :)

    Moss asked Finnian for a game of catch.

    It took a while to meet up because they had to go outside the building.

    Day 8 (cont.)


    I only watched the boys play catch for a few minutes!

    Mikezumi and Shannon met Ainsley Andrews.

    Mikezumi trusts her man and was quite happy to got off to read while Shannon chatted with Ainsley :)
    43019967764_15afedc212_o.jpg
    When Ainsley went to play a game, Shannon went straight back to Mikezumi :)
    29865407458_8d61171f9d_o.jpg
    I sent the boys home because Moss had a wish to learn the fishing skill and it was nearly sunset. Mikezumi and Shannon stayed at The Boardwalk a little longer for a rollercoaster ride :)

    42832164935_6e75fc93e6_o.jpg
    Finnian didn't have a fishing wish but I had him keep Moss company because he has a wish to become best friends with him locked in.
    42832163445_fe5c915c7d_o.jpg
    Finnian caught his first goldfish :)

    Moss caught his first minnow :)
    42832159245_5eec365233_o.jpg
    Mikezumi instigated woohoo when they got home and I noticed she didn't choose the shower. That must be Shannon's favourite.

    The family had a late supper of cookies because they were not very hungry after the birthday cake.

    Mikezumi and Shannon watched the stars before going to bed :)

    Day 9

    The family enjoyed pancakes for breakfast :)
    43710674282_95c2cf6bc5_o.jpg
    Finnian has already lost his animated speech but Moss delighted me by chatting animatedly with Mikezumi :)
    29888006678_de19a6393c_o.jpg
    Moss's waking wish was to give someone a friendly hug. Finnian has a wish to become best friends with Moss so Finnian got the hug. :)
    43042861414_f372e96ea7_o.jpg
    Mikezumi's waking wish was to play a game with Shannon.
    29888005638_d48a542106_o.jpg
    Finnian's waking wish was to play tag with Moss :)
    43042860764_28685f7a66_o.jpg
    While they were playing Finnian got his wish :)
    43042859944_3e651341ed_o.jpg
    Mikezumi had a wish to catch a 10kg fish locked in from the previous day. I sent her fishing with bell peppers. She caught a goldfish first which triggered a wish to prepare a meal using goldfish. Her next fish was a siamese catfish which was well over 10kg.
    29888003588_7c241239a6_o.jpg
    Shannon has a wish to level up in cooking locked in so I had him prepare some pancakes to replace what they had eaten.
    29888002918_a35ffcb6c8_o.jpg
    The bus stopped a long way from the house. The boys were probably puffed by the time they got on ;)
    43042857834_37d313c587_o.jpg
    After Shannon finished making pancakes and Mikezumi got her fish wish, they did the gardening.
    43042857294_be0475a956_o.jpg
    29888001118_2051d4db7b_o.jpg
    I had Mikezumi collect the mail. Here are the boys' IFs. I looked at the Debug Enabler options but couldn't see anything that would help me get rid of them. One of the options was to move them to the family inventory so that will have to do for now.
    43042855814_b780047a47_o.jpg
    I sent Shannon to the Bistro to deliver produce for a gardening opportunity. While he was out Mikezumi cooked her goldfish.
    43042855154_5710aca84a_o.jpg
    Shannon can now plant eggs and cheese :)
    29887999358_9463a1b0e4_o.jpg
    When Shannon got home I tried to have him plant cheese and eggs but he couldn't do it because of the uneven terrain. I had him plant them on a flat surface and then used MOO to put them in the garden.
    43042854474_25c1aa0cdd_o.jpg
    Farm life is busy but Mikezumi and Shannon found some time for loving :)
    43710667202_a294a603c5_o.jpg
    I know Shannon instigated this! :D

    Day 9 (cont.)

    When Mikezumi and Shannon were sated, Mikezumi pulled out a book.
    43710666482_f1fab0f885_o.jpg
    Shannon went out to use the tractor. The tractor must have a high fun factor because the gardening had already been done!
    43042852864_50676a9e6a_o.jpg
    When Mikezumi finished her book she sought out Shannon for a flirtatious joke :)
    43710665222_7d2b8a4e46_o.jpg
    When Shannon tried to go back to the tractor I had Mikezumi serve some tea.
    43710664252_fd0ac84954_o.jpg
    43042851724_53149e2b03_o.jpg
    I was happy to see them chatting animatedly while drinking tea :)
    43710662552_9d77e0d6d0_o.jpg
    "Where are you going, honey?"
    43042850844_dc10310ef1_o.jpg
    The kids got home late because of Scouts.
    43710661012_4896a0e6e8_o.jpg
    Shannon didn't get far in the tractor because Mikezumi wasn't done with him! ;)
    43710660492_b3dafaab65_o.jpg
    I had them watch the Cooking Channel. Shannon is getting close to getting his wish to level up :)
    43710659692_e9460313e8_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Finnian were thrilled with their fish and chips dinner :)
    43710659112_bfd19190a0_o.jpg
    Finnian came home from school with a wish to paint.
    43710658352_d43ae7410d_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon watched the stars :)
    43710657862_9641c455d5_o.jpg
    I had Moss play chess to unhide the logic skills acquired from the peg box which triggered wishes to make potions.
    43710657352_c35851e132_o.jpg
    So far there has been no wall-watching in this save :)
    43710656772_f5f5b78200_o.jpg
    Moss has a wish to become friends with a girl from school. I had him call her to help with their relationship.
    43710656362_d77768a80c_o.jpg
    The family watched TV until bedtime :)

    Day 10

    The family enjoyed Eggs Machiavellian for breakfast.
    Moss: "I know you wanted to send me to military school!"
    28844822907_580479e2d7_o.jpg
    While he slept, Finnian rolled a wish to use the costume chest. When he changed outfit it triggered a wish to play in costume. I sent him downstairs so he wouldn't have so far to go when the school bus came.

    Moss had a wish to play catch with Mikezumi locked in from the previous day.
    42877402235_dc889ac683_o.jpg
    Shannon finally leveled up in cooking while preparing waffles.

    Too cute! :)

    Mikezumi saw her boys off :) Nah! her waking wish was to find a seed and there was one in the front yard :p
    43781319021_023513c138_o.jpg
    Shannon and Mikezumi got started on the gardening after the kids left for school.

    Mikezumi rolled a wish to talk about gardening when she found the seed.
    43781316251_05c9e984fb_o.jpg
    The boys had a field trip to Dr. Terrible's Science Building.
    43064834184_4f28936864_o.jpg
    Oliver Harbucks was chaperone. Shirley Templeton was sitting beside him.
    43781314751_12c1b1f6d6_o.jpg
    Back at home, Mikezumi and Shannon played chess because Shannon's waking wish was to play a game with Mikezumi :)
    Mikezumi: "If we roll enough wishes to play games with each other, she's bound to relent and give us balls!"
    43781314421_8bcf6cc5cc_o.jpg
    I got back to the kids as they got off the bus. Goneril Capp was also there.

    Day 10 (cont.)

    I saw Shannon heading off to water a plant by hand so I put him on the tractor and had him do another round of watering. Mikezumi read a book outdoors. She was rereading a book from her inventory even though I had recently bought a bunch of new books for her :#
    43781312061_62ea7530b2_o.jpg
    Shannon came over for a kiss when he finished the watering. Mikezumi was so excited she put her head through his shoulder :D
    43064830984_cf45dea858_o.jpg
    43781310681_2c4f114ff1_o.jpg
    Shannon surprised me by choosing the bed this time!
    43064829974_f6b9eb9fb7_o.jpg
    41972636650_a25438678d_o.jpg
    I made sure both of the boys got on the bus after the field trip because it was a long way from home!
    43781309471_0e5ebb0448_o.jpg
    The boys got home early and I had something special planned for them :)
    43064829074_9cd80b9637_o.jpg
    Moss came home with a wish to do his homework and Finnian with a wish to find a rock.
    41972635280_862aa3ea33_o.jpg
    I found Mikezumi asking Shannon about his Alma Mater :/
    41972634940_0e99ff8046_o.jpg
    I was glad they were beside the tractor because my surprise for the boys was a hayride :)
    43064827604_560018ace7_o.jpg
    41972633480_536c0d4831_o.jpg
    Not quite sure what could be so scary about a hayride!
    29910528448_e3280aa5f4_o.jpg
    Then Mikezumi did it too! LOL
    43781304421_96b5ca27a3_o.jpg
    I knew it would only be a matter of time before Finnian did it too! :D

    Day 10 (cont.)

    When the boys saw Shannon and Mikezumi they rolled wishes to play games with them :)
    43781301811_6988306a2d_o.jpg
    41972628920_e7f05d9baa_o.jpg
    The family had dim sum for dinner. Remember Mikezumi's goldfish wish? :p
    28844811357_ce380f9b4f_o.jpg
    Finnian was close to mastering the block table but Moss had yet to start so I had the boys play together.
    41972627830_522e859ec7_o.jpg
    28844810817_6101731b85_o.jpg
    Shannon and Mikezumi watched the stars after dinner :)
    43781298861_ebe123398d_o.jpg
    When Finnian mastered the block table he got his wish to find a rock :)
    28844810277_0f015b4ec2_o.jpg
    He worked on his painting when he got home.
    43781297611_b36d8017bc_o.jpg
    Shannon was true to form this time ;)
    28844809607_b82565e8e8_o.jpg
    Mikezumi is still working towards her wish to prepare 10 perfect meals.
    28844809247_4181132480_o.jpg
    The family watched TV before bed :)
    41972624840_3871d72ef0_o.jpg
    *ouch*
    41972624160_9a91bcddc7_o.jpg
    The boys looked sleepy so I sent them to bed ;)
