    In the early evening the family went to the local bowling alley

    Travis met a grandchild of him and talked to her

    while the others were bowling

    then Travis got his notice that he´s pregnant again! It will be his 13th and Haldir´s 15th child (I think it´s too much but they are fairies on an epic lifespan and love children, they have to deal with the Christmas and birthday presents, not me :D ) and Haldir congratulated him (a very lame animation, if you ask me!)

    to celebrate and to show their affection to each other, they danced together (they are so cute with each other!)

    their grandchildren made a photo meanwhile and played basketball after that

    This post will be very picture heavy, so I´ll put the most screenshots into a spoiler.
    And this update is just about Stella and Tyler playing Black Jack, so if you don´t want to watch the funny faces they pulled while playing, you don´t have to load all the screenies!

    So make your stakes, you two!

    And although it seems, according to the pictures, that Tyler had won, well, he lost 1000 Simoleons, Stella 8000. It was not such a good sleep they fell into that night! :p

    On their last day at Cape Garner Islands the family started their day quite relaxed. Everyone was packing and when the dogs needed to have a walk, everyone took a dog and went across the island.
    Tyler went with Tyson and I can´t even think of his thoughts when he had to wait for Tyson >:)

    Meanwhile Taius played with Streuner

    they had lots of fun

    In the late afternoon the boys went out for dinner, Stella stayed home "to take care of the pets" (she was still packing!) ;)

    when all of them were back home again the couples ended their last day by watching the stars, Taius and Christian played table football

    Very early in the morning they took the first ferry to leave the island and to go home to Moonlight Falls
    They arrived in the late afternoon and Tyler was the only one who hadn´t eaten at the plane so he went to grab something from the food generator after filling the pet bowls

    Evidently Travis and Haldir were in the need to move a bit,so they fought against each other. Keep in mind, that Travis is pregnant! He didn´t take it easy and won the fight (but I think Haldir let him win, because he wanted to spare his husband!)

    Streuner had to adapt himself to the garden again as it seemed, he was running around in the garden and then stopped in front of the bowl and was frightened of it (didn´t know what to think about him, to be true! :o )

    all others relaxed instead

    but then it began to rain, so the family was creative indoors

    and while Christian was writing on his book, Streuner was sleeping, the new surrounding seemed to make him tired
    but in the night, when everyone was sleeping, he felt lonely

    As you noticed perhaps, I didn´t post a few days. That´s because I had to work a lot in real life and wasn´t in the mood to play with the family.
    And I´ve purchased Aurora Skies Gold and then stumbled across a fixed version of AS for seasons, where the snow has the right texture.
    So I sat in front of the TV a lot while I was travelling* from Moonlight Falls to Aurora Skies, pick up all important Sims there (Haldir´s brother Hendrik and his family), moved them to a different town temporarily, installed the fixed AS version, had to rebuild the town a bit and then I travelled back to AS with this Sims. Now I´m playing them a bit, so my next update will be about a different branch of the Helmquist family!
    So prepare for Hendrik (left) and Argus Helmquist

    *travelling lasts 20 to 25 minutes every time, so I could watch TV a lot ;)

    Before I tell more about Haldir´s brother Hendrik I think it´s useful to show you their parents and tell a bit about the family bonds and their history.
    First let me show you the parents of Haldir,Hendrik and their other 8 siblings.
    this is Hennig, the father/founder of the big Helmquist family
    wuqQD1J.jpg
    he is a very powerful warlock and sometimes he can be seen coursing somebody and threatening them :)

    this is Freia, his wife. She is the most powerful fairy (next to Haldir) of her fairy people (you can´t see her wings, because in my game the fairies are so mighty that they can hide their wings to not to be recognized by normal people) (nee, I have a mod that makes fairy wings invisible, because if you play with a family/town of fairies the only thing wich you can see are their wings which causes some headache for me)
    Her father is the king of the fairies and he is very angry that his daughter married a witch!
    C4XuNv4.jpg
    JmKIORO.jpg

    they run away to Moonlight Falls to live together and they married when Freia was expecting their first child, Haldir. It was on a full moon in a private ceremony long years ago now, only the moon was their witness.
    KRwx9rz.jpg
    they are still in love very much, when you see them in town they still flirt and kiss, as if they were newly weds!
    6XpvBUu.jpg

    Hendrik is their third oldest child and he also is a level 10 warlock
    o7f2Olj.jpg

    when Haldir moved out Hendrick was a teen and he was sad about it, because in fact Haldir raised him and some of his younger siblings. Freia and Henning were loving their kids, but they loved each other even more so they only had eyes for each other. When Haldir got divorced to his wife (it was a fake marriage, I will explain that later, when we´re back with Haldir and Travis), Hendrik joyfully took the chance to move into Haldir´s house, where the two oldest children of Haldir and his ex-wife, Misty and Emmerson, lived, too. So he took care of them and could help Haldir in return.
    Hendrik became an adult and got to know Argus Brown, a young soon-to-be doctor. They fell in love immidiately and married a few weeks later, like Hendrik´s parents in a private marriage.

    (it was in Misty´s bedroom, her favourite colour is purple/pink, so the room looks like a bubble gum :D )

    they then moved out and founded a family on their own. Their two oldest 'boys' still live in Moonlight Falls with their families, but when Argus got promoted to the highest doctor level, he got a very good job offer at the hospital of Aurora Skies. And because Hendrik is a well known rock star and just plays few concerts, it didn´t matter where he lived, so both decided to move to Aurora Skies.
    they live there many years now, got a few more children, some of them already young adults and love their life so far.

    they´ve gotten twins recently, so I decided to change to them to help the kids to start in a successfully life, although Hendrik and Argus are very good parents, their grown up children are leading very good lives, too.

    And I´ve forgotten to say, that Argus is a werewolf! :)
