Take Me to the Moon 5.19
Fiona was the first goofball born into the family, and the first goofball since Maddi. And now, with three goofballs in residence (Zoe and Ranen were also goofballs), and the luxuriously laid back feeling of summer, a light-hearted feeling descended over the family.
Delaney had accumulated a lot of time off, so even though she hadn’t retired, she was home a lot. At last, she had that time she’d been wanting to have to chat, and cloud gaze, and enjoy her children, grandchildren, and Alexander.
Fiona got to spend some time with her triple great grandma Maddi at the pool, and found out Maddi was quite the instigator too.
They really hit it off. Maddi was quite enamored with the new cloud-gazing interaction, as well as her great, great, great granddaughter, who, to her delight, was half extraterrestrial, very smart, and had a triple great sense of humor.
Ewan was rarely gloomy; he had Zoe, and together, they had Felicity.
Even Elise’s insults couldn’t get Ewan down; they both ended up smiling.
Elise was officially Troublemaker #1.
But Ewan was in such a good mood, he painted a couple playful paintings in a row.
Ewan and Zoe’s daughter, Felicity, was a considerate, somewhat proper little girl who made people feel welcomed. After having met Great, Great Grandma Beatrice at her child birthday party, she had a special affinity for her, Great Grandaddy Cedric, and Great, Great Granddad Brad.
Felicity, on the other hand, was the only neat sim in the family. She enjoyed cleaning but she didn’t enjoy the general disarray that so often characterized the pool area and the dining room. It was not unusual at all to see her carrying a stack of dishes, and feeling tense about the mess.
Even Alexander was having his miscreant moments, describing the apocalypse to his sister one day when she came by. At first, she looked angry.
But he got a smile out of her in the end. It helped pass the time while he was out on the street, waiting to greet older relatives that might be passing by.
Zoe was interested in wellness.
She was a beginner, but the energetic feeling she got after a yoga workout was a big help for work, and felt great.
Since she really didn’t appreciate Elise’s insults, she needed all the serenity she could garner.
For example, one day, Elise autonomously painted a llama.
And then implied it was a painting of Zoe’s mother. Usually Zoe could take a joke, but she had a raw spot when it came to Elise.
But in defense of her fellow goofball, and aunt, Fiona got revenge, if only for a nano second.
“Hey mom, what’s that over there?!”
“It looks like an alien ship!”
Elise was very difficult to scare, though.
And Fiona ended up feeling sheepish.
Elise lectured her about telling lies.
And then promptly moved on, expecting Fiona to just put it behind her.
But Fiona felt too embarrassed, and went and hid in her bedroom.
After a while, Delaney came to check on her, and read her book there, pretending not to realize Fiona had been embarrassed, or gotten in trouble.
Dinner times were a lot of fun, as Delaney and Alexander shared funny stories and inside jokes with the rest of the family.
There were lots of whims to talk with each other, or tell a joke, or compliment someone.
Alexander was pleasantly surprised one day when Elise sat down with him and said, “Dad, thank you so much for being so good to us while we were growing up. I really appreciate you.”
It was a fun summer for everyone, and it felt like it would never end.
- The pool lot is by EA Origin ID Heidiextreme, and it is called Wild Waters Park Extreme. I replaced the big park at Oasis Springs with it.
- When I returned to the household, everyone had 3 days off, and it was the weekend! Before summer’s over (in game) they’ll have time to take Felicity and Fiona camping!
- The family is working on developing relationships with the Greats, but it’s feels pretty slow.
- I caught Maddi looking at Ranen and Fiona with alien thought bubbles, and she and Fiona are quite a fun pair. I picture her being pretty thrilled with aliens in the family.
