Early the next morning
Vincent was in an unusually bad mood!
Some food and fresh clothes seemed to do the trick, however!
Erica tried to hide her tears from her son, and escaped to her bedroom to make her bed. Which was super emotional
Then it was time for work and daycare.
Vincent loves daycare Because the weather was so nice, the toddlers were let outside in the little toddler garden.
Lottie the horse was running around in her pen behind the playing toddlers.
Later, they all went back inside to play with toys (and Marcel had to clean up ). Vincent’s best friend in daycare is Moon. They will both be going to school together after the summer holiday.
Erica had picked up Vincent, and hugged him tightly. The guests were about to arrive for his birthday party!
Erica had arranged a garden bbq party, and invited family and friends, as well as Moon and her family.
Park couldn’t wait to have a hot dog (I guess she’s used to tofu dogs at home)
Speaking of tofu dogs, Erica thought it wise to cook some for those vegetarian guests!
Don’t they feed this girl at home?!
The party was going pretty great! Everyone was dancing, chatting, or eating.
Maria had of course brought her guitar and played the birthday boy a little tune.
I had planned to use birthday cakes to age up Moon and Vincent, but it wouldn’t work Does anyone know why? I had Moon age up via Nraas, but to my dread no one noticed
Most sims stood with their backs turned away from Moon when she aged up, but it seemed only two sims noticed… and only one actually cared
What can I say, Moon’s parents were busy
Aaaw, but here she is, their now big girl
I don’t know what it is about Anthony that attracts kids!
I wish I could say that Vincent’s age transition went much better…
But at least Moon was happy to see her friend age up
Moon got the trait rebellious
Vincent got the trait clumsy
It was growing dark outside, but that didn’t mean the party had to end (Only that you, dear reader, get crappy pictures from now on )
It was great to see Gabriel show some interest in his son!
Vincent: So, dad, what’s my present? Is it HUGE?!
Gabriel: Heehee, you’ll never guess what it is!
…. Check it out!!!!!!
Gabriel: IT’S A DOG!!!!!!!
Needless to say, Erica did not approve of this gift. Although she knew that now was not the time to yell, she was just so angry at Gabriel. Where did he expect for the dog to live? Not at her house that’s for sure! This wasn’t really what Gabriel had expected (he’s an idiot), but alright then, he would bring the dog – she has a name, you know!! – back home with him.
Meanwhile, other catastrophes were happening…
Maria: Uhhm, help? It’s trying to talk to me!
Erica asked Gabriel to leave the party, but first, she had to explain to Vincent that the dog couldn’t live them. Vincent understood why, and took the news alright: I’ll spend more time at dad’s then, to help him with Stella.
Check out grandpa Alan playing in the sprinklers!
He hugged the last guest – Dylan, of course – goodbye, and got ready for bed.
He thanked his mum for his awesome birthday party, and then collapsed in his (big boy) bed
