Spring was really making it’s entry! Although it was still quite cold in Bimlico, Spring was in the air!
This spring, you can spend some time around Bimlico with various sims, meet Bimlico’s newest resident, attend a birthday and the Maypole Festival, take a boat trip and hang with the skaters at Bimlico’s brand new Skate Park!
After the divorce, Madeleine had gotten herself an apartment downtown. Dividing her and Oscar’s things between them had been difficult. Unpacking them made Madeleine even more sad about the state of her life.
Bye, bye, old house!
Hello new house!
Malcolm was reading a book nearby (he’s such a good student ).
Usually, I let the “non-Bimlicoian” university students live their own life, but Lilian kept getting wishes for protesting, and I was curious to see how it worked! We decided to protest SCIENCE (?!) right outside City Hall
It took quite a while for sims to show up, but there ended up being quite a few sims. Someone even started a fight?! I don’t even remember who any more, but it was weird!!
Of course Lilian initially set up her protest in a small room inside City Hall, instead of on the big square right in front of it
Some sims also chose rather… interesting places to display their participation
Okay, I found the protest pretty lame, but at the end, the remaining sims suddenly had balloons that they released into the air!!! I had never seen that before – it was awesome!!! But… WHY did they do that?!
(Also, Rachel apparently decided to suddenly start protesting yetis )
LOOK AT IT!!
With Daria, Silas and Etienne
AKA The Nerd Club
With Eric and Willa
Willa is so big now!
It is clear that Eric is super excited to become a father! He so often wants to talk to the baby bump
He’s just such a sweetheart!
They decided to grab some late dinner at the (new!) Falafal Garden right across the street.
Okay, we were all just waiting for the moment: When would Willa pop?! She was due any time now
Ahh, she was just cooking them a pancake breakfast…
… but Willa only got to eat one pancake (blasphemy!!): IT WAS TIME!!!!
It’s a girl!! Meet little Rio
Rio is Brave and Friendly.
(Uhhm, yes, that is Bimlico’s paediatrician/midwife, Dr. Hannah, in the background. I guess she was late for the birth? )
Eric was just ecstatic!
After they recovered from the birth, and got used to their new status as parents, life in the little home went on. Eric did some gardening, and Willa did some sculpting. Misha also got a job: watching over little Rio
