With Mika and Eliya now safely arrived, and the spooky day festival in town we decided to take the kids to have a fun day out.
I enjoyed running into my son Andric’s little family. Andric wasn’t at the festival but his wife Alejandra and his son William were there enjoying the event.
I took the opportunity to get to know my grandson a little. Andric had left home a long time ago and it was nice to see that he now had a family of his own.
I even noticed that little William has inherited his eye colour from both his father and me.
I even took William for a little walk around the festival grounds.
I eventually had to take William back to his mother when he started to fuss and I couldn’t calm him. He wanted his mummy.
While I was handing William back to his mother, Breyan and Iselle were still deciding on their costumes for later in the day.
Eventually it was decided that Iselle would be a Rabbit, while Breyan had decided on being a Tiger.
Meanwhile, Mika had taken a liking to Dale and she wasn’t about to let him go and Lindsay had disappeared somewhere with little Eliya.
After visiting with my grandson and his mother I went and found myself a quiet place to read. From there I could keep an eye on what my little ones were up to and hopefully stop any trouble before it started.
The quads had entered a pie eating contest together, I’m not sure who won in the end but it looked like they were having fun.
Although the pie seemed to disagree with Ryne’s poor tummy.
They all seemed to be in a competitive mood as they all tried out the apple bobbing as well.
Ryne seemed to be the most successful with this activity.
There were other members of the family at the festival as well. I found my daughter Egwene working at one of the booths. 😀
Dale also asked me to tour the haunted house with him.
Our reactions to this little adventure were a little different.
While Dale seemed unaffected and even a little disappointed with the haunted house, it totally creeped me out. I have no wish to try that out again anytime soon.
Overall the first half of the day had been wonderful. The rest of the day would have been too except a little unexpected encounter with Rolan that soured it all.
Lets just say that his attitude has not improved since he left home.
I am now very glad that he declined Dale’s invitation to help out a while back. I don’t know what I would have done with both Rolan and Crux with his mind reading in the same room but I’m sure it would have ended badly.
To finish off the day Dale had volunteered to take the quads trick or treating. They didn’t really need anymore of the sweet stuff and their costumes had long since been abandoned but they were keen to go.
Unfortunately, it soon became obvious that a couple of the kids had overdone it at the festival.
Ryne and Breyan, both still with the evidence of an earlier pie eating contest on their faces soon succumbed to their upset tummies.
Dale had to bring the four home early after failing to even knock on a single door. 😦
A/N: I had a few problems with my game at this point. Usually it all runs smoothly but I ended up with a new sims 3 file trying to shake out the bugs and then trying to get everyone looking like they did before the switch. I had major problems with one of my store sets, of course it was the Lullaby Set 😕 it wouldn’t load because I was missing a store patch which I wasn’t. Thankfully, redownloading the set from the store fixed that problem. Other things that occurred before the new file and save also included a Costume party thrown by one of Lucia’s kids, every afternoon (on the same day) Lucia and Dale would be invited and for once I was going to let them go. I tried to get this day to work so many times. I think this one was Niella’s party, after they stood around for 8+ hours I gave up.
