Yep, they totally believe you saw an alien in the window last night.

boomer220

Bernard has a want to learn couples counseling for some reason.

boomer221

Benji looks jealous of his sisters at the block table.

boomer222

boomer223

They’re both so cute. ❤

boomer224

I was thinking about making the kids’ portraits as teens just to get it out of the way sooner, but I later decided to just do them as adults. So this one is sold (eventually).

boomer225

I swear Bonnie is crying over the cockroaches outside. So stop going out and stomping on them!

boomer226

Ignoring Bonnie’s cries.

boomer227

boomer228

Birthday time for the younger twins. Benji grew up first because Barty’s aging seems to be borked.

boomer229

But as soon as I bought a cake, he aged up on his own. Stop looking so sad, Bonnie!

Bonnie: “No cake for us.” *sniff*

boomer230

I kept them both in the same hairstyle, which I later regret because they were very hard to tell apart!

boomer232

Off to school!

boomer233

Jason had the day off so he and Krysten got some quality time together. Aaaaaand a skunk who caused no trouble.

boomer234

Bernard is home from school (see Krysten stomping roaches there? I’m constantly fighting them with that).

boomer235

Bernie invites Lisa over.

boomer236

Bernard: “What do you say we get out of here? I’ve got money in my pocket and I’m sure we can find something to do downtown.”

Lisa: “Really? That does sound fun. You’re parents are okay with it?”

Bernard: “Of course! Don’t worry about them.”

boomer237

Meanwhile, the girls came home with A+!

boomer238

Hey! Don’t teabag your brother just because your dad’s eyes are closed!

boomer239

Bernie and Lisa head out to Red’s Famous ’50s Diner.

boomer240

Bernard is already trying to feel her up. They’re both at crush status now.

Bernard: “Okay, baby, I’ve got to get a table.”

boomer241

Lisa falls in love as he walks off.

Lisa: “I love a guy who takes charge!”

You need to slow down.

boomer242

Lisa: “Do you know what’s good here?”

Bernard: “This is the first time I’ve been here in my life, so leave it to me.”

Was going to say it’s also the first time he’s been to a restaurant, then remembered he works in fast food so that technically wouldn’t be true.

boomer243

Bernard: “Two burgers for me and the lady.”

boomer244

Waitress: “Single or double patty?”

Bernard: “On the double!”

I feel so bad for her.

Edward Contrary: *casually dines in wetsuit*

boomer245

Bernard: “Gotcha! You don’t mind, do you?”

Lisa: “No, I was just thinking I wouldn’t be able to eat it all anyway.”

Suuuuuure you were.

boomer246

Bernard: “We need something more.”

boomer247

So they do a toast.

boomer248

Bernard: “To great burgers in cheesy restaurants!”

Honestly I was just having fun trying out these dining interactions.

boomer249

Get that guy out from behind the counter! Health code violation!

boomer250

They dance to the juke box after they’re done eating.

boomer251

Bernard: “Nice moves. I think we work well together.”

Lisa: “Me too.”

boomer252

Bernard: “You mind if I–”

Lisa: “Kiss me?”

Bernard: “That too.”

boomer253

So he does.

boomer255

Then Lisa is greeted by some older guy and Bernard doesn’t seem to like it.

boomer254

He must show that Lisa’s already been spoken for, because he’s totally on some macho shit like that.

boomer256

Although it appears that the guy really was just trying to meet everyone in the restaurant.

boomer257

Back at home in the real world, Bernard gets picked on by little kids!

boomer258

But Lisa is so totally smitten with him that she’s beyond caring.
