The Lees have been through a lot by now. I think they’ve earned a vacation. And iirc, it cost 4,000 simoleons just for airfare, so they’re basically broke now.

I haven’t explained this, but I’ve decided to play the challenge in sort of intervals. Since the game allows for 8 Sims to a household (and I don’t want a stuffed household mod) I am having Jason and Krysten have 6 kids at a time relatively close together, then waiting until the youngest of those 6 are teen or close to it to start having the next kids. This way I get a break from having babies all the time and it gives me more of a sense of accomplishment.

Also, since we need 24 kids and 24/6 equals 4, I’m calling them quarters, AKA Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4. We are now working on Q1, and I want to end each quarter with a celebration which the kids from that quarter can all be part of. Therefore, they’re taking a vacation, even though it’s totally unnecessary and just makes the challenge longer. But I really just want to enjoy myself, and I think this will be fun. Yep, I’ve thought way too much about this. Let’s get back to the chapter.

Kids: *shove suitcases through their heads because sun is too bright*

boomer435

Since they’re broke now, of course they will be camping at Three Lakes!

boomer437

Baylie: “The air here smells so fresh.”

Bonnie: “Really, camping? They’ve got to be kidding, right?”

boomer439

Hammocks!

boomer440

Pancakes with a nice looking texture! (40 simoleons?! Okay, we can’t order too many of these.)

boomer441

boomer447

Fishing!

boomer442

Your glitching eyes remind me of Janice.

See the source image

boomer443

Anyways, throwing axes!

boomer444

I love when they almost fall over the line but catch themselves, lol.

boomer445

Krysten: “I saw some people greeting each other like this…” *pounds chest with fists*

boomer446

Bonnie: “Mom, stop! You look like a hillbilly!”

Krysten: “I’m just trying to learn, and you better change your attitude, young lady.”

Bonnie: “Ugh.”

boomer448

Krysten and Jason take their youngest twins to the Lumber Mill Range (Jason is still in his career outfit from this morning lmao).

boomer449

Krysten: “Having fun yet?”

Benji: “Yeah!”

boomer450

Jason checks out their pancake man monument.

boomer451

And Barty tries to learn the slap dance.

boomer452

Pretty soon they’ve all joined in.

boomer453

Of course Krysten has the hardest time trying to learn it.

boomer454

So she joins Jason at the ax throwing range.

boomer455

He’s already good at this because his athletic body skill is at level 9.

boomer456

The boys practice on the logs.

boomer457

boomer458

That’s a fail and a half.

boomer459

So Krysten goes against Benji on the logs. What’s this sport called anyway?

boomer460

Ah, logrolling. I should have known.

boomer461

Krysten: “Yay?”

boomer463

Barty is up against his father (again, level 9 body skill).

boomer462

That was expected.

boomer464

They play until they’re too exhausted to go on.

boomer465

This is when I discovered that when you’re on vacation and spend time away from the “home” lot, time still passes there. And I really don’t mind since the only things to do at camp are eat, sleep, and fish.

That’s why it’s nighttime now as Bernie and his sisters visit Wallowa Park.

boomer466

They hang out together.

boomer467

Luckily for them, a townie made some hot dogs!!!

boomer468

Couldn’t really do anything else here since they’re too broke. Goodbye, bear!

boomer469

Back at the campsite, Baylie falls asleep on a hammock.

boomer470

Everyone is still hungry, and using the grills is free! So get used to hamburgers and hot dogs.

boomer471

Krysten tries some roasted marshmallows.

boomer472

Krysten: “Mmmm. Almost better than…

boomer474

… woohoo.”

boomer475

Townie: “These woohoo noises make me vErY ANGRY!”

Somebody needs to get some woohoo.

Townie: “ARGH!”

This special episode of the Lee baby boomers will be concluded in the next chapter…
