Welcome back to Range Valley, population 20.
We arrive back to the Kanes at Art Wall, which is now level 9! And Miriam has achieved her lifetime want of earning $100,000!
You might remember that Nolan’s LTW is to own five top level businesses. I figure we might need some help with the staffing. Ash Parmerley moves in to help. Ash is another fortune sim, with a LTW of becoming a criminal mastermind.
Kane baby #2 makes an unexpectedly early appearance.
And I frustrate myself immenseley with Kane’s Kitchen. I’m not sure if the restaurant isn’t working, or if I am bad at this. In any case, I drag it up to level 5, and will take it no further.
The Kanes also open up Range Valley Swimming Pool. Whilst there, Ash meets Shelby, and ACR does the rest. I wouldn’t normally pick her for him, because they are too genetically similar, but who am I to get in the way of love?
Back home, it’s birthday time! Zoya becomes a child, and is super, super cute!
And she vacated the nursery just in time, as Miriam gives birth on the deck.
Another baby girl is born in Range Valley! This is Mina, who looks just like her dad.
Little Mina is introduced to big sister Zoya.
Meanwhile, Ash continues to develop a relationship with Shelby Beckett, inviting her over on frequent dates.
And what better date than to a baby’s birthday party?
Yeesh. Oh man. Wow. Mina is not a cute child. At all. My goodness.
“I’m standing right here with my baby girl. Do you want to stop that?”
Good lord. I mean, really!
Fortunately, other people love Mina, even if she is a little hard on the eyes.
Ash and Shelby both roll the want to get engaged during a date, so I comply.
A quicky wedding the next day, and we welcome Ash and Shelby Parmerley to the neighbourhood.
Shelby is yet another fortune sim! This town is overrun. She wants to become a Space Pirate, so I may well be using the community lot to place a museum.
Shelby after a makeover. She’s really cute, but I wish these two didn’t have such similar attributes.
“So my mum says that the house is too small now, ’cause there’s me, my sister, my mum, my dad, my dad’s friend, and my dad’s friend’s wife all in the same place, and mum says that my dad’s friend and my dad’s friend’s wife want to start their own family, so my dad said that we should move out instead, ’cause we want a big house and my dad wants more kids, and – ”
Run, Laurel. Just head for the hills, and never come back.
And the decision is made. Miriam and Nolan want to expand their family, and want a much bigger house, and they are happy to leave their old house behind to their good friends.
And so the Parmeleys are left behind, making plans.
