Aidan: 6.14 “Vows”

Last time with the Diffys, Wanda aged into an elder, Tom aged into a teenager, and Tom and Leslie became BFFs. This time…


We haven’t been here in a while. Tom and Leslie are meeting Harrison Nair here.


Leslie is staving off her hunger to ride a rollercoaster with Harrison.


Tom goes to make some hotdogs to cure their hunger. This is Harrison’s older sister Melissa who followed him here, I guess.


After getting a little tipsy, she picks a fight with Tom, accusing him of being evil. She’s not wrong.

Leslie: “I’ll have to brighten his day later.”


Tom: “I don’t even know you.”

Melissa: “Don’t make excuses! I saw the way you made those hotdogs!”


Leslie proposes a game of rock, paper, scissors.

Harrison: “Can’t you see I’m holding a drink? I can’t really play properly.”

Leslie: “That just means I win!”


Harrison: “That’s not fair! I can’t play like this!”


Leslie: “You’re funny. Let’s keep playing.”


Tom: “You want to see something gross? Watch this! Heheheh.”


Melissa: “Ewewewew.”


Leslie and Harrison: “Pregnant woman! Ah! Ah! Hospital!”


Harrison: “Hey, I’m glad we could hang out.”

Leslie: “Yeah, thanks for coming out. I had fun!”


Wanda: “Aidan, I just want you to know that I really love you, and I hope you still love me.”

Aidan: “Of course! Why are you so nervous?”


Wanda: “I guess beccause we’ve been married for so long. It’s just been a long time, and of course we’ve changed since then. I just want you to know.”


Aidan: “Our anniversary is tomorrow. Why don’t we throw a little party at the park?”

Wanda: “Yeah, that’s a good idea. We’ll renew our vows.”


So the next day we throw a party at the fishing park.

Wanda: “Kim, I’m glad that you could come.”


Wanda: “Wish I knew your beauty secret, haha!”

Kim: “Oh, you wouldn’t believe me if I told you.”


Wanda: “I’m so glad you suggested this.”

Aidan: “I’m glad, too. I love you.”

Wanda: “I love you, too.”


Finally one good use for the papparazzi.


Too bad the lighting in the park isn’t good. I will have to fix this in the future.


Now please stay away from my house.


This pic is just to show Leslie and Tom in their formal.


At this point in game I had bought a new-to-me desktop. I switched over all my files, but did lose a few objects in the process. One was the very cat-scratched window seat.


I am so happy playing the game now. It runs so much better on the desktop. My laptop that I’ve been playing on is seven years old now, and running The Sims 3 has been very difficult for it. Usually takes 20-25 minutes to load up the game. On this desktop it takes about 10 minutes. Now I have almost no lag, and my Sims are able to accomplish so much more. It still freezes from time to time, but I have not had crashing issues so far.

I’m showing Wanda here because before I could never get her to tend the whole garden before her mood got too low. Now she can get it done easily and be in a great mood still. The cats are also doing a lot better. On my laptop I would always have to micro manage them so that their social need would get fulfilled. Now they are always in the green and actively interact with each other.


Leslie goes to meet Harrison at the community garden.


There are some neighborhood cats visiting here, too.


Leslie: “I just want you to know that I think you’re really handsome.”


Harrison: “I think you’re attractive, too. I’m glad you wanted to hang out.”


Then Leslie made her move.


Harrison: “Hey! Get back here.”


Next time: More of Leslie spending time with Harrison, and we invite Ben and Andy over for family time.

  1. Aw, that was a cute chapter, loved the anniversary pics! There’s something so endearing about happy elderly couples.
    That sudden mood change though when Leslie and Harrison say goodbye to each other after flipping out about the pregnancy haha =D

    And whaaat 20-25 min loading time? And still 10 min on the new one? Man, that’s a lot! 😦

    1. Yes, elder sim couples are just so cute!

      Glad you liked that part! I was going for the sudden mood change.

      Yeah, I’m counting from the launcher to being in the game, if that makes a difference. I’m just glad that it went down. Thanks for reading!


  2. Yay, happy it worked out for Leslie and Tom. Also good that Wanda and Aidan are still together and happy. My game usually takes about 15 minutes or so to load. I, too, have an old computer, maybe that’s it or it is just that this is Sims.

  3. Sweet new computer; grats on that one.

    Leslie already got a boyfriend. That’s nice and he seems cute. Was a bit worried after that reaction he had to playing rock-paper-scissor, but as long as it ends well.

    Tom is so evil that even hot dogs can sense it. Not bad.

    1. Thanks!

      Yes, I definitely need to spend more time on my spares. Leslie is lucky I like her, lol. Harrison was showing a bit of his dark side, and Tom has done the same thing while playing rock-paper-scissors before.

      xD Of course. What else would show Melissa that he’s evil? Thanks for reading!


  4. Aww, I like to think that real Leslie also walked around thinking “I’ll have to brighten his day later!” She is so cute with Harrison! Tom is adorable too. Aiden and Wanda had such cute kids.

    I’m so glad Wanda and Aiden worked out and everything. I was concerned about them for a bit. ;_;

    Congrats on the new desktop!

    1. I think she would do that! Leslie is so nice. I’m glad she hit things off with Harrison. Yeah, I really liked the way their genetics mixed with Tom.

      TBH, I would have a really hard time separating a couple if it wasn’t specified by the rules. I could have made them break up after the kids were grown, but I just didn’t want to.

      Thank you! I’m really happy with my game now. =) Thanks for reading!


  5. Aw, the anniversary was so sweet! But I’m afraid you’re just encourage the paparazzi to take pictures. They’ll be plaguing your house before long 😛
    How does one ACTUALLY make hotdogs evilly? Do you just… cackle? idk…

    1. Oh no, did I just curse myself with the paparazzi? Well, maybe it was worth it just this one time. As long as he doesn’t tell his paparazzo friends…

      xD Now you went and made me imagine it. Yes, cackling, of course. Must have made her think he was poisoning them.

      Thanks for reading!

  6. Maybe making hotdogs evilly would be overcoming them on one side and undercooking on the other? I think that’s pretty evil.

    That hangout was pretty interesting to say the least though, your game is so much more interesting than mine is, everywhere’s usually empty whenever my sims go anywhere.

    The anniversary was cute ^-^

    1. Lol, that would be pretty evil when done on purpose! You’d actually have to work to make sure the other side was still undercooked, too.

      I think I’ve been pretty lucky lately in that I don’t see empty lots so much anymore. Making the hotdogs probably helped to attract some Sims, too. But if you really need some Sims to show up, you can force them with mastercontroller. >:D

      Thanks! ^^


  7. Wow, Seven-year-old laptop? I haven’t been able to have one last that long since high school. Now I need a new one every 3 years or so, guess I use em to much and over-tax em. Glad to hear the new (prob a year old now) desktop is working well.

    1. It’s funny because my laptop stopped working a few days ago! The power button has been getting less responsive, and it finally stopped working. Eight years old and it was still chugging along for the most part, although it really wasn’t good for much besides internet browsing anymore. I had been playing Sims 2 on it but that wasn’t running well, either.

      That’s too bad, it seems most laptops last about that long, though. Wow, it really has been a year already. :O

      Thanks for reading!
