Pleasantview: Round 1 - Caliente

 photo 9488-3_zps89331f15.jpg

I played this family back on July 24-25, so it's been a few months and I don't remember as much as I would like. But almost everything my sims do in this Uberhood is based on their wants panel. ACR is also a factor. So that is how almost every choice is made - it is based on their wants.

 photo 9309-1_zpsecc6c94e.jpg

I realize that this is not the Caliente  house, but I fixed up the Goth home after I finished playing their house and blogging about it.

 photo 9310-1_zps03345dfe.jpg

I thought I should show some pictures since it may be a very long time before I get back to their family again. Also, it kind of applies since...

 photo 9324-1_zps4f050f3e.jpg

Mortimer has just left it.  Even though Mortimer showed no interest in Dina in the last update, he also showed no interest in Bella even though Bella had returned and put the moves on him.  All Mortimer cares about is learning skills, so I figure he can do that at the Caliente house just as easily as at the Goth mansion.  Well, except for the distractions.

 photo 9327-1_zps236a2ab7.jpg

Dina knows how to distract him from his studies.  Even Rod Humble looks slightly distracted,  and that isn't even possible.

 photo 9344-1_zpsfaa141f4.jpg

He doesn't seem to mind marrying her right away out on the sidewalk.  She was in a big hurry to marry him.  I love her wedding dress.

 photo 9354-1_zps4f67a8a2.png

Even though Mortimer brought a lot of cash with him, he didn't qualify as a rich sim.

 photo 9366-1_zpsa626c633.jpg

They decided to take an island honeymoon.  The bellhop looks pretty impressed that the old guy has such a young, hot wife.

 photo 9372-1_zpseb205d0e.png

Every penny of Mortimer's money, that is.

 photo 9370-1_zps22f03091.jpg

 photo 9373-1_zps83058dc5.jpg

 photo 9382-1_zps70150f0d.jpg

Mortimer takes the opportunity one night while Dina sleeps to work on his relationship with his son Alexander.

 photo 9390-1_zps3fdc8f26.jpg

 photo 9395-1_zps6c9d6f99.jpg

Shame on you, Mortimer.  But Dina sees him and doesn't seem upset that he's noticing the beautiful island girls.

 photo 9399-1_zps9ea48b8d.jpg

 photo 9409-1_zpsc662ba80.jpg

 photo 9410-1_zps37e84fa2.jpg

 It looks like he got a little bit of a tan on this trip.

 photo 9527-1_zps3247467e.jpg

They had a wonderful vacation.  Dina came back feeling a little tired.

 photo 9427-1_zps603bec3f.jpg

They discovered they really enjoyed fooling around in the hammock.  Notice the angry Kaylynn in the background.  I guess they didn't notice, or didn't care.

 photo 9436-1_zps418d7764.jpg

 Wow, Dina is really hungry.

 photo 9437-1_zps7e2d2037.jpg

 Too hungry to cook.

 photo 9439-1_zps81e2aadb.jpg

Mortimer came to the rescue with some burgers.

 photo 9448-1_zpsa6cc740a.jpg

 Nina wanted some new clothes, so she got a makeover as well.

 photo 9357-1_zps5c8de996.png

She wants to be a celebrity chef, so I thought she should dress a little better for the job.

 photo 9454-1_zps4a2bce3c.jpg

While she was in town, she met this townie who probably has another name, but in my game is named Drake Collin.

 photo 9464-1_zps514dbd4f.jpg

 Apparently they hit it off right away.  Nina moves fast.

 photo 9466-1_zpscf3dd4bf.jpg

Even though she wasn't feeling too well, Dina headed of for her first day of work.

 photo 9358-1_zpse11e3beb.png

Her LTW is to become the Hand of Poseidon.

 photo 9467-1_zps9483c18b.jpg

Nina is looking pretty bored.  That is a bad thing for her.

 photo 9469-1_zps9efec15f.jpg

I was concerned that something was going to happen between these two while Dina was at work, but thankfully nothing did.  I love Nina's expression.

 photo 9471-1_zpsa1ae181e.jpg

Nina is in the military until she can find a culinary job.  What better place for her to meet men?

 photo 9475-1_zps9dca20dc.jpg

 Dina is beginning to wonder if she's pregnant, but she looks happy at the prospect.

 photo 9476-1_zpsd3c175e0.jpg

Mortimer has been working out.  His LTW is to Max All Skills.

 photo 9479-1_zps736da421.jpg

Nina busts a move for Brandon Lilliard.

 photo 9480-1_zpsc4f88921.jpg

I thought it was funny that the Oldies came by and fell in love with each other again, while Mr. Oldie is swooning over Nina.

 photo 9483-1_zpse90b8774.jpg

Nina is putting the moves on Brandon - not too surprising.

 photo 9488-1_zps2c84a022.jpg

I think this is my favorite picture in the update with Nina trying to salute Kaylynn.

 photo 9494-1_zpsdea13cfd.jpg

Even though Don is married to Cassandra and has a couple of kids now and each of them has another guy, Kaylynn and Nina are still mad at each other.  Brandon tries not look - he's probably smart not to get involved.

 photo 9497-1_zps31cb7fe6.jpg

And now they are slapping each other.

 photo 9498-1_zps793a872f.jpg

Great party.

 photo 9502-1_zps2b88cf60.jpg

But it somehow ended up being a roof raiser.

 photo 9503-1_zps3968e5e3.jpg

Someone wanted an expensive car.  I think it was probably Dina, but I can't remember.

 photo 9504-1_zps9f6a7639.jpg

Mortimer takes a study break.  I think I see where this is going.

 photo 9506-1_zps66e7fb73.jpg

Drake somehow sneaked over with a pinball machine for Nina.

 photo 9508-1_zpsf6edd11d.jpg

Oh no, we don't really need more drama.  Go away, Daniel!  LOL

 photo 9517-1_zps3d0d0198.jpg

I think Nina and Drake must be either standing on the newspaper or blocking the trash can. I'm loving Kaylynn's expression so much.

 photo 9520-1_zpsaef762eb.jpg

But these two are oblivious to other people right now.

 photo 9539-1_zps999a2fdc.jpg

With great effort, Mortimer finished his athletic skilling.  Now he only has to finish his mechanical skills and a little more charisma, and he can die a happy man.

 photo 9545-1_zps8af64bb2.jpg

I think Nina is talking to Don on the phone.  I don't think Drake likes being ignored, but I guess she's done rolling wants for him for the time being.

 photo 9548-1_zpscd4abb9c.jpg

Still ignoring Drake, Nina greets Brandi right before she has to head off for work.  She finally got a job working in culinary.

 photo 9556-1_zpsa4365977.png

I decided that Nina was definitely the type of girl to teach them a lesson, even though I really didn't trust that it was the right decision.

 photo 9557-1_zps463af598.png

Oddly enough, it worked out in her favor.

 photo 9558-1_zpse8122cfc.jpg

I think this was actually a party.  Mortimer is his usual entertaining self.  These two guys are "friends" of Nina.

 photo 9563-1_zpsbd08bf83.jpg

Of course, Dina went into labor during the party.

 photo 9568-1_zpsc8e8d74c.jpg

She gave birth to a baby boy and named him Morty, Jr.

 photo 9570-1_zps68130d1c.jpg

And the first person he thinks about is not his mom, but Aunt Nina.  Babies are so ungrateful sometimes, LOL.

 photo 9571-1_zpsb888b52f.jpg

Meanwhile, Mortimer has failed to tear himself away from his mechanical studies because they are just so fascinating. He has already done the whole new dad thing a couple of times, anyway - nothing new to see there.

 photo 9573-1_zpsbfd5d3c6.jpg

I guess Nina didn't realize that Drake was still in the hot tub.  He must have realized that she's on a date with her newest love interest, Geoff Rutherford.

 photo 9575-1_zpsa0acc166.jpg

He was not happy with her.

 photo 9576-1_zps0ef75726.jpg

Geoff ignored the drama between Nina and Drake and tried to distract them by talking about the new baby.

 photo 9577-1_zpsbd82e1c4.jpg

I thought it was funny that after all the anger and slapping, they still kissed when she asked him to leave.

 photo 9579-1_zpsda52797d.jpg

That incident should have sent Geoff running, but Nina was a smooth talker.

 photo 9582-1_zpsc89662e1.jpg

I find it funny that Drake still brought Nina a bouquet of flowers, even though she's on a date with another guy.

 photo 9581-1_zpsfb757739.jpg

Geoff has chipmunk cheeks for some reason. LOL

 photo 9586-1_zps139e566c.jpg

That didn't stop her from doing what she does best.

 photo 9594-2_zps368fde05.jpg

More than once...

 photo 9591-1_zps54a9c3db.jpg

Drake stays furious for now, stealing the newspaper - saving them a trip to the compost bin.

 photo 9613-1_zpsbefd3814.jpg

Motherhood seems to suit Dina pretty well.  I made family her secondary aspiration.

 photo morty_collage-1_zps5e2a1c30.jpg

Morty, Jr. spam.

 photo 9619-1_zpsb21cfde5.jpg

It looks like Nina and Don are back together again. Not the best plan, but it's what she wanted.

 photo 9621-1_zps98186380.jpg

Why are Nina and Don standing by the car?  I'll let you use your imagination.  Let's just say that they more than made up.  Dina would probably be unhappy to know that they're using her car for that. :P

 photo 9616-1_zpsbf144a65.jpg

I guess Nina feels like a rock star.  She certainly acts like one.  She wanted a guitar.

 photo 9626-1_zpsd78784d3.jpg

It's time to celebrate Morty Jr.'s birthday.  Dina is having a great time, LOL.

 photo 9627-1_zpsef7de419.jpg

Awww, little Morty turned out to be a real cutie.  I'm so glad Mortimer was alive to see him become a toddler.  Mortimer's time is so short now.  Unfortunately, he has to get right back to studying.

 photo 9631-1_zpsc2855abc.jpg

Dina's dead husband came back from the grave for a visit.  He seems worried about his sister Bella.  Maybe he's unhappy that Dina married Mortimer.

 photo 9632-1_zpsf7e1d8f0.jpg

He really doesn't like little Morty Jr..

 photo 9633-1_zps81cb5095.jpg

He's a bit of a menace as a ghost.

 photo 9638-1_zps8797c185.jpg

Meanwhile, Mortimer is missing the haunting as he has gone to the library to do some more skilling.  He knows he is very near the end.

 photo 9640-1_zps7d6b8670.jpg

I'm just wondering what teenage girls are doing hanging out at the library this late at night.  Nerds.

 photo 9641-1_zps60da49d4.jpg

After he learned all he could about mechanics at the library, he remembered he still needed a little more charisma.  He headed to a clothing store to use their mirror to practice his public speaking.  Of course, he ran into his son-in-law out and about in the middle of the night.  Most likely Don is up to no good - looking for women.

 photo 9644-1_zps120fafcc.jpg

Mortimer was finally able to reach his LTW.

 photo 9647-1_zps37dcdfd8.jpg

He knew his time was very short, so he invited his children over to say goodbye.  He told Cassandra how much he admired the woman she had become.

 photo 9648-1_zpsb63ec845.jpg

And gave her one last hug.

 photo 9649-1_zps688b9003.jpg

He went to hug Alexander, but alas...

 photo 9652-1_zpsa80d505e.jpg

He ran out of time.  His escort to the afterlife had arrived.  As sad as it is, he and Alexander had spent time together recently, and they had become very good friends.

 photo 9654-1_zps51339983.jpg

Poor Dina.  But she needs to learn to stop marrying old guys.

 photo 9658-1_zps120c7d01.png

But I guess she does enjoy the benefits - the old ones usually have more money than the younger, more durable ones.

 photo 9659-1_zpsb183541b.jpg

I know you're sad, but come on - you just got $19,600.  You're still young.  Maybe you can marry a few more rich guys before it's your turn to go.

 photo 9660-1_zps80d42012.jpg

I do feel sad for Morty, Jr. He barely got any time with his father before he was taken away.

 photo 9670-1_zps70170202.jpg

Nina seems okay, as long as she has plenty of male attention.

 photo 9672-1_zps952da0bd.jpg

Dina caught Nina and Don together.  I find it disturbing that she is choosing this time to swoon.

 photo teddy_bear_collage-1_zpsf3d2cd48.jpg

Teddy bear haunting spam.

 photo 9669-1_zpsfbfc115b.jpg

As I said, Michael is getting to be a menace.  If I wasn't so entertained, I might move him to the cemetery.

 photo 9674-1_zpsb0e31a24.jpg

Haha, well I guess I may have to move him if he starts bothering little Morty later on.  It wil be interesting to see if Mortimer's ghost will be a problem, too.

 photo 9314-1_zps1d7cab4f.jpg

As we leave the Caliente sisters, I'll show you my makeover of the house.  I think some paint and new windows make it look a little better.
