Lot tour: The Kirby farm

A little while ago, Fini mentioned that she'd like to see lot tours of some of the houses in Sullivan. I don't often do lot tours of my residential lots, but it sounded like a good idea to me. Seeing I was in the Kirby house this afternoon getting it ready for the Christmas update, I took some pics for a tour.

The Kirby house is actually a makeover of the Maxis farmhouse that comes with the base game.

The Lachance-Patrick wedding

Round 32: November 2035 (Spring)
When Leslie and I were planning our wedding, my parents offered to pay to hold it at one of the more expensive venues.

It was important to us that we could pay for it ourselves though, so we decided on a church with an attached hall. It was perfect for us anyway.
