Rosabelle also wakes up really having to pee, she decides to take Fortuna over the the neighbors, the Caliente’s, and ask to use their bathroom since theirs isn’t working.

Fortuna changes out of her pj to go the the neighbors, but Rosabelle has to pee so badly that she forgets!

With the fruits she just harvested from the various dragon fruit plants, she will have 8 plants, so she places the sliced plant in their family inventory. She then plants 2 more dragon fruits to make 8 plants all together. Afterwards she waters them and fertilizes them with snapdragons she harvested earlier.

She sells the 25 remaining dragon fruits to the farmers market. They are in high demand and her first crop net them a good sum at §2268 simoleons! Their funds are now §127,798 simoleons.

And with a very nice amount of money to build with in the bank, the Prospero’s decide to invest in their property and build a home they can grow into as an adult family.

And when I said renovation, I really meant a complete tear down!
Goodbye to the old house!

Back at the Palazzo the family is all tired out from the party and everyone goes straight to their new bedrooms. At least now the kids aren’t sleeping in the same bed anymore!

    Wow now they are really living it up, remodeling the house and having a party 😉 The house looks AWESOME. I wonder what the bills will be. It’s very smart to go ahead and give the kids double beds, if they might have spouses moving in one day. (not sure how the challenge works/how you are planning to play it.)

      You are reading my mind! I am concerned about the bills, but I am planning to have both children’s future spouses move in at some point (ok in the rules) and the parents will stay here until they pass away so this is a big upgrade for them!
