Yu 2 – Round 19: ‘Moving On, End’

Filed under: Yu — Tags: , , , , , — Mao @ 1:01 pm

The Yus went on vacation as a bonding experience and also to take a break for the daily humdrum life.  Tracey had fun trying to learn the local ways, but wasn’t quite good at pounding her chest and acting like a gorilla.  The children were so fond of flapjacks they wanted to take them home.

Both being rather competitive, it took no time for the twins to find a sport they could enjoy.  Log rolling turned out to be a lot of fun, especially in the rain.  It made the logs extra slippery!  There was no chance for cheating her, but Shelly tried everything she could to get her brother off that log.  It eventually came out even.

When they weren’t striving to push the other one into the ground with competitive sports, they were exploring their surroundings.  They were fairly self-sufficient and enjoyed doing things on their own.  This was a great relief to Tracey and Ryu, who got to spend some time with one another and relax.

The best part of the trip had to be fishing with bigfoot.  Of course, they couldn’t actually tell anyone about bigfoot, but they’d always have the memories!

Their last night they decided to camp out.  Tracey regretted the decision immediately upon seeing the tiny, cramped tents they’d be staying in.  Thankfully, it was only for one night and it was a new experience.

Unfortunately, their trip ended on a not-so-good note when they went on a final tour and all ran into some poison ivy.  They spent their planetrip home itching and scratching like fiends.


Note from Mao: Marcus and Shelly crack me up.  They really seem to like competing with one another.  And the poison ivy, argh!  This was actually also the first time I’ve encountered bigfoot.

The kids are also teens now, but transitioned right at the end of the round.  Both are fortune.


  1. Cute updates, Mao! I’m all caught up. All the kids in the hood have grown up to be so pretty and handsome. You sure do get some nice lookin’ sims! Lucky girl!

    Haha, aww, thanks!

  2. Aww that was refreshing! No large Yu antics here! Although Shelly might surprise us in the future.

    Shelly is a little firecracker. We’ll see how she ends up…

  3. Aww, the competition with the kids was adorable! They are both so awesome, I love them. I didn’t even know Tracey had become an elder, those skins are very kind to elder’s. ;)

    Haha, yeah, they are. I am kind of glad, because then I don’t have to make them act immediately like old codgers. ;)

  4. Shelly is already a little troublemaker, I can tell. Bigfoot scares me D: him and his hairy butt. Oh la la. Marcus turned out pretty nice looking.

    LOL, Bigfoot doesn’t just have a hairy butt, he has a hairy EVERYTHING! ;)

  5. They are very attractive and look a lot like each other. At least this family is semi-normal.

    So far, and if you forget about the whole ‘ex’ situation!

  6. Wow-wonderful update! I love your website and seeing all sorts of things I didn’t know happened in the game. Like one sim giving the other a rose; or seeing the fish in the pond. The twins crack me up, so cute!

    Aw, thanks! As for the fish, I’m not sure what’s up. I had a really good graphic card before, but ever since having to completely rebuild after my PC died, I can see fish now!

  7. This was cute. Aww, their family is hardly deranged. Wow, Tracey’s an elder already? I’d never have known if it hadn’t been pointed out. The twins grew up very well.

    I know, she aged so well!

  8. Tracey did age well. Marcus is a looker. Hmmm is he related to the Yu’s?

    He is a branch of the Yus, yes.
