The Martingale Songbirds: Generation 2, Chapter Three:

 Island Paradise


Greetings from the beautiful Winchester Island located in the Simlish channel, this is Liz Martingale along with my wonderful husband, Oaken inviting all of our friends to join us in our new home for a fun-filled Spring Fever holiday where you can just relax and do whatever your heart desires. For those who like real adventure, hop in our new hot air balloon and do some sight-seeing from the sky or take our new horse for a ride around the countryside or just stay behind and visit or come see me perform a show at the Performance Park. For those of you who just want relax, I’ll leave our family album on the table for your viewing pleasure of the family activities over the past few months.

Eden’s first year at Sims University

Jeffery Dean from the Fraternity, invited Eden to all of his parties including this one on the first night that Eden arrived. Keg stands are a very popular party activity.

Eden even tried it.

One guest let his plasma level get too low. Mr Grim let him live as he had fun watching his calamities.

This Sim is just glad to be alive.

First day of classes. Eden had a busy schedule with 3 classes on Mon, Wed, Fri and one on Tue and Thurs for 5 classes in all.

Eden attending her first lecture. Eden ended up with one of the highest grades in her courses.

Eden was dared to kiss someone at the party so she kissed Jeffery Dean and they promptly fell in love with each other.

Eden is a good sport and fulfilled a dare to go dumpster diving.

On Thursdays Eden’s class goes outside to practice their sketches.

Eden was dared to have a game of juice-ping pong with someone, so she challenged Jeffery Dean. He won but Eden did get a few shots including one right into his mouth.

Things got romantic after dinner and she received two bouquets of flowers.

University Graduates
During her break from university, Eden invited Jeffery to visit her and meet the rest of the family in Winchester.

They missed each other so much and their flame of love was ignited once again.

Eden was so head-over-heels in love with Jeffery that she proposed not long after Jeffery arrived for his visit. Of course, he was thrilled and said, “YES” as he was in love with her, too.

Meet Eden’s loving husband, Jeffery. By the time they graduated from university, the happy couple had earned the ‘Eternally Faithful’ status.

Graduation day. Eden’s parents, Oaken & Liz along with her brother Owen were able to attend. Eden did so well in university she gained two extra traits: Social Butterfly & avant-garde.

That’s all the pictures for now and Oaken and I are proud of Eden and Oaken for doing so well in university. We now look forward to finishing our careers and hopefully become grandparents before our time on earth ends. Hope you all have a great spring and Easter and please join Eden as she takes over the family story next time.


Your friends always,


Oaken and Liz Martingale (Lullaby Liz)



  1. WOW, as always you have so much going on… your Sims are so busy but it looks like your having fun with them 😀 *HUGS*

  2. Nice update! You had fun with Uni I see. I finally got mine to work but I want to get my Frost chapters out first.

    • Hi Fairybird, Yes, University Life is a lot of fun. I think it’s one of the best EP’s yet. Eden’s brother’s turn for university will be coming up but I want to try to get Liz to the top of her career before she’s gone.
