Life Leading up to "The Sims 2"
Barbara was born to her parents in the Riverblossom Hills area, in the nearby village of West Weasels. She graduated from Académie Le Tour with a degree in biology.
After graduating from college Barbara returned to her hometown, and came to Riverblossom Hills when she found a job in the natural sciences, wrangling clams from the bed of the river. One day after stopping at the local cafe for a bite to eat on the way home she hit it off with the chef, Cassidy Tinsley, who would eventually become her husband. The two were smitten and soon moved in together.
The couple moved into a bigger house at 102 Firefly Pass, and even got engaged. Though the two eagerly began planning their wedding they later decided to put it off... because Barbara was pregnant. She later gave birth to their first daughter, who she named Mabel. Once Barbara returned to work after Mabel's birth she soon snagged a promotion to scatmaster. Not long after Mabel was born Barbara got pregnant again, at which her and Cassidy decided to quietly elope. The two were married at the county courthouse and Barbara later gave birth to their second daughter, Alice.
