Penguins and Elephants

Someday, I’m going to learn how to share the photos I’ve taken in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but until then, I’ll keep sharing fun shots from Pocket Camp!

Evening Cherry Blossoms

Maybe it’s just because I’m missing the cherry blossoms at the Missouri Botanical Garden, but I’m really enjoying the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp cherry blossom event!

Cherry Blossom Season

I love cherry blossom season in Animal Crossing, and I especially love it in Pocket Camp this year, because it allowed me to take a picture of my favorite penguins, Roald and Aurora!


As soon as I got the Valentine Photo Spot in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, I knew I was going to have to get a picture of Roald and Aurora together. I finally did (and just before the snow melted, too!)…have you ever seen a cuter couple?

Matching Shirts on Valentine’s Day

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp has been holding a special in-game Valentine’s Day event this month. One part of that event has been daily login bonuses, which included a pair of matching heart t-shirts. I assume the intended purpose of these shirts was for the player and their favorite villager to wear so they could match I decided that instead, I wanted my favorite penguin couple to be t-shirt buddies!

Aren’t Roald and Aurora adorable? Just a little over a month until the new Animal Crossing game comes out for the Nintendo Switch, and I can’t wait!!!

Roald and Aurora–A Penguin Love Story

Ever since I first started playing Animal Crossing games what seems like a very long time ago (seriously, getting close to two decades!), my very favorite villager has been Roald the penguin. I mean, how could you not love this guy?

Somebody as nice as Roald is clearly not destined to be a bachelor, so I was very excited when, at the end of last year, Aurora was added to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. There are several penguin gals in the series, but she is by far the nicest, and the perfect match for Roald.

Ever since she was added, I’ve been looking for photo opportunities that provide evidence of their sweet relationship.

Culminating with this spring’s wedding-themed game event, where I finally saw them exchange vows (with their penguin pal, Cube, officiating)!

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp might not be a full Animal Crossing game (I sure am looking forward to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in 2020!!!), but it has let me have fun creating this little story!
