Narrated by Alexa Harper

Will and I have been trying for a baby for some time now but so far I haven't become pregnant. I guess we just assumed that it would be as easy as it was with Connor and Dane. I'm not worried though. I'm still young and there's obviously no medical reason why I couldn't get pregnant.

Mom and dad said it was about time for us to go on a honeymoon since we've been married for almost two years now.

We went to Heavens Peak and got ourselves a room at the Blau Hills Resort. I like the outdoors but not enough to sleep in a tent!

There was a hot tub almost right outside our room so we headed there as soon as we had carried our luggage in. It was so nice to spend some undisturbed time together.

I hadn't realized how tense I was until I got a massage. I didn't even know it was possible to have so many sore spots on your back and shoulders!

There was no restaurant in the resort so we ordered room service. Having cake for dinner is a bit boheme but we were on vacation so we thought "why not?!".

Naturally we called home every day to hear how things were going. Mom and dad took some days off work so they could spend some time with the boys. I think they were enjoying our time away almost as much as we were.

It's such a lovely area and the local people are really nice. They're mostly lumberjacks and their girlfriends but we blended right in. It was pretty cold but still warm enough to eat outside in the park.

I bought some souvenirs for mom and dad as a thank you for sending us on vacation and taking good care of our boys.

Will insisted on photographing everything! He was especially fascinated with this bear statue. I'm just happy we didn't see any live ones!

On our last night we decided to dine out. The restaurant was very casual so we just wore our sweaters and jeans. The food was delicious. Will laughed at me when I said I just wanted chocolate cake. He tried to make me eat some of his pork chops but I was really in the mood for chocolate.



I don't even remember the last time that we've been on a date so it was really wonderful.

We left the mountains feeling so relaxed. This was exactly what we needed.

The boys were already sleeping when we got home so I just kissed them and went straight to bed.

Dad was already making breakfast for them when I got up in the morning. I don't remember sitting so patiently on a highchair when I was a toddler but they just followed dad with their eyes.

The smell of pancakes really didn't appeal to me.

A couple of minutes later I found myself on my hands and knees in the bathroom. I don't know if it was the fresh mountain air or what but I took a home pregnancy test and I'm pregnant!

Notes:
  • Title reference: Stars by Roxette.
  • Alexa and Will tried many times for a baby but she finally got pregnant while they were on vacation. Poor thing, she's having morning sickness 24/7 now. The baby is due in Winter 2020.
  • It took me a long time to play this household because my game kept crashing. I think it was a combination of fragmentation of files, outdated videocard driver and apparently a bad download which I have now taken out. Hopefully it'll all work now better than it has.
  • I installed crammyboy's Community Time Project and I'm loving it! I can't believe I've played without it for so long.

  1. Aww, I can't wait to see the new baby! I loved the vacation, it looked like so much fun, especially the meal in the park with the lumberjacks. I agree, toddlers sitting patiently are rare, but so cute.

  2. Looks like Alexa and Will had a wonderful trip! I was hoping all through reading this that she'd get pregnant! They just needed to get away and relax, clearly. :)

    I'm glad you're enjoying CLTP. It's so awesome!

  3. Apple Valley, I'm glad you liked the vacation. It was really fun to play.

    I've never seen a toddler sit so patiently, usually they throw a huge tantrum if they have to sit there without food for more than 3 minutes.

    Carla, they enjoyed their vacation very much. I was keeping my fingers crossed that they'd get pregnant, they tried so many times before they were successful.

    I've been wanting to try CLTP ever since you said it's great so I finally installed. I'm definitely going to keep it in.

  6. I was wondering if she was pregnant with her sweet tooth. I'm excited for them, the boys are absolutely adorable. Really though, all your sims are.

    I liked the photos of them at the restaurant, they are such a sweet couple, and how great are the grandparents taking the boys.

  7. Maisie, you got the hint, lol. I was pretty sure she would get pregnant during this play session. Family sims are usually very keen to try for a baby. It took them a few times but she finally got pregnant.

    I really like Will and Alexa together. They only have 2 bolts but they roll a lot of romantic wants for each other.
