In April, Trenton and I took our first real vacation since we had kids. We took a Carnival cruise to the Bahamas. It was so nice to get away and just be us. I won't lie though, I will never go on another cruise in my life. I got pretty sea sick 3 out of the 4 nights we were there. It was pretty fun when I wasn't sick though. We started out in Port Canaveral, Florida on Sunday. Monday morning we woke up and we were docked in Freeport, the Bahamas. We got of the ship and were going to get a taxi to the shopping area but we saw scooters for rent and decided that would be WAY more fun. It really was. It was interesting remembering to drive on the left side of the road and trying to figure out the speed limit in kilometers.  We did a little shopping and ate some wonderful coconut french toast for lunch and then decided to head back to the ship. We spent the rest of the afternoon just relaxing. There was a really funny comedian that we saw a few times too. The next morning we woke up in Nassau. They had told us that Nassau was the place to go to the beach. So we got up, ate breakfast and headed to the beach. We rode in a pretty sketchy taxi but we arrived safely. Oh man the beach was beautiful. It was so warm and clean and clear (and under control). We swam for a bit and got sunburned even though we put sunscreen on at least 3 times that day. Then we went to a local seafood restaurant/shack that was RIGHT on the ocean. The deck was literally right over the water. We saw some sweet fish swimming around while we ate. It was pretty cool. We then walked around Nassau for a bit and got back on the ship. The next day was just a day at sea where we did some gambling, watched some shows, and ate some food. Overall the trip was amazing and it was so nice to spend some time with my wonderful husband.

Those helmets make us look SEXY!

Shopping in Freeport


Relaxing on deck. I started and finished a book on this trip. First book I've read since Keagan was born. I need to read more...

Riding in the Taxi

The beach in Nassau

Lunch on the ocean and the super sweet fish

Last night on the ship. Let me just end by saying that I am the luckiest girl on the planet. I am so in love with this man. He is my world and I wouldn't know what to do without him. 

Keagan's birth story (before I forget it)

After a pregnancy full of bedrest and the doctor telling me that I probably wouldn't make it full term (HA RIGHT) I was induced at 39 weeks. The doctor, we'll call him Nolte since I'm already sick of typing "the doctor", came in and broke my water at 8:45 a.m. and I was already at a 4.5.  I think I was already in labor cause I had been there since 6 and was already having steady contractions. Nolte decided to not to give me pitocin and to just see what my body would do now that my water was broken. He offered me an epidural, which I kindly rejected, and he left to go take care of other patients. I INSTANTLY started having hardcore contractions and super bad back labor. I was lucky and got the world's best nurse ever. I loved her so much! She offered me some IV painkillers and I GLADLY accepted those. They took the edge off for about 15 minutes and back to pain I went. After an hour the nurse checked me and I was still at a 4.5. I was so mad when she said that but then she continued to tell me that I was almost 100% thinned. HALLELUJAH!!! She then gave me more IV drugs which did a whole lot of NOTHING and said she would check me again in an hour. When she came back I was almost to an 8. Holy cow this was moving so much faster than Dallin's (16 hours). She then stayed in my room and helped me focus on my breathing. I forgot to mention that Trenton and my mom were there and doing an amazing job with helping me but for some reason I do so much better with the nurse than I do with him and my mom. I'm not sure if it's because I'm not afraid to yell at them and tell them to shut it cause I'M IN PAIN but whatever it is I always respond better to the nurse. After about half an hour I was at a 9. Let me tell you that getting through that last centimeter was probably the worst half hour of my life!!! I couldn't believe how much pain I was in and I also couldn't believe that Nolte was just outside on the computer while I felt like I was going to die from all this pain. I know, I know, some of you are thinking just get the friggin epidural. Well after a half an hour of pain I was finally ready to push. BEST FREAKING PART. I love pushing. It is the biggest relief of pressure and pain. After about 3 contractions our sweet little Keagan Vaughn Hegerhorst was born at 12:21 p.m. Weighing in at 8 lbs 4 oz and 20 inches long.

Fresh Start

I know, I know. It's been a while since I've done anything with my blog. Maybe like 2 years or so. OOOPS! I have decided to make it a new priority and to get this thing updated again. Please forgive me for my past and move forward with me into the future :)

Dallin's first trip to the zoo

Dallin has really started to love animals. He is really good at most animal sounds, especially the horsey, so while we were in Boise this weekend we decided to have a Grandma date and take Dallin to the zoo. It was so much fun. He really liked it. He loved just watching the animals as they moved around. The monkeys put on a great show for him and we got to watch the penguins be fed. It was so fun and I can't wait to take him again sometime. Maybe next time we'll take him to the Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake.
