We're Josh & Colleen Benefield. We met and started dating while juniors at La Porte High School in La Porte, Texas. We continued dating during our years at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, and after graduating, getting jobs, and moving to Austin, we got hitched in June of 2001.
This blog is dedicated to chronicling the adventures of our family.
Over the week of Spring Break, my mom and dad offered to watch Kate and give Josh and I a little stay-at-home vacation. It was wonderful! Kate spent a fun-filled week in the country, while I had a productive and relaxing week at home. I slept in every day, completed my entire to-do list (everything from spring yard clean up to finishing Kate's baby book), Josh and I ate out multiple times that week with no kiddo in tow (think of it!), and I even had time for some pampering for myself. Now, I've felt a little guilty sharing my wonderful spring break with some other stay-at-home moms, who--whether they admit it or not--tend to have a glazed look of envy when they hear about my week. So, if you're thinking the only pampering you know involves diaper cream and wipes...forgive me, I just had to share. :)
Here are some snapshots that my parents took during Kate's week with them:
