Hello my dear friends!  How is March treating you so far?  Did you have a good February? We enjoyed ours, although it did feel like this month went fast! 😉

So Mr. Bingley got himself a new toy….

And we’ve been having some fun with it.

Look who wants to go to the beach now… (Typically I am the one always ready for the beach, and Mr. Bingley is the one who needs to be persuaded to come!) Continue reading »
