It was a beautiful day here in sunny Florida. We were so excited to get to see our friend from Kansas City, Shelby who was here on her Senior class trip.
The manatees are not at the springs at this time of the year, they are out and about leaving the springs open for land mammals to enjoy.
We enjoyed our few hours with Shelby and hope we get to see her again tomorrow at the beach.

Yep, balls. Well they are really called cake pops but balls sound funny. I made these for Stacy to take to work for the 4Th annual Mini Masters Golf Tournament he puts on at work. This year in addition to the trophies I made cake pops that some what resemble golf balls.
This was the first time I have made them. I have seen them on several blogs and decided to give it a go. They are easy to make just time consuming.
I started making them last night, I made the cake filling and rolled them in balls and put them in the fridge over night.
Then this morning I put them on the sticks and covered them in the white chocolate bark. Stacy and Paige have had a taste and love them and the people at Stacy's office enjoyed them as well.
Here is a photo of them in action in Stacy's office at the winners table.

Days like this could almost make me like Florida. The beach was perfect Saturday, absolutely perfect! We had our usual picnic, yum! Paige got to bring along friends and Stacy and I took a long walk. We spotted some land that we liked and imagined how we could use it. I want an amazing deck with a outside shower, a fire pit, an air stream trailer, little lights surrounding it, a long table full of wonderful homemade food and chairs filled with people we love and one chair for Pearl. The beach is where I get to look at this smile, I love this smile. I wish life could be like this every day.

Can this already be the third year of egging people? The Prince family tradition continues and Easter Beagle Paige was in true form today. We had a few issues with egg distribution, I think it the spider webs, dog surprises and weeds did not help in even distribution.
We added two little girls to the egging this year it was particularly fun filling the eggs with girlie little surprises. We hear that the little girls loved it and the parents were pleasantly surprised as well. Hurray!
I do hope that the Easter egging continues even with Paige going away next year. We have more fun than you can imagine and we get so much enjoyment planning, sneaking and wondering what people think when they wake up and step outside. Yes there is an Easter Beagle Charlie Brown and she lives in Orlando.

Poor Mr. Hygiene. I don't think this is what he had in mind for his manly truck but Paige and I could not resist. We surprised him yesterday and thought for sure he would have taken them off before he went to work but he was a great sport and left them on. Thanks Mr. Hygiene for being festive.
