A Busy (fun) Day

OUR FRIENDS JIM and Dana are visiting from Oh Canada and we just thought we'd throw-up a few photos. Yesterday was especially busy as we tried (successfully) to squeeze a whole lot into a single day. After a quick trip to the boulangerie for fresh bread and croissants, we ventured out for a day that included: a drive through Nice, a stop high above the sea near Eze, lunch in Monaco (at the playground, as usual) and a quick walk-around, a drive to Italy to watch the end of the Milan-Sanremo cycling race (Lance was there but Mark Cavendish won), dinner at a little pizzeria in Sanremo (pizza for the kids, lasagna bolognese for the men), a giggle-filled drive home, and a movie for the grown-ups at night. Not a bad day if you ask us.

Here's a few photos from the last couple of days. I'm going to have to get Jim's camera to show the video he shot of the final sprint at the Milan-Sanremo.

Um, there should be four people in this photo. What is Henry doing?

Henry and Macy at the beach in Antibes.

Madison, Macy, and Henry in Gourdon.

Just above the main port in Monaco.

Henry and Madison: Antibes, France

Some very, very, very nice Team Saxo Bank bikes. I want one.
It's always fun to have friends visit (especially ones that you actually like) and ones you haven't seen in a long time.

Hey, I have a somewhat unrelated question... is it easy enough to drive around Monaco and Cannes and Antibes? I'm renting a car with a friend when we leave Nice for Aix-en-Provence at the end of May and I wanted to stop in the other cities just for a few hours to look around and take pictures.

Too bad Lance broke his collarbone

Good grief!! I haven't seen Jim & Dana for YEARS. How fun to see them on your blog. Looks like a lovely lovely holiday for all. Color me jealous!
