South of France ~ Cannes

As you might know, our family got to take a little vacation down to the south of France.  If you are new here {or haven't been paying attention... haha} you might not know that we actually live in city just outside of Lyon, France.  So it was just a four hour drive for us.  

Now I am from southern California and the hubs is from the Bahamas so I have seen my fair share of palm trees and beaches.  The French Riviera, however, is entirely different.  I was amazed at its beauty.  The beautiful sky, crystal blue waters (definitely not like L.A. beaches), the mountains just on the other side.  The old buildings mixed in with beautiful new casinos.  So since I was so impressed with the area, I thought I would take you on a tour with me!  

We stayed in a city called Mougins which was a little inland but closest to the city Cannes.  We saw where the Cannes Film Festival is held each year and got to experience a little French carnival!
 It seems like the sun is always over the beach, just in the perfect location.
Eli and Tae enjoyed a little playground at the hotel.[

 At the French fair, Tae got to have a go at being Bubble Boy!  I think he enjoyed falling more than trying to run around.  For me?  I would have just laid there and tried to take a nap...
 Flying a helicopter is very serious business.  Poor Tae is so big, his head is up against the windshield!

 French Christmas Market.

Cannes was beautiful.  Such an experience.  I only wish I could afford to shop in some of the stores.  But then of course, that goes for most of the little cities on the French Riviera...

And just because I wanted to brighten your day I will leave you with this...

Have a great day!

Looks like a great vacation! I spent 6 weeks in the south and used Nice as my hub and loved it. There's just so much to see in that area. St. Paul du Vence was one of my absolute fav places (not too far from Cannes).
