We also rented a car so that we could travel to other fun sites. One place we visited was Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, in between Nice and Monaco. It was a gorgeous mansion built for a Socialite named Beatrice. It was very gorgeous inside, and we had little radios that would explain things and give us a background story about everything. It was hard to enjoy it with Jacob though. We actually tried this little leash that we had. I always thought these were weird, but I was desperate to keep him close! He hated it though, and I felt like I was walking a dog, so it didn't last very long.

Another day we drove to Monaco. We parked near the Monte Carlo Casino and walked around. It was super fancy, and there were nice cars everywhere. But I was surprised to also see a lot of kids. Lots of people were pushing strollers around.

On another day, we took a ferry to a little island called lle Sainte Marguerite. The best part of our visit here was the Nutella filled beignets! They were so awesome. And Jon and Kevin loved the water--it was pretty rocky so I couldn't take Jacob very far out into it.
On our last day in France, we decided to spend the whole day in Antibes. We took Jacob to the park, rode a little tour train (which Jacob fell asleep on), spent time at the beach, ate good food, and walked around the cool shops.
Here is a video of Jacob running and saying some french words:)
