Cozzie loves his parents but also loves books and being read to so we were settled on the couch with his stack of books as they left so there was little protest to their departure.
After breakfast, Cozzie got to help wash dishes and then dish washing became play time in the soapy water and eventually it got to the pouring water out of the sink stage so we had to wrap things up a little before he was ready to be removed from the fun he was having.

|"You've got to be quick with that camera, Grandma Lee. I'm pretty quick getting off these things."|
Our day alone in Nice has gone well. Our little hotel "home" is comfortable and has everything we need. We'll get a few things at a grocery store tomorrow as Cozzie loves strawberries - "a B, a B, a B" - and we're out of those. And we must try more of the yogurt options available across the street at that huge supermarket.
We're remembering that this is Holy Week and Jesus said,
"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will have life even if he dies. And he who lives and believes in me will never die." John 11:25
