Olive Us: Eiffel Tower Picnic

April 10, 2014

It’s such a lovely Spring day here in Oakland that I think this Olive Us episode, featuring a Picnic at the Eiffel Tower, fits right in!


As you can imagine, shooting this episode was such a treat. Any excuse to hang out on the Champ de Mars (the huge park next to the Eiffel Tower) is a good one. The food was delicious, the croquet was fun, the kids looked adorable in bright, fresh colors, the sun was out — such a good day!

I hope it brings some sunshine to your own day — and maybe gives you the travel bug as well. : )

I absolutely love this! I’m so hoping that my kids can recreate the experience someday soon :)

Oh my, those adorable cheese boxes! And it looks like you had the park to yourselves – what special memories for the kids.

What a perfect looking picnic basket! My favorite part was when they were all tossing the food and trying to catch it in their mouths :)

Adorable video! I was wondering where you got all the kids shoes? I love the simple little sneakers they are wearing. Can I get them here in the states?
