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 :)
Is ulive iPad comparable? It’s not working for me
Looks so good! I will check out olive us.
My 3 year old loves these. I think we’ve seen each one.
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?
We are having a sip n see for my newborn son over Memorial Day so I am looking for an outfit for him!
