    What a perfect way to enjoy Paris — and how wonderful that it's warm enough to pack a picnic an perch in front of the Eiffel Tower!

    This looks like one of those few "perfect moments" you get in life. I'm jealous πŸ™‚

    How amazing! Such great memories for your immediate and extended family to share. I wish I could have a conversation with my child that starts with…."Honey,remember when we picnicked outside the Eiffel Tower and…" LOL

    I have lived in Paris during 9 years, close to rue Cler. I recommand you the cosy "Pain et chocolat" for breakfast or just a coffee, at 16 avenue de la Motte-Picquet. It was a place where I went with my children. It is very good. Hope you will enjoy ! (the 7Γ¨me arrondissement is definitely my favourite !).

    Amazing – I absolutely love it. How nice that you are not only creating memories with your husband and sons, but also with your sister and her family.
    Not warm in San Francisco today – misty, foggy and cold, but that could all change this afternoon.

    I'm dreaming of spring (and in Paris- wouldn't that be great?) We got a foot of snow in Utah last night!

    It is not warm here in Pennsylvania. However, the snow in our backyard that has been there since the day after Christmas finally all melted on Saturday, so I'd say that's a move in the right direction!

    Picnicking under the Eiffel was a highlight in paris when we visited.

    Warm in San Diego per usual — and that is why I love it.

    What a nice blog!!! Looks like the perfect picnic. Are you staying permanently in Paris? I am a Danish girl living in Israel. We have had really nice weather for some days but rain is on its way. That flea market looks AMAZING OMG. Hugs

    I have a beautiful photo my roommate took of the Eiffel Tower at night. It looks even more beautiful during the day!

    I do indeed live where it's warm- on the sunny coast of California- and I've been enjoying the sunshine! Hope you are too, halfway around the world!!

    okay, this is hysterical – well, maybe not *totally* hysterical, but funny none the less. I was just reading her blog and saw these photos and then, found you completely by accident and you have the same photos! I am so envious of BOTH of you moving your families to France – what a dream! For now, I will have to be satisfied with visiting at least once a year and looking at the real estate there…

    San Diego's getting warm too – though it really gets cold in Southern California…

    I recently started following your blog – really enjoyed reading about the Paris adventures. I lived there for 4 months in 2009, and I miss it dearly!

    Hi, I found this great construction of the Eiffel Tower with Lego Duplo bricks. The construction is a room high and the children love it!
    Making this tower is fun and good for the motoric skills for the youngsters. Have fun!
