This and That



1. We had fun watching the All-Star baseball game this week! Caleb made sure he had his Giants shirt and hat on. Trout proves he is already a living legend!

2. Our boys love the Gummy Bear Song. It is super annoying, but they always dance like crazy. You can see a little video here.

3. Have you seen these amazing photos?

4. Caleb used to be afraid to put his face in the water at swim lessons, but I bought him a pair of swim goggles and problem solved!



1. Sometimes you just need to go out for pizza!

2. Great idea for planting herbs in the kitchen!

3. Has anyone read this book? It is on my list!

4. Caleb has been watching the American Ninja Warrior show on TV and he is obsessed. It is funny watching him watch the contestants compete. He gets SO into it! I just sit there and wonder how on Earth did they come up with these courses and why would anyone want to do them? I am obviously not adventurous like my boys:)

5. Tips for visiting the farmers market!


6. Why do grilled veggies taste so much better on a stick? I can’t get enough!

7. Love this patio space.

8. Caleb really wants to see the new Minions movie. Has anyone seen it yet? Good as the first two?

9. This cake! YES!

10. Summer in a skillet!

11. Black and gold!

12. We are headed to Park City today for a little staycation! Make sure you follow us on Instagram and Snapchat (twopeasandpod) for updates! There will be lots of good eats involved:)

  1. Hello Maria, love your blog! I would encourage you to look up a young mother, Maranda Ritrovato, on Facebook to read her post on this movie that she’d taken her 4 year old to see. Her post begins with “Attention”. I tried to copy and pasted her review here but couldn’t.

  2. My kids (they are 6, 4 and 4) LOVE American Ninja Warrior! I have no idea what it is about that show, but they just watch at attention and of course when there’s a commercial they have to replicate the obstacle courses!

  3. Yes I want that cake and the crisp. If only dessert was acceptable for all three meals.

  4. I would encourage you to show your little one how to swim without the use of a mask. If he ever finds himself in water without his mask it might cause him to panic in the water.

    1. He is swimming with and without the goggles now. They just helped give him a little confidence!

  5. I want to make that cake and eat the whole thing….lol…cute pics of the boys and the video of them enjoying their music of choice was hilarious! I’ve now read 2 reviews for Minions saying it’s not as funny as they thought it would be and that it gives the wrong message to kids….here’s the link to one of them and here’s the other one

  6. Minions movie is cute, but not as good as first too. We saw it for my husband’s birthday and he was not disappointed. ๐Ÿ˜‰
