The Backyardigans Live!

We went to see the Backyardigans Live: The Tale of the Mighty Knights on Sunday and I have to say that it was the best show that we have seen with the kids. My favorite was Austin, in case you are wondering. (Psst... Austin is the kangaroo) I have to say that Uniqua really rocked it out though. I will miss the days of Nick Jr. television shows when they are gone. I am not that anxious to move on to SpongeBob Squarepants and Hannah Montana.

We love the Backyardigans at my house. However, since seeing the show I can't get the knight song out of my head.

"We're knights that's right. With smarts and strength. And guts and might.
We're never ever rude. Always polite.
Our knightly skills are out of sight."

I'm going crazy with this song! I am sure that the lady at the bank thought I was nuts since I was humming it unknowingly while waiting for my turn. She smiled at me and said, "We love the Backyardigans too." I am going to have to force the kids to listen to Sara Bareilles for a while in the car until I can return to my normal song frequencies.

And here we are in all our Going to see the Backyardigans glory. Doesn't Breuklyn look thrilled? Ah, family together time.

What a fabulous photo of you three! Breuklyn does have that forced cheesy smile.

I don't know much about the Backyardigans other than that they're very popular now.

My teen keeps playing the same song over and over - now that's annoying! LOL But I do remember when I had to play my songs as loud as I could...altho it wasn't at 6am!!

OH, I just love that pic of you all!! Mikey used to love watching the Backyardigans...until Lij introduced him to the wonderful world that is Spongebob! LOL I call that "junk" tv! When he DID watch it, I was always singing those songs the "float, flutter, fly...rock oh, rock on hilltop high, float, flutter, fly" or what's that other one? "Please and thank you are the something, something.." I forget the words now. LOL I used to sing the intro song and Mikey would tell me to stop singing! LOL

Oh...I remember the days of Nick Jr. I sure do miss them. And I remember walking around the house...or wherever really, singing the songs:) We have been into Sponge Bob for a long while and now Disney Channel is very big in our house...Hannah Montana, Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Drake and Josh...I do REALLY love iCarly and Wizards of Waverly Place;)

Thanks Estee! Now it's stuck in my head. LOL It sounds like y'all had a blast. My 6 year old has moved on to Hannah, and my 4 year old is still into the Backyardigans. Right now I get both stuck in my head. Fun stuff. My cure was making them listen to old school Mariah Carey, but it backfired when Alexis kept trying to hit the high notes. My ears will never be the same.
