The Backyardigans

The Backyardigans Theme Song

Hi, I'm Pablo.
My name's Tyrone.
I'm Uniqua.
I'm Tasha.
And my name is Austin.
And we're ...

Your backyard friends, the Backyardigans!
Together in the backyard again,
In the place where we belong,
Where we'll prob'ly sing a song,
And we'll maybe dance along.

We've got the whole wide world in our yard to explore.
We always find things we've never seen before.
That's why every day we're back for more
With your friends, the Backyardigans.


Why am I regaling you with the lyrics of the Backyardigans? Because we went to see them last Saturday. Henry really enjoyed the show, in his own way. See, Henry doesn't participate. He doesn't get up and dance. He doesn't sing along. He doesn't call out when asked to. Most of the time, this is even true when he watches television. He wants to observe, not be part of the show. I don't really understand, because other times, he has no problem being the center of attention. Maybe he feels like he might miss something if he is doing those other things. So anyway, he enjoyed the show very much and talked about it the rest of the day. His favorite part was when Pablo was pulled off stage on a wire. There was a loud crash from the sidelines and then Pablo could be heard calling out "I'm okay".


After the show, we decided to be a bit adventurous for dinner. Leslie had found a restaurant with the same name as my last name. We didn't know anything about it, but decided it would be worth checking out. Turns out, it was a "bar and grill" which really meant, it was a sport's bar. The good news is that we were there early so it was almost empty. The even better news is that there were about 20 televisions in the joint, each tuned to a different sporting event. Henry didn't know which way to look, but finally settled on watching his "Cubbies". The food was alright, but it won't become a place we frequent often.
