Knitting the Backyardigans

When it takes just as long to recover from a vacation as you actually spent on the vacation, does that mean you had a lot of fun, or just that you made a 10 hour car trip with two small children?

Not to mention, the air conditioning broke down. It's very difficult to hear audiobooks in the back seat when all the windows are wide open. It's also very hard to color, read, or play with the toys that Mommy so carefully packed for purposes of strategic distraction, when the wind is blowing everything out of your hands. Experienced parents can imagine the horrifying consequences.

It's going to take me a few more weeks to recover.

However! Here I am, back from vacation, with all sorts of Backyardigans fun stuff to talk about. And the funnest (and cutest) Backyardigans idea I've run across lately is the Backyardiknits. Do you love to knit? Do you love the Backyardigans? Then run on over and meet up with this group of knitters who are sharing ideas for knitting projects inspired by the Backyardigans. I don't even knit and I'm tempted to join up!


  1. Well my dear sister, I am busy tending my M-I-L in her time of mourning... access to the internet is nice. If Mom didn't tell you Robert's dad had a heart attack and died... Wow shocker! emotional overload that could use a sister...miss the daily phonechats.

    Since this is a Backyardagigans blog, I will say that I love their songs, I admit it! I'm a mom who likes catchy songs and lets face it their catchy. To bad I don't have any channels in my little house in my little town.... sigh.

  2. I have to tell you sis, that this comment really threw me! I was reading along and thinking to myself, "Someone's really gotten confused and thought this was another blog!" And then it clicked. Sorry about the bad news. :( Give Rob my condolences. If you have the time, feel free to write me at my blog address: backyardigansfan at comcast dot net
