Cady’s First Concert

As part of Cady’s Christmas presents, we got tickets to see Barney Live in concert on his Birthday Bash tour, which is the first time he’s toured since 2006. I was so excited to find out about the tour and bought the tickets in November. I’ve been looking forward to it since, but Cady didn’t really know what was going to happen.

Barney's Birthday Bash

We were up late the night before getting ready for the day trip and making her a special iron-on Barney dress. We had to drive two hours to the nearest city where he was performing, but it was well worth it. We timed our drives and missed out on a couple hours of sleep for ourselves so that she would sleep both ways.

Running around the city’s visitor center in her special outfit.

Kids were welcome to get out of their seats and dance in the aisles.


She made a little friend during intermission who shared some snacks.


Some shots taken with our point and shoot of the stars of the show.


Cady’s favorite of Barney’s friends is Baby Bop. This one was especially cute.

My husband’s favorite is Riff. They have a lot in common.

Barney and Friends

During the show she sang, she danced, she did the Itsy Bitsy Spider fingers, she waved, and she said “hi” and “bye” and waved to the characters like she does when she watches at home. She started getting sleepy at the end and just sat in our laps, but she had a really good time and managed to hang in there ’til the end. Now she really thinks that these guys are real, and it’s so cute.
