"My Family and Me" is the eighteenth episode from the seventh season of Barney & Friends.


Whitney, Gianna, and Nick receive invitations from a mysterious sender who wants them to bring a family treasure. When Barney joins them, he learns about the treasures that the three brought. Nick brought a truck that was once owned by his grandad, Gianna brings teddy bears that she and her sister have, and Whitney brings a bracelet that she was given by her grandmother. They meet up with Mario in the caboose, who also got an invitation and brought a copy of the book Treasure Island that his brother once had. Barney and the kids explore families in depth. They go outside, but no one has arrived yet, which kind of bugs the kids. After a little number, Barney reveals that he sent the picnic invitations and that he invited the kids' families as well. After he magically decorates the park, the kids go off to meet up with their families for the picnic. Whitney asks Barney about his family and he tells her his friends are his family. In the end, the families join Barney and his friends in singing his trademark song.
