I SAW SOME MOVIE STARS!!!

Yep I sure did!!! The Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga is full of stars!!

I met pretty much the whole cast from Finding Nemo!

Jennifer guess who the first one I met was?? Yep I met Dory and she was swimming with sharks. I actually got to pet the shark, but not Dory. She kept swimming away like she was looking for someone.

Then I got to meet Bruce!! I was so excited, but he was a little bit intimidating.

Remember fish are friends not food! (Unless your tilapia or Mahi mahi and then all bets are off. Oh and fish sticks, catfish, crappie, and yellow fin tuna. Can't they be our friends and food?)

A little while later Syd started yelling at me, "Momma, Momma look its squishy!"

And there he was in all his squishiness.

Then we rounded the corner and guess who we saw again? Dory!

Yep she was all over the place. She finally stopped and asked for directions.

We rounded the corner and there he was!!!! Nemo himself!!!! Oh we were sooooooo excited!!! He looked a little irritated though. He kept swimming away from us, so thats why the picture is so fuzzy.

We also got to meet some of his former tank buddies. You all remember Gill don't you?

And this guy was just overly excited about the bubbles.

I think my favorite one to see was Crash. Dude he is just so so cool!!

It was such an awesome experience getting to met all these wonderful actors. We met a couple of others there also, but I will put that post up later.

I think I will go home and watch this movie again. Its like my favorite movie, well except all three Pirates of the Caribbean. I mean hellooooo, Nemo or Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp!! Its a pretty hard decision.

Get outta here...I've never seen so many stars in one location.

Ok, I downloaded the program and actually used it to post today. But for the life of me I still cannot get a water mark on my photos.

I actually bought a book today called "Photoshop For Dummies" This dummy will be working on it all weekend.

Fun post!

Btw, in my dream I didn't call you Valarie, it was always Valarie Lea from TN and now from AL. lol. That was like your whole name.
Now you've made it into a story and now a dream.

Guess what, your not so bright friend finally figured out how to put a blasted watermark on the photo with the live writer. Yay me! You'd never know I have 2 bachelor's and 1 master's degree?! Duh.

What a fun post. I love how you posted videos along with your pictures.

Razor Family Farms said...

Did you say Orlando Bloom? He's mighty fine. Of course, he doesn't hold a candle to Josh. But that's just my opinion.

Blessings!

How fun! When my son was in the hospital in October the pediatrics ward had a salt water tank with several of the Nemo characters. The kids loved it, but were upset that the blowfish didn't blow up for them.
