Have I ever told you that I am friends with a mermaid? No, I haven't been drinking... much...
No joke yo, I seriously know a mermaid... and in my daughter's eyes that is WAY better then knowing Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, AND Johnny Depp.
Meet Lauren, my very own mermaid:)
Ok, she's not mine, but she is a friend of mine and we took Luci and Stella to go see her last weekend at the Denver Aquarium.
Luci loves fish, and she had never seen a mermaid (in real life or on TV). Well, let me tell you, she fell in LOVE. I mean, she was absolutely mesmerized by their performance. I have never seen her so into anything! After the show we looked around at all of the cool fish:
And then it was time for the meet and greet. We went and met all three of the mermaids and Luci was in HEAVEN! At first she was a little timid and made me sit with her but after a few minutes we couldn't get her out of the seat.
She didn't want to let the other kids sit with them. Those were HER mermaids!
Unfortunately Lauren will be hanging up her fins and heading to nursing school so I am glad we got to see her before she quit her mermaiding career.
I guess that means there will be an opening for a mermaid position at the Aquarium... tempting but my boobs just aren't big enough to fill those bikinis!
