Fish Tank

**NOTE: New posting in the Addicted To Hoes blog (12/27)**

While we were in Chattanooga visiting Grandma and Grandpa H. for the holidays, we took Brenna to the Aquarium.

Below is what the place looks like. I think my right foot was in the gutter when I took this, that's my only explanation for how crooked this shot is. I promise no alcohol was involved. As you can see, it was a fairly grey day, and we saw our share of light rain while there, but also had some nice weather scattered in between.

Probably my favorite shot, Emily managed to get Brenna to stand next to the penguin height chart. She just happened to stand in profile with the diagram, classic!

Brenna loved watching these guys swim around in their tank. We were even fortunate enough to see one poop into the pool, Mutual Of Omaha's got nothin' on us!

Here is Brenna saying hello to a passerby.

Here's a close up of one of the little buggers, don't know how I got this lucky to catch him whizzing by. Don't let my brilliance blind you, ha!

After the penguin tank, Emily decided to dive in with the lobsters and say hello.

We also stopped by a touch tank full of sting rays and sharks, and here's the evidence of that momentous occasion. From left to right:
Grandpa H's ear, Grandma H., Brenna, Daddy, Uncle Bill, Grandpa W.
Use your imagination, we were looking at something interesting here.

Another favorite of Brenna's was the butterfly garden / hot box. I think I lost about ten pounds of holiday cookies sweating in that exhibit.
Here's a shot of Brenna trying to touch one of the butterflys that was running loose in the jungle. The kid in the stripped shirt was seen here pondering how cool our daughter is, and wishing he could go home with us.

Nothing like a candid action shot. Grandma W is shuffling Brenna off to another part of the butterfly exhibit, with Brenna giving excellent direction. Grandma H is seen in the background looking on.

I took a zillion shots of these guys, and this is the only one that didn't turn out fuzzy.

And finally, here is sweaty Daddy and Brenna soaking it all in.

Stay tuned, I have a TON of pictures to post from this past week, and will upload them according to event. Ta ta!

That penguin height chart shot IS classic. Nicely done, Brenna! I'd comment on the other photos, but after that one of the penguin, I was indeed blinded by your brilliance. Only my superior typing skills make this comment possible as I sit here unseeing. Can't wait to see more. Looks like a fun trip!
