Ok, so we have 2 young kids. At various times, either Jake or Mara has been completely crazed about watching “Finding Nemo” over and over.
But, that is not only for that reason that we love Nemo. The movie has so many lines and themes that we love. For example, life has got you down, things going rough “just keep swimming, just keep swimming!”
The best Nemo theme came in a question from our 6 year old Jake. He asked “Why does Nemo’s Dad try so hard to save him, when Nemo tells his Dad that he hates him?” Ric’s response was… “no matter what a son does to make a Daddy sad or upset, and no matter what a son says, a Daddy will always love him”. We also love how at the beginning of the film, Marlin (Nemo’s Dad) tells him to be careful, yet at the end tells him to “go have an adventure”. That is what Ric and I did, by leaving behind our Marketing and Advertising “jobs” to embark on an adventure in PhotoLand! And we are so glad we took the plunge.
With all that said, we decided to make Nemo our mascot. (I hope Pixar will not mind…) At each of our events, he’ll be there with us…and will show up in some interesting spots. We hope you will enjoy Nemo’s adventure as much as we will!
His first adventure…appropriately…was at the Georgia Aquarium.
