Martini Garden Party lasts till 2am!

Me Ra Koh

Last night we had our monthly photography meeting (PUG-Pictage User Group), and we decided to celebrate the season being more than half over with yummy martinis; Green Apple Martinis, Lemon Drop Martinis, Dirty Martinis…you name it, Brian mixed it up. (Just like Tom Cruise in Cocktail! :))

It was our first and is for sure going to be an annual Martini Garden Party event! We had door prizes, Michael brought his whole DJ set up and sweet vintage microphone. He has got to be the BEST DJ out there–besides the nicest guy! Check his site out if you need a DJ!

Who knows what the neighbors thought! πŸ™‚

Here’s Ron, Laurel and Jen! It was Jen’s first time last night to one of our groups (we loved having you Jen!)!

And this last photo is seriously scaring me! Pascaline and Blaze went WILD on all the sugar, and at one point, Pascaline was actually mixing martinis. I’m seriously scared those two took little sips of their own (see my FYI not below). Here’s Pascaline dancing on the couch! πŸ™‚ The highlight is when she asked Ron if he shoots Nikon or Canon. That’s our girl! πŸ™‚

Thanks for coming guys! It was such a great group with so many laughs! Ron Storer, these photos you caught are AWESOME! He’s also got more on his blog! And I think we hit a record of the last few people leaving at almost 2am!

FYI: For those of you who don’t know us well, Pascaline took one turn at shaking the mixer. And the kids didn’t take any martini sips, but they did eat a ton of dessert, and they did dance on the couch (and the dancing on the couch is often a daily thing which Pascaline wants me to learn to appreciate—she’s serious.) πŸ™‚
