August picnic!

Getting together for our picnic every year is always something we look forward to. Personally, I was really happy to be able to finally host the event at our home ~ we moved recently, and have enough room now for a large crowd. We had a great turn out and enjoyed catching up with each other while enjoying a pot luck of amazing side dishes along with our BBQ. Thanks for all the goodies everyone! Also, a huge thanks to my husband for manning the grill, and to my dog Buddy for ‘cleaning up’ the ground when something fell. 🙂

A special part of our gathering was spent recognizing and celebrating our friend, Bruce Hahn of Hahn Photographic , as the store is shortly coming to an end.  He will be starting on a new adventure and we are all very excited for him and all that’s ahead for his future.

I remember taking a field trip to Hahn Photographic when I was in college to buy my first film processing tank. I was SO excited to go into the city to a real supply store with all of my classmates. The specialists there were just as professional then as they have been all these years later; especially when I purchased my first Pro Digital camera from them. Whatever question I had as I made my decision, they made sure I was confident with my purchase. We will all miss Hahn Photographic, and will never forget what we learned from them.

I was quite pre-occupied watching over my baby girl running around, but was able to get a few quick shots, so take a peek!    Thanks again to everyone that helped, and to Chris Kogut for bringing me a plant as a house warming gift!  SO sweet! 😀

{Our next meeting is our LAST time at Booksmart Studio; 250 North Goodman 9/14.  6-9pm.  ‘The Art of the Self Assignment with D. Brent Walton – Don’t miss it!}

This was the only photo I didn’t take ~ they convinced me to get IN one.  🙂  Thanks guys!
