As part of my Armatage 365 photographer duties, I was invited to capture an end of the year party for 5th graders who graduated from Armatage Montessori. Next year, they will attend Anthony Middle School which is why three of the girls in front have on their new school's t-shirt. This photo certainly has a lot of energy since the arms of many of the kids are blurred due to moving so fast. It was fun being a part of their celebration which included a trampoline and dance music. After the sun went down, they were going to watch a movie being projected on the side of the garage.

We celebrated Siri's graduation from a master's degree program at the University of St. Thomas with mojitos and margaritas at La Casita in St. Paul. The blue from Siri's shirt and the TV screen in the background seemed to have created blue spots in the photo.

Happy birthday @cleverkate! To celebrate her birthday, Kate gave her friends a sneak peak of Republic, a new restaurant in the Seven Corners neighborhood. Kate looked smashing in a "girly dress" (her description) which had pops of multi-colored flowers. I know Kate through my friend, Kyle (@dels). They are smart, funny people whom I am glad to know and call friends. Since Kate invited people through Facebook and Twitter, it was so much fun to meet people I've been interacting with on Twitter including Kendra (@backroad), Carson, (@numonia), Meghan (@irishgirl), Conner (@sloped) and many others. I also had fun connecting with people I'd already known but want to spend more time with. So, really, Kate gave her guests a gift. Gathering a bunch of funny, smart people in one space to connect. Kate makes things happen.

Today was little miss Annie's first birthday and I was so happy to be able to celebrate her first year with Erin and Ben and their many friends and family. It was a festive event full of kids around Annie's age. Erin and I share a love of party planning and she did a great job with decorations, food, and entrainment by way of slideshow. Her sister, Liz made these poms by hand and they made a big impact throughout the house. Thank you Erin, Ben and and Annie for the great end to my weekend.
I attempted my first 365 photo project in 2011. I made it to Day 246.
