It’s been a while since we’ve had one of these .. and so when Nick Bruno invited the rest of the crew in the Anim Dept to his place for a BBQ, Cindy (my wife) and I jumped at it. Also Aaron Halifax ( now in Valve Studios) and family came to visit from Seattle … It has been more then a year since they left and now they have a daughter, Aubrey who’s already 5 months old.

We had a great time eating and getting to know each other and our familys better, outside of work!! I know I did.. ha ha!! Thanks again to Ally and Nick for organizing it. So here are some photos I took there ….sorry I missed some of you guys…my battery was dead by the time some of you came!!
