The first day of the surprise party saw the return of our near annual go-kart racing championship. We had a couple great meals and many drinks at the Gorski's, our fine hosts for the weekend.
The second day of the party involved a BBQ featuring lost Canadians, being Shanghaid into the tunnels beneath Portland and more martinis than someone who really really really really really likes martinis.
The third day of the weekend was a bit more low-key. After a breakfast in which the Burkes left, we went back out to the bocce and baseball field for some more spring time calvinball enjoyment.

A group of us got together to go on a winery tour with Carolyn's cousin. It was very informative and quite tasty to boot. Little did we know that there is a magical land called Livermore that is full of the best zinfandels and pinot noirs in the US.

LucasFilm hosted a great holiday party in San Francisco at the Regency Center. It was my first holiday party like this. Last year DNA had a party at Six Flags but somehow this party was a tad swankier.
There were three floors that we could mill about in. The top floor had a Salsa band and a tarot card reader. The main floor had lots of gambling and nice general purpose band. The lower floor had an employee submitted art gallery and a Jazz band. All three floors had plenty of alcohol and assorted foodstuffs.
I wish I'd gambled a bit more and ran into a few more people, but it was a great night. Fortunately, they even let Mike infiltrate the party and steal all of our trade secrets.

On the way home from a wedding in Minnesota, Carolyn and I came across a wandering Mid-western behemoth. I managed to tame the wild beast so we took some photos of my conquest. After the photos I set him back free. Also, we saw an amazing license plate. Amazing...

I flew down on Friday to help Carolyn pack up and move to San Francisco. I had to get back for work on Monday. So, it was a pretty jam packed couple of days. We didnt make it nearly as far as I would have liked the first day so we had to make a huge haul across a few states on Sunday. Unfortunately because of that crunch, most of the pictures were taken from the passenger's seat. We did make a few stops though, such as our Route 66 detour, which ended up making the trip all the more worthwhile.

I spent my last night in Texas with Carolyn and my dear DNA friends at Gameworks.

Once animation was nearly completed, we had a big ol' wrap party at Rena's loft in Deep Ellum. There was a Brian F. Menz look-a-like contest, a lot of beer, and a lot of pointing. It was fun.

Deanna and Aaron threw a party at their house in Dallas. My brother was in town for the weekend and Carolyn managed to join us as well. Being that I was in Texas, I went as a cowboy. And I grew out some pretty sexy looking pork chop sideburns. Yeehaw!
