GDC 2013!!!


It's been a while since my last post but much has happened in the last several months. I'll get to all of it very soon, but for now I am really excited to announce that I will be speaking at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in Read more

And I'm back!


I know I've said this before, but what a year! I meant to write a lot more these past several months, but Hitman: Absolution took every moment I had. Even when our newest little one, Livia, was born I only got a brief break before diving right back into Read more

stuff...


More than anything, I just wanted a reason to post that image. So, I'm going to be making a couple of additions to the site. If you haven't noticed already, I have added an Animation page (you can click on it at the top). I'll be adding an updated demo Read more

a hell of a year...


Well, hello. It's been a while. 2011 has been one kick in the crotch after another and updating the blog always felt like the last thing I wanted to do at the end of the day. Not that things have gotten any better or easier, but I'm getting the urge Read more

a pox on our house...


(artist rendering) So I have come down with the chicken pox. It sucks. Along with the Norwalk of '06 and the Rotavirus of '08, this falls in my top three worst sicknesses. I wish I could say the time off from work has been relaxing, but it has been a sweaty, Read more

We were lulled into a false sense of security on Saturday with all the beautiful weather, so when we woke up Sunday to more sun, we decided to pack up a little picnic and take a train to Frederiksberg Have. By the time we got there though, the weather had other plans and decided to get super windy and a little chilly. That didn’t stop us though, so we set up camp and had some snacks!

After we finished eating, the kids wanted to go explore the park so we went on a nice walk through a bunch of the trails. It’s a huge park and we only saw a small portion of it before making the trip back home, but the kids had fun ‘discovering new animals’ like squirrels, ladybugs, and snails!

Saturday was the start of the Whitsun Festival here in Copenhagen, which is in it’s 28th year now I think. To kick it off, they have a big parade down Strøget with lots of dancers, music, and costumes. It seemed to be mostly a South American thing, with representatives from Brazil, Columbia, and the like. It was really colorful and the music was great. Emma was putting on a little dance show on the sidelines until one of the dancers pulled her into the parade for a bit…

…which made her whole weekend.

We were really lucky with the weather, which got up to about 25 degrees. Probably a good thing as most of the dancers were almost naked and that would have sucked given our weather as of late.

After, the whole show headed to one of the main parks in town where more live music, dancing, picnics, and just general partying was going on.

We brought along some snacks and kicked a soccer ball around for a bit. It was great to see what this place could be like with a little sunshine. Let’s hope it comes back soon.

Stunt_Evan

So yesterday morning while I was walking Rylee and Leigh was getting Emma ready for school, Evan decided to see if he could make it down the stairs on his bike. As you can see, he didn’t quite make it.

This picture was taken tonight on my cell phone, and the swelling has gone down a lot. He looked far worse after it happened and we had to take him immediately to the doctor to make sure he didn’t do some serious damage. He seems just fine and was trying to climb up and jump off the back of the couch later the same day.

I told him next time he needs to put a little more weight over the back wheel if he wants to make it down all eight stairs.

Emma’s school had to cancel last Wednesday’s field trip to the zoo due to bad weather, so on Thursday (which was a public holiday) we decided to go ourselves.

Being the first real zoo I have ever been to (the game farm doesn’t really count, does it?) we were super impressed. The elephant exhibit was amazing, as was the chimpanzee building.

For a short visit, we were met with a lot of excitement. For starters, a bird pooped on Leigh’s head (yes, like the good husband I am, I took pictures first before helping clean it off, but she won’t let me post them). Then, while Emma was checking out the chimps, one of them charged her scaring the living hell out of the poor little thing. I’m pretty sure she won’t be able to go near a primate again.

On the way home, we stopped off at a park near our place where the cherry blossoms are finally blooming to take the picture above.

We have so many more pictures from that day, but here are a few highlights…

Don’t feed your children to the half-crocodile-half-man…

About a week ago I got a chance to go to my first European football game. It was one of the final matches of the season with both teams playing for the #3 spot in the national league. The local team, Brondby, ended up winning 2-0 and it was a great game.

During the half time intermission they had two kids on the sidelines play Fifa against each other on one of the jumbotrons. There’s no escaping the clutches of EA.


summer, where art thou?

From looking at these pictures, you would think that we’re well on our way to summer. You would be wrong. After about a week of beautiful weather (one day even reaching 23 degrees) we have gone back to conditions that would feel more suitable for November than May. Windy, rainy, cold…bleh.

I really hope we’re in for an amazing summer, as the weather karma-gods owe us big time.
