Surprise 50th Birthday party for Brenda

Along with the candy jar, Sandy had planned a bubble-gum bubble blowing contest (I won) and a round of musical chairs. Musical chairs was a big hit and Ziya ended up winning:

After the party, we setup our touch table in Sandy’s living room and played games the rest of the day. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and we got to test out Bio Infiltrators with all four positions controlled with phones. Here we are playing “Temple Raiding
