happy 51st birthday bellflower
this weekend we celebrated bellflower's birthday at the family fun zone - they shut down the street downtown and created a little party. this is the first year without a parade. what a great decision to have this new set up. for those of you who have attended the past parades i think you can agree with us - that free cotton candy and games beats seeing 20 middle school marching bands... anyway. we had a fun hanging out, playing games, eating junk food, and enjoying the inflatable slides.
although we are surrounded by city upon city and concrete we still feel like bellflower is a small town. we are close enough to walk downtown, we run into friends, and its a great gathering for our community. and just a fun trivia fact: my mom was born in bellflower the year it became a city.
