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.

And your mom delights in the amazing fact that her grandsons are growing up in the same block of Bellflower that she did. Who would have ever believed it! Thanks for the pictures. Love, Mom

As the parent of a Mayfair HIGH SCHOOL band member, and a past participant myself (Downey HS many years ago), I miss the parade!!! At least my then freshman got to participate in his first and last one last year. It looks like you guys had a fun day at the fun zone though!
Your boys are so handsome and growing up way too fast!! Come have lunch with us at BCS sometime soon!
