We're the Garrisons. We live in Bonney Lake and were both born and raised in the PNW. We bought Blooming Kids from the Natalis in December 2019 and with the Proctor location having been destroyed in the August fire, we are currently operating out of our home in Bonney Lake and online.
Alison went to school to study elementary education and is a former kindergarten teacher. After having our son, Benjamin, she "retired" from teaching to be a stay at home mama. While pregnant with our daughter, Avery, she worked as a substitute teacher in the Sumner-Bonney Lake School District. Aside from running Blooming Kids and raising babies, Alison enjoys spending time with family, being outdoors, organizing and creating!
Isaiah went to school in Montana to study criminal justice and currently works as a Community Corrections Officer. When he gets a small break from work, being small business owner, husband and daddy duties he enjoys wood working and building anything and everything Alison adds to the "honey-do" list.
We added to our family with our son, Benjamin, born in the spring 2017 and Avery joined us in February in 2019. We're figuring out this parenting thing along they way and loving making memories as a family of four.
We are thrilled to be the owners of blooming kids as of December 2019. We have loved the shop as customers and though we don't currently have a storefront, we are working hard to make shopping easy and carry high-quality items that parents, grandparents and care-givers need and want. Thank you so much for welcoming us with open arms into this community and we look forward to meeting you at future pop-ups and community play dates!
