Cooper and Momma get to hang out a lot during basketball season. With all the special holiday schedules and days off, as a business owner, you’re never totally off duty. The good news is that I get to work with an adorable assistant! With Christmas and New Years, we have had funerals the day we were back to work and so we needed gorgeous fresh flowers for our customers. So Cooper and I have headed down to the wholesale house in Perrysburg twice the last few weeks.
This was before Christmas and he is still telling me about lilies. This kid and his memory crack me up!
Right after his 2nd birthday he got to go to the wholesale house for the first time! He LOVED it! I wanted to share some pictures.
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like inside the wholesale house, it’s kind of like a grocery store filled with flowers and supplies. The supplies are in aisles where you can walk up and down and grab what you need. And then inside the giant cooler there are buckets and buckets and rows and rows of flowers that are available for us to hand pick.
The first thing he did was go right to the closest flower to smell them. Unfortunately he picked statice which doesn’t really smell!
Cooper loved the berries!
Then we headed over to check out the miniature carnations.
We almost lost his head inside these roses!
Then we went again on New Years Day. He talked about going to the “flower store” the whole way there.
He picked the perfect flowers to sniff first this time. Check out these amazing garden roses!
And then we found these gorgeous peonies! But it’s funny, the flower he decided was his favorite were the green roses. He talked about them all day!
He loves fist bumping Dan, Dan the Flower Man too. We might have a future florist folks! Hopefully we can go visit Cleveland Plant and Flower again soon! Thanks Dan!
