For this maternity session I suggested we head down to 9 mile creek in Bloomington, since Kaitlyn and Dan live in Bloomington. I grew up in Bloomington, so this gem of a creek is special to me too! I remember being young with my friends walking though the creek, just having so much fun looking for frogs and any other creatures we could find. I say that this is a gem, because when you first get to this part of the creek, it doesn’t look like much. You pull into a very small parking lot with maybe 7 parking spots; then walk to a small opening in the trees where you are greeted by a huge, (I mean HUGE) steep set of stairs. You definitely feel the burn on the way back up. Directly at the bottom of the valley is a beautiful, flowing creek with a bridge and small rushing rapids, well, depends on the day if its rushing or not. That day we were lucky their hasn’t been too much rain here in Minnesota so the creek was pretty calm. Calm enough to climb out on the rocks.
I was a little nervous to let Kaitlyn out there especially in those gorgeous heels. UM… Yeah.. I give her huge props, she is about 35 weeks pregnant and still rocking those heels. I have a feeling this little baby girl will follow right in Moms footsteps and also be a girly girl!
Congrats again and I cannot wait to meet your little one at the end of the month!!!
