Lazy Dog Days of Summer

James and I love our 'kids'. We love our 'kids' so much that if we want to go on a bike ride we take them with us in our inSTEP bicycle trailer. Yes, it is very ridiculous, but the joy they get (or maybe the joy we get) out of it makes it worth it.

Both dogs fit comfortably (Mischka weighs 10 pounds and Jack is around 40 pounds), attaches quickly and easily to bikes, and includes a weather shield incase we should get caught in bad weather.
If you happen to be in the St. Charles/St. Louis area we suggest hopping on to the Katy Trail. This Missouri trail covers 225 miles with half of it following the Lewis and Clark’s path along the Missouri river. You can bike, run, or even do horseback riding on this trail. James and I are planning on biking from St. Charles to Augusta (27 miles) and hitting up the numerous wineries in that area, our favorites being Balducci and Montelle. We probably won't be riding our bicycles back, but isn't that what parents are for?
