**UPDATE** After booking months in advance and calling a few weeks ago to verify our stay...The Georgetown Inn just called me to CANCEL :( 

That's ok...we are now staying in the possibly haunted
Hotel Bothwell". 

TIP: Join their "Choice Privileges" rewards (for free) and save on your reservation :) !

"The third floor of this 1927 jazz-era hotel is hopping with the spirit set! Besides seeing numerous ghosts, guests have reported unexplained voices and personal objects that mysteriously go missing in the night."

Last week I traveled to NYC for work, and I left my family with 10 easy, nutritious & delicious dinners! My family loved them and our very busy University Student has requested that I prepare these types of dinners for her while my Husband and I are gone biking the #KatyTrail! I won't have to worry about her eating while we are gone!

It's healthy & addictingly scrumptious!

Our #KatyTrail Bikes

We are using the bikes we've had for a few years. These are the bikes we use for family bike rides on trails and streets. We also used these bikes when we biked 15 miles in downtown 
St. Louis for Pedal the Cause 2014! We are definitely NOT professional cyclists, nor do we have expensive bikes, but I think they'll be sufficient!

My bike is a Schwinn Ranger.

Sal's bike is a Trek Mountain Track. He is planning on purchasing 
for his bike, and testing them out before we leave!

YIKES!! Lesson learned...#BookEarly!!

So, we have read and highlighted "The Complete Katy Trail Guidebook" from cover to cover...a couple of times. Then I went through the book once again...Mile Marker by Mile Marker and created a rough draft of our Itinerary. I also researched each location on the internet and read reviews on tripadvisor. The Katy Trail Trip Planner website was also useful to research and read reviews.

It's January and our trip isn't until May, so I thought we had plenty of time to make our Bed & Breakfast reservations. Oooooooh nooooo, not so! I inquired about staying at the High Street Victorian today, only to receive an email back stating " I'm sorry the rooms booked up pretty quick." I started to panic and immediately starting calling all of the perfect places we had painstakingly researched and chosen. More bad news...I found out the Rendleman Home has been hit by a car and the owner isn't currently taking reservations. He's just not sure when it will be repaired and up and running again. On to our other chosen Bed & Breakfasts....YES!...they all still had openings for our days and we are BOOKED! We also found what we think are superb replacements for the two locations that aren't available to us! It all worked out in the end and we are even more excited now! Every single one of the Bed & Breakfasts owners I spoke with were so very kind and welcoming...we can't wait to meet them in person!
