Covered Bridge Festival

Every year, during the 2nd and 3rd weeks in October is the Covered Bridge Fesival in Park County Indiana and surrounding area. We had the opportunity to go on two different days. During the early 1800's, there were three archiects living in the area who were all designing covered bridges. The bridges didn't really take off across the country due to cost and practicality. I think they are super neat and make for beautiful scenery. We even got to ride in horse drawn wagon over one! Boy were Max's eyes big! Gpa "Mutache" was sure holding on to him tight. Yes, this month we had the joy of hosting both sets of grandparents! We are so thankful to them for driving the distance to see us. Max is already asking when they are coming back to our house! Thanks for all you do grandma's and grandpa's! We love you!
