Cumberland Covered Bridge FestivalMonday, September 14, 2015
Friday night my friend Christy asked me if I wanted to accompany her and her son Eli to the Cumberland Covered Bridge Festival in Matthews, Indiana. Since I have a really weird goal of wanting to eventually attend every festival in Indiana, I said yes. Obviously, I took some pictures (there are also some pictures from the day on Instagram -- like the awesome ice cream we got!).
When we first arrived, it was raining a bit. We went to some of the garage sales in Matthews. I didn't buy anything, but Eli spent the dollar he had gotten from the Tooth Fairy to buy a stuffed dog, which he named Lucky.

By the time we finished eating, the skies were clearing up.

We headed on down to the actual festival, which was on the other side of the Cumberland Covered Bridge.

Though the festival itself wasn't terribly exciting, I still had a lot of fun, and it was nice to get to spend the day with Christy and Eli!
And ice cream happened, which is never a bad thing.
