Starting the LONG process of painting the initial outline...
Just about ready to go...
Four hours later...
Before painting in the colors, a bit of cleaning was required
I swept, swept, swept, then vacuumed so we would have a clean canvas to work on..
New tent! Time to try it out!
We ended up taking it back and trading up for a Coleman tent - better quality! (This one had a rip by morning...)
Two coats on the entire border and each state line.
Done and Done!
Enjoy Kiddoes!!! August 16, 2016
Final shot of Hawaii - I'd love to visit the real one someday....
US Map at Dalton Elementary school
It was originally painted in 2000 (we think)
Poor Hawaii :-(
Alaska has seen better days...
This needs work, folks!!!
Olympia Hands On Children's Museum - Olivia's 2nd birthday party
12th anniversary - perfect day to play a symphony concert at the Hayden Lake Country Club
The next twelve should be even better!
Later that afternoon - we had help from the four kiddoes
The first coat basically soaked into the asphalt, so a bit of sloppiness was completely OK
The Western states are deceptively large...
We ended up having to go back to the paint store for an additional four gallons!
