World's Largest Ball of Paint

We painted coat #25,286 and this was so much fun. The lady who was there was extremely nice and answered all of the questions we asked. It was very interesting to hear of all the different countries that people have come from, and about the celebrities who have also come and painted this ball.

We painted coat #23,769! What a wonderful stop. Probably the most unique and fun thing we have done to date! The owners are so nice.

What a great way to break up a trip through the Indiana countryside! I emailed Mike ahead of time to let him know we would be there on a Sunday. I wasn't sure what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised to find Mike and Glenda there to greet us and tell us about the history of the ball. This thing is huge and has its own little house.

We painted coat number 23,743 and received a certificate to verify it.
