On Tuesday the guys we had converting the screened porch to a sunroom came to work on it. They got the windows and doors in along with all the insulation. Then on Wednesday returned to finish the wall panels and put the dog door in.

|Fans up, just need lights added - time to celebrate!!|
Once they were done Kevin and Cameron put the fans up and our sunroom was done and ready for use. The transformation is amazing and makes this space so much more usable.
As promised once the room was complete and the dogs could have a space to be indoors as well as have access to go out we celebrated by taking the kids to Disney World. We started at downtown Disney where we walked around then went to guest services and bought our annual passes. There was an annual flower show taking place at Epcot, so we spent the day walking around and looking at the attractions, beautiful flowers and topiaries and riding a few rides.

We visited all the countries represented around the park looking at the beautiful flower displays and topiaries, and later looking for a food place that was air conditioned and didn't have a horrible waiting list. Seems everyone else had the same idea so while we enjoyed the flowers we weren't successful in our search for a cool (meaning air conditioned ) place to eat.

|End of a really fun day. Time to drive over to restaurants for dinner.|
The park eateries were SO crowded we had to head back to Downtown Disney for dinner. After enjoying a nice dinner and the very comfortable coolness of the Splitzville Bowling Lanes and restaurant. We found our vehicles - this actually took a bit of effort, we had all been so hungry and determined to find a food place no one paid attention to where we parked. Oops!! Once in the truck, tired from all the walking and with full bellies both girls fell fast asleep on the trip home. This was the end of a really great day.
Today Cameron is really looking forward to the shed that is due to be delivered, so we can begin working on his living space. Stay tuned - more to come!!
