Porch Cover

My parents came to visit for Susannah's birthday. I'm actually going to let her post about her birthday stuff. My exciting news is that the posts on my porch covers are finally covered with lovely bricks! They got here at noon and my dad got started on it.
When we got home from school, he had both posts up to this level. The only problem was that my dad dropped one of his tools down the hole. It's a good thing Susannah has monkey arms!
We took some cool pictures of my dad working. He used a level to check quite often and they turned out pretty straight!
It was pretty windy that day.
He was a good sport to put up with all the picture taking. This is only a small part of the pictures too!
Here he is putting up the last brick. It worked out perfectly with the amount of bricks and the space to that beam at the top.
Here's a before shot that I took as Ike was coming.
Here's the finished product! Nice work, Dad! Thanks a million!

Aren't we lucky to have dads that seem to know how to do/fix anything? Your porch looks great!

Oh, I like the covering. How did you know how many bricks to order? We're hoping to put a patio covering on soon. We can't really use the backyard in the summer b/c it's too HOT and that's where we get the most sun.
