My porch is complete!

I had a fun visit from my parents this weekend. They came to Houston for Robbie Hansen's wedding. That was on Friday afternoon and I had them all the way until Sunday morning!
The big project this time was finishing the ceiling of the porch cover my dad built. We've been gradually doing more and more to it, but now I think it's about done! Katherine helped me pick up the bead board at Lowe's earlier this week. I stained some of it prior to their visit, but we did almost all of the work on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.
We only had a ladder and a step stool, so my mom got creative with this Swiffer mop to help hold the boards in place while my dad drilled them into the beams.
After the ceiling was all in place, my dad added the ceiling fan! It works and is lovely out there! Good times with some GREAT parents! :)
