Cooper's Big Day
We had a very busy weekend. Leslie was an acrobat in the Lehi Roundup Days parade. Our ward's float was "Oh what if I ran the Circus." Then late that night my Dad came to stay with us and had a great time running around with the kids in the backyard. Cooper was blessed the next day and tons of family were at our house. Then we attended a barbecue for lunch on the 4th and hosted a neighborhood barbecue for dinner. It was great! (It still doesn't quite beat getting to go boating on Cow Pie Beach, though.) As you can see from the top picture, Cooper gets to wear some fun things on his face. The fang-like prongs sticking out are part of an appliance that is pulling his gums closer together. We have to tape the straps to his cheeks. He also now gets to have tape across his lip opening to start stretching the skin to where it is supposed to be. His surgery is scheduled for August 15.
