Dental Office Grand Opening

On Saturday we had the grand opening for Jason's office. It was complete with food, tours, bounce houses and prizes. As you can see they put the docs to work, 8 years of school just to work as a carnie!!! I was really surprised they had such a great turn out, but hopefully that means Jason will be really busy!!!
This is the adult waiting room. It is set up like a jet and the seats even recline. That glare is coming off of a really nice fish tank.
This is one of the operatories. Each one is themed as a different destination, (that's why you sit in the jet waiting room. get it?). The patients can watch a movie, see their x-rays, or watch patient education videos from that small screen in front of the chair
This is the ortho dept. It has a movie theater theme. That is a large movie screen so the teens can watch a movie while getting their braces adjusted
This is the childrens waiting room. It was hard to get the whole thing in there but it is a castle with a jail, a slide and dress up clothes to play with. They also have a couple x-box 360's for the kiddies to play video games.

This is the pediatric dept. They're not quite finished with the wall mural (they're going to add castles and dragons etc.) but you can see it's still very cute. They also have private operatories for when they have to do sedation dentistry.

finally getting settled

We have had a crazy month!! Jason graduated dental school (hooray!!!), and we moved to sunny AZ, were we have a house (again, hooray!!!) and a brand new car!!!! We have already made some new friends, and Isaac was even invited to a birthday party. We spent the first two weeks here without our furniture or most of our belongings, it was definately an adventure and I was amazed at how messy an empty house could get, (Mema spoiled the boys rotten while she was here so they had plenty of new toys to throw around).
So far we have spent our time exploring our new environment and playing in our blow-up pool in our backyard. We are really excited to go home to Utah next week and see our family. We haven't been home in two years so we decided to make it a long trip and will be there for three weeks.
More exciting news, Cormac (the baby formerly known as Austin) has started walking. We are very proud of him and can't believe how fast he is growing. Before we know it he'll be talking, and then he'll really be able to drive mom nuts!!
