The fish tank came today!

The Rexburg Medical Center remodel is coming rapidly to a close. It has been 15 months since we started. There have been days when we thought it would never end. Now it is kind of sad to have the daily challenges of making this work come to an end. We are scheduled to have an open house next week. There will be a big luncheon for all of the employees and a ribbon cutting.

Today the center piece of the front entrance/waiting room arrived. It is a 350 gallon fish tank. It took 16 people to move it into place. The tank weighed 1200 pounds. It will be a salt water tank with all living things inside of it. No plastic plants or rocks. It will be probably Christmas before the aquarium is completely finished as adding fish etc takes time in salt water.

It's going to be so beautiful, just what this town needs!

That's a "holy-cow" fish tank! I don't want to have to get sick to come see it . . . maybe a little microderm would be a good excuse! ! ! Oh wait . . . I'm poor . . . maybe I'll just come visit Nicole!?

That's a little bigger than my 24" salt water tank. It will be awesome. I hope to see it soon.

Mom...did I hear you correctly when you said you would be "sad" to have this remodel come to a close?!? Are you sick in the head? Maybe now you can sit back and enjoy life a little bit (like we are supposed to!) ;)
