We’re Back from Florida

We just got back from our most recent trip to Florida yesterday and I had to get some of the pictures from our trip up here.  For those of you who didn't know, we were in Florida for a week. 

Brian had the HFMA ANI conference to attend for four days and then we kicked around a few parks for the last few. 

We stayed at the Nick Hotel with the Perryman's and the Miller's.  The Hotel was cool and the kids had a blast at the massive pool and waterslide area.

We went to Disney for one day and then to Universal for two days.  None of us had been to Universal Studios in Florida.  It was a lot different than the California Studio (no back lot tour Cry ) but it was still a lot of fun.  If you make it to Florida and have a chance, you should check out Universal Islands of Adventure as the park has some very cool rides, especially if you like roller coasters and Marvel Comics characters.  Some of the best were the Hulk and Spider Man rides. 

The Incredible Hulk coaster was Madeline's first upside-down rollercoaster and she liked it so much that she went twice!

Mark was a big daredevil but couldn't ride the upside-down casters due to his hight.  We'll have to get him on those next go around.  He loved the Spider Man ride though and getting to meet Spider Man.  Mary, Mason and Mitchell loved the Dueling Dragons coaster that flips you all over the place while hanging from the track.

Matthew on the other-hand loved the old favorite, Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride over at Disney World's Magic Kingdom and the Buzz Lightyear ride where he and Dad racked up an amazing 312,725 combined points!  To infinity and beyond!

After 7 days, we headed home to begin the move to Texas.  We'll have more on that soon!  In the meantime, take a look at our vacation pics and let us know what you think.  They are located under the photo section.

Take care and God bless!

Going Away Parties

It had to happen.  As we get closer to the day of departure, parties
abound that get us more excited about the adventure in front of us and
sad to leave the friends we've made. {moszoomthumb imgid=875} We just added a few sets of picts
from our Southern Village going away party last weekend at the soccer
fields in SV.

It was a great time!

We had a bounce
house and blow-up slide for the kids along with hot dogs, burgers, and
dessert. We couldn't have asked for a better day and a better send off
from 150+ of our closest friends.


{moszoomthumb imgid=878} Then
on Monday my team scheduled a "staff meeting" at On The Border. It was
an awesome time with the liquid refreshments flowin'. My team geve me a
Cowboy hat with my infamous Revenue Cycle on it and I gave them each a
Fiance Business Intelligence (F.B.I.) hat and told them all to remember
they are the revenue cycle swat team.  I'll miss them all and we
had a great time as you can probably tell from the photos. Thanks to
Hib for taking the pictues. 


Check them out in the Photo section or just click the photos.

We’re in the paper (again)!

The Durham Herald Sun newspaper wasinterviewing NCYTE members recently
for a feature article they were writing when they heard that we we
moving and would be flying Mary and Madeline back to Chapel Hill to
work with company. 

A reporter from the paper called and asked to
interview the girls.  They came over the next day and talked with
Mary, Madeline and Cheryl about NCYTE and their committment to the
company in light of our move. 

The story was very exciting and ran
on Sunday June 4, 2006 on the front page story on the Life section.  You can read the story online here, although they did not post the two pages of photos they included in the story.

Let us know what you think of the article.
