Poppin’ the Broncos cherry…

The whole fam damily went out to the Broncos preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals…we won…no big deal really. 🙂

We had seats way up in the nosebleeds, but people are right when they say there are no bad seats at Invesco field. We had a great view! I’m including a couple pictures from the event.



The newest edition to the family!


Our newest nephew was born on Friday late afternoon weighing in at 7lbs 13oz and 18 inches long!


Congratulations to Ashley, Michael and big sister Emily!

Visit to Durango

We took a littel roadtrip this weekend and visited Tom & Anj’s folks in Durango, CO. It’s about a 5-6 hour drive each way. We had a great time and saw some amazing sights. I was suprised not to see any snow however. Ah well. We are back in Denver and Adam is at work right now. Our new couches got delivered (finally!) this morning.

I’m attaching some pictures for your enjoyment. 🙂

cliff-jumping.jpg Tom took us to Baker’s Bridge where people jump off. There was a guy fishing under it so the boys decided to jump off a huge cliff instead. The water was FREEZING! (Mountain runoff)

Pix of the new apartment

After much begging and pleading by family members I finally snapped a couple quick shots of our apartment. It’s impossible to get angles that show you how big it is, but this is the basic gist. Hope it satisfies all of your needs until you can visit in person.

Our new couches! couch.jpg

The couches haven’t been delivered yet, much to our disappointment as we bought them a week ago. It’s a full set with couch, loveseat and (my personal favorite) an overstuffed chair! Hooray!

Surprise for Ashley…

So, you know when you are counting on one thing and the opposite happens. In English class we call this irony. In the Price family we call it Ashley’s new baby.

Ashley just went to the doctor this week for a check up on our “niece” who is due in about 6 weeks. When, lo and behold…it’s a boy, not a girl! Guess the little guy was just hiding the goods the first time around! LOL.

So now they are in the process of returning all the pink stuff they had gotten for baby girl and are back to the drawing board on baby names with the clock ticking.

Funny how life switches things up on you isn’t it? 🙂

The Prices resurface! :)

Ok, ok. I know it’s been awhile since we posted on here, but we just finally got internet access. The last post was courtesy of my mom via email. Everything is great here. Not a whole lot to report.  Jobs are going well, we have a great apartment, are making awesome new friends…life good. I will post a couple funny stories in a few days, but there has been requests for pictures.

I’m only attaching a couple below since we don’t have any of our apartment since we moved stuff in. That and we’re getting a new couch delivered (hopefully) this week so it should look different soon. I guess I could do a before and after kind of thing. Wow, I just realized how rambly this is getting. Can ya tell I worked a 12 hour day, whew?!

Hope all is well with all of you. The pictures below are of us enjoying Colorado sporting events: The Denver Broncos training camp and the Colorado Rockies playing the Padres.prices-sideline.jpgprices-rockies.jpg

We have our own place!

 Everything is going well here. Found a place to take my computer in, but it won’t be back for over 2 weeks from when I take it in, so still going to be using the school computer for awhile. We each get a laptop, which is nice. However, can’t get on our blog site or the Ottknot. 😦 Oh well. Not too much longer.

The school is great. I really love it and I think Adam does too. I have some amazing students! One came up to me during passing time and said that he just wanted to thank me on behalf of he and his unit for coming to the school and caring about their education. I’ve never had more attentive kids. It’s amazing.

Unpacked most of the boxes last night. Still have the ones for school, but need bookshelves to put the stuff on. Speaking of, TMO busted my wooden bookshelf and a lamp in the move. It was frustrating finding how they packed things. I heard that the Colorado TMO was cussing the Hawaii guys out because they packed everything to the breaking point. Big shocker…Hawaiians not doing their job correctly! LOL.

Well anyhow, school’s out and I’m beat. I actually ran a mile today and walked 3/4 of one! My goal tomorrow is to run 5 laps and walk 3-4. I’m getting stronger everyday! Pretty cool huh? It’s quite a change running up here in mile-high. Although, the kids are great. As we’re jogging they’re calling out, “I see you workin’ Mrs. Price!” “Keep it up!” “Pace with me, you got it!” It’s hard to not be motivated when your students are cheering you on. Two of them ran with Ana and I even after they had completed their 3 miles so that we would stay motivated. It was really cool. I’ve made lots of new friends here at school. We went out to the movies this weekend and are having a bbq at our new place on Sunday. I’m having such an amazing time.

Off the rock!

Just wanted to let you all know that I finally made it out of Hawaii. Not without a bit of drama (there was a bomb threat at Honolulu airport that threatened to delay flights). I’m at my folks’ house in Portland until the family reunion on next Sunday. We are hoping Adam can meet me here in the middle of this week, seeing as we haven’t seen each other in over a month. 🙂

Hope all is well with you. And HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all of you!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is Susan Price’s 54th birthday! We would like to send her all the love and best wishes possible! 🙂
