Lift Your Eyes to the Hills


We took a slow day watching movies, so I could nurse my cold before our next guests arrived. And James helped me restock at the grocery store before our next (and final) guests arrived: the Abbott family. On Friday, we again drove the alpine loop to Sundance, stopping by Cascade Spring and checking out theContinue reading “Smoke/Break”

KB in PC

My longtime friend Kristen joined us for several days, for what I found out was her first trip to the mountains in the summer! Although she has visited Park City during the winter months, we were honored to show her around without snow on the ground. Bob and Reva, of Crosspoint Pres, had us allContinue reading “KB in PC”

Visits with Vicki

Our dear friend Vicki also joined us for a week. After picking her up at SLC airport, we lunched at Pulp Lifestyle Kitchen and then visited the fantastic Tracy Aviary. The next day we drove down to Heber City for a three hour train ride on the historic Heber Valley Railroad. The line connects HeberContinue reading “Visits with Vicki”

Nana in Utah

At the beginning of our third week in Park City, my mother came to visit and Cappy and Grandma departed to spend the rest of the summer in Red River, NM. We also moved to a larger home in town for the rest of our stay here. When we arrived to our house on Sidewinder,Continue reading “Nana in Utah”

Park City: Week 2

The second week of our stay in Park City (near the Jordanelle Reserve) was filled with fun times. We played in the sand and water near Cappy and Grandma’s RV on the Jordanelle Reservoir. They loved it, but came down with Swimmer’s Itch when they left the water. Apparently people normally only react to Swimmer’sContinue reading “Park City: Week 2”

Independence Day 🇺🇸

Independence Day fell on a Sunday this year, so the holiday seemed to extend over more days than normal. On the 3rd, we spent the morning exploring the McPolin Farm Trail. The original farm was homesteaded in 1886, and the City of Park City purchased it in 1990 to preserve the historic open space. ThatContinue reading “Independence Day 🇺🇸”

Return to Park City

We arrived to Park City on July 1. We are staying in a condo near the Jordanelle Reserve for two weeks (near Cappy and Grandma’s RV park), after which we move to a larger home in town. Our condo is spacious and very nice. We are thankful to spend the next two weeks in suchContinue reading “Return to Park City”

On the Road Again

As the Texas summer heat settled in, the McAndrew family returned to the road in search of cooler weather. Evelyn, Jack, and James left a few days early with Cappy and Grandma in the camper, while Jim and Ashley tied up a few loose ends back home. They made stops at Abilene State Park; PaloContinue reading “On the Road Again”

He is risen!

Jim returned from Utah on Good Friday, and we had a busy Easter weekend. The highlight was definitely a visit from our dear friends the Woodards, who have been missionaries in southwest Asia for the last ten years. They attended Easter service with us and then we spent the rest of the day catching up.
