just like …. Hogwarts?

Published by at 4:28 pm under photography


We had a fun weekend which included a tour of the place pictured above. Before I share more photos, I thought I’d have a little fun and run a give away!

Can you guess where we went from the picture above? Don kept telling the boys it was “just like Hogwarts” all the way up there. That seriously made me laugh because he’s never read the books OR stayed awake thru the movies! In fact, this last time I learned that it’s better to go to the movies with my Mother-in-Law to see them because she reads the books and is just as excited as I am to see the movies.

Just leave your guess below, I’ll close the contest at midnight on Wednesday, December 3rd.

What will you win? How about my Candy Cane hostess apron just in time for the Holidays?

Doesn’t matter if you guess it correctly, just leave any guess!

Happy guessing!! 😀

    I have being there!!!:-) Is it Hearst Castle in San Simeon??? 🙂 I hope I win!

  3. Tara says:

    Wellllll…. it LOOKS LIKE Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, but I’m guessing you didn’t take your boys on a tour of that 🙂 So I have no idea. But, that apron would look awfully cute on me 😉

  4. Oh! Oh!! It’s Hearst Castle!! (And no, I didn’t cheat by looking at the comment above) Do you wanna know how I guessed that?? Well, I have a pretty good memory (sometimes) and I remember you telling us when we were in your Sunday School class that is where you went on your honeymoon.

    Caesars Palace, which would be a weird place to take your children. Hmmmm.

  6. Joella says:

    I have no idea… it looks like Greece to me! 🙂 Sounds like you had a great time!

  7. Allison says:

    Hmm…Hearst Castle. I loved it up there and, despite the fall weather, so wanted to jump in that pool!

  8. Lauri says:

    Purty, purty! If it’s warm place, I would like to jump in! That IS the spa at Hogwart’s. The teachers need a place to relax since there is always impending doom there.
    Cute apron! I would be the BOMB at Xmas!

    I’m guessing it’s the Hearst Castle. I was there years ago with my kids.

  10. JanTink says:

    That is the William Hearst Castle in San Simeon, CA. 🙂

  11. Denier says:

    darn it! i can’t guess cause i knew where you were going before you went. BUT if you hadn’t told me i would have guessed cause i’m from the area! i hope you had a blast 🙂

    It’s a place I’d like to be for sure! Unfortunately, I haven’t a clue as to where it is.

    Been there many times myself both at night and during the day. You were at the Hearst Castle in San Simeon, CA.

  17. Cynthia says:

    It reminds me of Vegas but it could be the Hearst Castle in California.
