Hogwarts Wondrous Magical Castle

Two weeks ago today, we were lucky enough to be at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in sunny Orlando Florida!  It was as wondrous and magical as we expected and Jax was excited beyond words!  We had a wonderful feast at The Three Broomsticks and drank lots of yummy {non-alcoholic} Butter Beer.

The rides were awesome as was the scenery!  I couldn't stop looking at how beautiful everything surrounding us was.  The wizardly architects at Universal Studios did a fantastic job making us feel like we were set back in time {1000+} years on the edge of black lake near Scotland!  It was truly amazing....
So... today I'm not in sunnOrlando, but in snowy North Carolina recovering from oral surgery yesterday and entertaining 4 little monsters.  Jax and I were scanning through my photos this morning for a Pixel Perfect entry and I came across this picture I took of Hogwarts Castle.  Jax begged me to make it wild and magial looking like a movie poster!  What??  wiland magical is not my usual editing style, but I gave it a shot for him.  He loves how it turned out!  It's a little weirdo for mom, but hey that's what life's all about with boys.  
Hope you all have a wizardly magical day!

I love the edit. So spooky and otherworldly! Definitely weird, but fitting. And I'm understanding the "boy mind". ;)
