Checking in from the happiest place on Earth

Hey, we’re at Disneyland!

Really! Probably right now, if you’re reading this on Friday the 5th, we’re totally at Disneyland. 🙂 Today is our last day of this part of the McG Christmas Adventure, and oh gosh, we’re just loving every second of it. Even with the holiday rush… there’s just no such thing as a bad day at Disneyland!

We’ll have more pictures to share when we’re home and rested, after the buzz from next week’s blog contest has died down a bit. But in the meantime, here’s a little glimpse into the last two days of our lives! If you want to see iPhone pictures from throughout the rest of our trip, follow us on Instagram at “chelsea_mcgowan” and “ejmcgowan”.

We were thrilled to have my sister join us on our first day at the Magic Kingdom, and it’s to her we owe this quick family picture in front of the castle!  We’re hoping to get another one today, before we’re all sweaty and exhausted. 🙂

Dorothy and I both got to meet our favorite characters!! I have such fun stories to tell about Dorothy & all the princesses… just makes my heart swell up!

California Adventure yesterday was insanely busy, but it’s SO cool looking. The detail in all Disney parks is incredible, but I especially love the Paradise Pier area… and of course, Cars Land!


The “World of Color” show is the most amazing thing we’ve ever seen. Period. But that wasn’t enough to get Dorothy to stay awake for it. Can you believe she fell asleep riding on Mack’s shoulders like this?

Yeah, we’re all suffering from a little Vacation Delirium…

We’ll be home late Tuesday night, but don’t forget, the blog will be bouncin’ EARLY Monday morning for the start of the “Best of 2012” Contest. We can’t wait to see who comes out victorious this year… and just read all your votes in general. See you on the flip side!
