The MURPHYS are LIVE from the BEACH CLUB (3/26/11-4/1/11)!!!!!

*~*The MURPHYS are LIVE*~*
Disney's Beach Club Resort
March 26 - April 1, 2011
Hello SPRING BREAK, Goodbye SNOW!!!




WDW Railroad for a scenic trip arooound the Magic Kingdom, ALLLL ABOARD!!!! (March 2010)



Yacht Club (March 2010)



California Grill - My birthday dinner (March 2010)




WELCOME DIS friends to our LIVE report!!!!

Most of you know us by now but just as a refresher .....

Erika = that's me i'm the official trip report keeper and obsessed Disney fan. As you'll notice I'm rarely in any of the pictures because I take them all. I'm a SAHM to two boys and I spend most of my time either on the DIS talking to my buddies on the Resort Board, or on Facebook doing Farmville or chatting with the TwiMoms! Yes I have a LOT of hobbies mostly focused on Disney, Harry Potter, Farmville, and all things TWILIGHT!!!

Brendan = that's my husband, he works for ESPN radio and loves Disney almost as much as I do. He's a thrill seeker, loves all the rides, the faster the better, and especially loves to eat and DRINK his way around the world. He thinks he's the boss (wink wink!) but really that would be me. I make the reservations, book the dinners, make the three ring binder full of our itinerary, do all the packing, planning, etc, so he pretty much just has to come to the airport and I handle the rest.

Nic = formerly known as Nicholas but is now in middle school so he's Nic (age 11, soon to be 12) He is our concierge lounge lizard This boy loves to eat let me tell you. I think we save nearly $100 a day just on drinks and snacks to feed this kid. At age 11 he's already wearing a size 9 1/2 shoe (my husband is a 10) so we are expecting him to be way WAAAYYY taller than us. He loves WDW, especially Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, and everything in Epcot.

Connor = our 9 year old, he is the smart one. He is fully in charge of all maps, directions, and plans ... our future Imagineer I'm sure. He is still our baby and loves Toy Story, Pooh, Lightning McQueen, Buzz Lightyear, and most of all Duffy Bear!!! We met Duffy in January and quickly had to buy him in two different sizes to take home. Now Duffy of course needs a full Epcot wardrobe for his vacation back to WDW. LOL Oh, and I almost forgot to mention, Connor loves LOVES LOVES Legos!

Our plan = Checking in at the BC CL Saturday morning (3/26) for six nights followed by three days in St. Petersburg to visit the beach. A perfect mix I think. Especially since it is 32 degrees here today with SNOW FLURRIES!!!!!

Is everyone ready?????

HERE WE GOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

Hacienda
Ohana

Since we were just in WDW in January we tried not to have many repeats. Also today is my birthday (3/24) so I'm calling this my birthday trip, which means I'm picking all the meals. hee hee

I just started FV in November. I'm Erika Cullen on my level 48 farm and Erika Murphy on my level 26 farm. I haven't gotten enough people yet to get to the English countryside but hopefully I will get over there before we leave. I have a feeling I won't be able to farm there on my mobile FV ap though. I have to go thru detox when we go to WDW because the ap doesn't let you do very much except for plowing and harvesting crops. I am big into orchards and my winery.
