Anyway, this beautiful new computer which has never had a Coke spilled on it, a meal eaten over it, or been dropped from great heights, is all the motivation I need to get back on the blogwagon. The keys don't stick, the mouse works, and it doesn't take forever to do everything. What's stopping me?
Instead of trying to catch you up on the past few months, I'll just move forward like we never stopped. Here's the LoweDown on our last great adventure - Branson Spring Break 2012!
At the end of Alli's Spring Break, which was last week, Ryan and I decided to take Thursday and Friday off and do a mini-vacation to Branson, MO. Usually, our vacations are either centered around our beloved Razorbacks or our beloved ocean, but this time we decided to take a trip almost completely focused on our beloved bebe, Alli!

We couldn't take any pictures inside, but we had a great time. If you don't know, the theme of the show is the Civil War, and the audience and cast are split into sides (North vs. South) and compete against each other. All the while, they serve you dinner, which you have to eat with your hands - no silverware. I cannot believe I picked the carcass of a Cornish hen. We were on the South team, and they actually asked Ryan and I to participate in the show! We would have had to leave Alli alone for about 10 minutes, so we declined, but Ryan pouted about it the rest of the night (until he saw that the task was riding a stick horse around the arena). Our side won almost all of the battles, but then lost at the very end. Alli was pretty distressed until she got her new stuffed horse to console her.

Alli rode some roller coasters, and had to keep telling her mommy to stop grabbing her. I was so afraid our little skinny minnie would fly out!! She rode Thunderation 3 times in a row and probably would have kept going if the park hadn't been closing. We grabbed a quick dinner and headed home, getting in around 10PM and I bet everyone was knocked out by 10:05PM. All in all, a great little weekend trip for our family, and we're definitely planning a return in the near future.
