Last weekend the Bergens and Fosters headed to Omaha for a mini vacation. While we were only in Omaha for less than 48 hours, due to a strenuous irrigating schedule, we did pack many stops into our trip. On Friday night we went to Granite City Brewery for supper and my favorite dish, tomato bacon pizza, was awesome. After supper we had to stop at Cheesecake Factory for dessert because we couldn't resist.
On Saturday morning we went to Amatos for their famous Ricotta Pancakes, which were featured on Diners, Drive ins and Dives on the Food Network. While Mike thought the pancakes were good, they didn't compare to the ricotta pancakes he had in South Dakota as a teenager. While we were waiting for our food Mike taught Ava a new trick.
After breakfast we headed to the Henry Doorly Zoo for Ava's first zoo experience.
For supper on Saturday night we went to Ann's favorite restaurant, Sushi Japan, where you get to cook your own food at your table.
We had a great weekend in Omaha. The only thing that would have made it better would have been a little rain, so our trip could have been longer.
