Got away for a little bit this week. Went up to Omaha, Nebraska. Ben and I have been there several times for his work retreats, but we haven't taken the kids in several years. Had a lot of fun! It was hot, but found ways to cool off and just enjoy being together! While in Omaha, you MUST...
Go to the Henry Doorly Zoo! It is awesome! Our kids loved it as little kids, and still loved it as big kids! It is a cool place!
Visit the desert dome at the zoo--soooo cool!
Visit the aquarium at the zoo--so awesome!
Stay downtown in the Old Market area! There are so many places to eat. We chose some yummy ones. Had dinner one night at Block 16 which Alton Brown says has the best hamburger in the U.S.--Ben tried it--it had ham, a fried egg and huge burger patty. He said it was very good. Their unique fries were also amazing--"Dragon Fries" and "Crab Rangoon Fries" were our favorite.
Walk around on all the trails and around the Heartland of America Lake. So pretty with it's huge fountain.
Eat ice cream at Ted and Wally's---the best ice cream in Omaha. It was right across the street from our hotel which was perfect. Yummy, unique homemade ice cream. Flavors change everyday. Perfect on a hot summer day!
Visit the art museum! It was really cool! Omaha is a fun place that we really enjoyed.
Hope you had a great week! Come back soon!
