The Greek Islands...

This weekend I went up and hung out with Brice and Cameron in Omaha. WE had planned on going to the zoo but due to some kids fest it was packed and we didn't want to have to deal with the throngs of people so we headed out to the bridge that crosses the Missouri river. It was the same bridge that Brice and I went to on our first date:) We took pictures of Cameron lying on the bridge were Nebraska and Iowa meet. Cameron took a picture of Brice and me too. Me sitting in Iowa and Brice in Nebraska. Pretty much tells our story! Then we went to the Childrens Museum. It was cute. Cameron had been there a couple of times with school but Brice and I had not been there before. I honestly can say we were not impressed but maybe we are a little to grown up. Then our hungry tummies took us to The Greek Islands. A little restuarant that had interesting food. Brice and I shared a combination plate and we got a little bit of everything, some good and some not so hot! We had Dolmades which was beef and rice mixed up and then wrapped in a grape leaf with a lemon sauce poured over. Pastichio which is a pasta dish that is unque, Brice didn't like it but I thought it was good. It's layer of potatoe, cheese, ground beef with cinnamon and then pasta. Chicken Rignati which was basically chicken leg and breast cooked different. Not sure how, but not much to write home about on that one. And then Brice's favorite was the Souvalki which is pork on a shish kabob. We also had greek potaotes. And then for desert, I ordered Baklava and Brice ordered and ice cream cake. The boys both thought the Baklava looked weird but they both loved it:)
