|Hanging out in the Gaslamp Quarter, a mecca of shops, bars and restaurants.|
We drove to the Gaslamp Quarter, one of the historic parts of San Diego, where we window-shopped and explored local restaurants and a favorite chain. Being deprived of a Pinkberry in San Francisco (except for one at the fabulous Virgin America terminal at the airport), I'm always excited to enjoy a cup of my favorite frozen yogurt. It's the little things.
Because Gaslamp is so close to Petco Park, we had no trouble finding a surplus of sports bars so that Spencer could watch his beloved San Francisco Giants in the playoffs. To the chagrin of Padres fans, we cheered the Giants on through the excruciatingly painful NLDS versus the Reds, the I'm-going-to-have-a-heart-attack NLCS versus the Cardinals, and finally, the smooth run to the championship versus the Tigers. WORLD SERIES CHAMPS!

Of course, what's a visit to San Diego without a trip to its world famous zoo?
