for lala’s birthday, we participated in a scavenger hunt to benefit the spark organization. the hunt took us all around downtown san diego… overall it was a blast — walked/ran roughly 4 miles and i lost my glasses for 15 minutes.¬†was running around and they somehow fell out of my breast pocket. re-traced my steps and THANKFULLY found them placed on an electrical box. i gotta say, this left an awesome impression of little italy on me
