A photo journal:
Arrive at beautiful Canal Park in Duluth.
Set up comfy viewing spot amongst the masses.
Watch excellent fireworks display over the harbor.
Have son drop his iPod in the rocks and lose it deep down within the cracks. Return the next morning to try to attempt to find it and, if possible, retrieve it. Try not to think about the ridiculous odds of doing so.
Have wife surgically extract paper thin iPod from within the crevices 6 feet below and scream with excitement. Assist by taking pictures for your blog.
Have son be eternally grateful and owe his parents for... oh, I don't know - pretty much LIFE.
Go buy lottery tickets since we must be the luckiest people on the planet.
