Crabbing is right up there with clamming in Netarts Bay. Dungeness season hasn't kicked in to high gear, but Jamie still managed to pull enough for lunch.

Nick took Mira to her very first party. Mostly, she just slept. But she did a little baby planking, too.

Rugelach Delivery
Rugelach Delivery
After mourning the death of his ice cream machine on Twitter and joking about a wake (with requests for food), former intern and friend of SE extraordinaire Christopher Stephens actually paid a shiva call to the office—with his prize-winning rugelach! Never has the loss of an appliance tasted so sweet. Thanks, Christopher!

Sometimes we carry the light box around the room and pretend to be a white cube ghost monster who eats people. Yeah the excitement never stops. Niki, watch out!

Ice Cream Tasting
Ice Cream Tasting

We received samples of High Road ice cream and it was all FREAKIN' DELICIOUS. Max, Jim, and Paul may not look like they're being overwhelmed by ice cream deliciousness, but they are...on the inside.
