I have entered the world of children's birthday parties thanks to my son's recent entry into kindergarten. My son had his birthday party last week- a rewarding but exhausting project that explains a lot of my absence on my blog lately. Then, this past weekend, he was invited to a party for his classmate, Hailey.

I am not sure if I love the dimensions of this bag- it seems a little "off." Are the handles too long? Too wide? Either way, I knew a six year old would probably like it and I think she did!
