Each kid had a backpack carryon.
I had a backpack with laptop, camera gear, and other electronics
DW had a small wheeled carryon that had 24 hours worth of clothing (and swimsuits). this is MANDATORY any time I fly.

Now, to save a little $$... we have the Delta AmEx card. That entitles us to 1 free checked bag each (up to 9 travelers). It's free for the first year. I got one in 2011 before our Disney trip (same luggage as above), cancelled it at the year mark and DW got one for our Mexico trip. So we have saved $300 in luggage fees alone.

In that year, DW got enough miles so we're paying for our plane tickets for vacation next year with miles ($400).

If you'd like some more information, let me know.
We also have a Delta AMEX card. Delta has a lot of flights in our area so we have taken advantage of the card many times to get free checked baggage and priority boarding. After the first year, there is a fee; however, we get a companion ticket annually and we use this to fly to Vegas every year. I enjoy getting the Delta miles as well, however, seem to be needing more than the advertised 25k for most itineraries.
