This is a great list!!!
I know you mentioned first aid kit, but we are also taking a small baggie of band aids, Antiseptic wipes and those little foil packages of Antibiotic Ointment - for tiny boo-boos.

We have a 4 yr old and a 2 yr old – so I am expecting a lot of falling down and maybe scrapes. I don’t want to carry a big first aid kit with me to the parks – so now it can stay in the room and I will fill up my baggie each day.

I may have already posted on this thread (can't remember anymore lol) but I have a checklist that is very thourough for me and my family. If anyone would like a copy of it, send me a message with your email, and ill send it to you. You can personalize it towards you and your group and take off the things you dont like.

I bought light weight, thin, fleece baby blankets from the dollar store. They weigh next to nothing. We keep them on our park bag for our boys to use when they get cold in restaurants.
That's a nice idea

I put the clothes in and zip up except for about a couple of inches then I roll the bag to express the air and when the roll gets to end where the zipper is I finish zipping it up. You'd be surprised how compressed the bag can be. Also, this leaves the bag to put the dirty clothes back in so you're not mixing the clean with the dirty.

Just an idea!
Is this good or bad for bag check at the airport?

Thank you so much for all the ideas...we leave in 3 1/2 weeks and we have never been...I am starting to feel overwhelmed...I have a VERY TIGHT dh who is taking me and ds who will turn 3 while we are there. I so want to do the best I can to make dh want to go back....If I go with nothing planned and spend WAY TOO MUCH from not knowing and cause delays from not knowing, he might never take us back!

shutterbug - We have saved tons of money by bringing our own water and jc into the parks with sandwiches and snacks. It helps alot. You can bring in a softsided cooler with a baggie of ice or frozen water bottles. For when my boys were small I would bring a pop bottle (800ml or so)refilled with jc and brought a few plastic tumblers to give them a drink while we were in line. Most of the time they wouldn't drink a whole jc box and they just needed a little drink. Occ we would buy lunch or dinner at the park and would save our money somedays by bringing a lunch. That saved money was later spent on popcorn, mickeybars or dolewhip floats!!!

Just thought of something else to pack... Those Windshield shades so that the vehicle (if you're renting one) isn't super hot...

I just bought some misting fans at Wal-Mart. I also picked up some hand-help fans there too.

A nice tip from another thread is to make sure they work BEFORE you go so you don't end up getting a second mortgage on your house by buying them in the park.
