    Or your waist pack, purse, shopping sack, whatever you carry into the park?

    What's in there? Care to share with us what you carry with you, and why? :D

    I take a bumbag that also looks ok over the shoulder for when I've finished at the parks.
    I take camcorder plus spare battery and tape. (DH carries the camera)
    comb (have to keep looking pretty!)
    I pop some TC's and cash into a pocket of the bumbag (no purse)
    contact lense refresher
    mobile phone (this also has a dictophone to keep info for trippies when I get home)

    I usually keep a lipgloss, face powder, deoderant wipes and perfume in the car glove compartment so that if we go on anywhere after the park closes, I can freshen up.

    I don't! I have me, my room key, a few dollars, a cell phone in my pocket and camera round my neck and that's it

    If it's a quick visit, it's the cc and AP in the pocket. Maybe the camera in it's little bag, with my cell.

    If it's an extended visit, or one with guests or our Seth, then look out! There will be drinks, sandwiches, fresh fruit, veggies, wipes, change of clothes for the boy, small towel, sunscreen, hat, glasses (he takes them off and on) ponchos, and wipes for mosquitos. The camera bag will have the camera, the cell, extra batteries and extra memory card.

    Depending upon the time of year, there will be an umbrella stuck in there somewhere.

    I have my small across the body Kipling Bag which contains a small coin purse, park pass, my glasses in case of problems with contacts, sunscreen, tissues and a small pack of wipes.

    DH carries the camera bag with camera and camcorder.

    DS carries a small backpack with the raincoats in. :D

    Nice! Sharing the load is MUCH nicer that one person lugging it all. Seth is now at the age where he wants his own little backpack.

    Since the advent of Crocs, I no longer carry an extra pair of shoes and socks during the rainy season. :D

    We do carry a soft sided cooler when the boy or other guests are with us. That carries the things that need to be kept cold. Saves a bundle, but more importantly we don't run the risk of food bourne illness with a little one, nor stomach upset due to unfamiliar food.

    Yeah. I'm a freak. :(

    all 3 of us carry a fanny pack, plus I have a mesenger bag...Mickey Mouse of course :). Inside is indiviual anti bacteria wipes( for the potty mostly...I know where my rear has been...yours...not so much!) an personal first aid kit( got them from target...about 1/2 as thick as a deck of cards and just a a bit longer), our cameras and travel size deoderants( we don't do BO!) and of course our travel drink mixes..lipton teas mostly lol. The messenger bag has refills and is put in a locker with the big camera( we go back for refills and about 2 hrs before the fireworks).

    I've only got a small bum bag but it holds so much. CC's, a few $, sunglasses, paper tissues, normal glasses (I need them for seeing close up), used to carry cigarettes but stopped a couple of years ago. Room pass, camera. That's all I can think of but I'm mentally unpacking it so there's sure to be more
