You need to take the wrench. Also tire levers, a pump, a patch kit, and a spare tube. If you can see the puncture site and it is not near the valve you may be able to patch without removing the wheel. Get the patch kit with glue, not the peel-off glueless patches..they don't work as well. If you have to take the wheel off you may prefer to slap a new tube on, and decide on patching the old when you get home. Also take a tether for the kid for while you're working...this last is discretionary.
