I would definitely suggest the 16mm, all by itself... It's a great beater lens. You won't ever have to miss those kid shots because you were too busy protecting your precious lens; just store it temporarily without the lens cap and whip it out when needed. In addition, it sounds like you'll be spending a lot of time in the car.... good luck trying to get decent shots with anything other than a 16mm (or less). While having a zoom option sounds nice, not having to even THINK about having to use two hands to compose a shot can make the difference between getting the shot and wishing you weren't fiddling the lens.

Kids move fast... Be ready!
