Buying D5300. Need help with purchasing one lens.

Hey Everyone,

After doing my research I'm going to purchase the Nikon D5300. I'm getting a great deal on the body and need to purchase a lens.

I'm going to start off with buying one lens and then eventually purchasing another down the line.

This is my fist dslr and I'm invested heavy on the learning side (books, workshops, online).

I know the the glass the is one of the most important purchases I'll be making.

Here's what I plan on shooting to start with:

I'll be mostly taking pictures of people (family, kids) outdoors, maybe indoors sometime with plenty of space (not tight spaces).

I plan on shooting video as well with it. This will be my first time shooting video with a dslr.

I need help with picking out a good lens to start with.

Sorry if I've missed any other important criteria that's needed to determine what lens.
