Vacation walk around lens

I know. I know.  There are a million “which lens should I buy” threads out there.  I’m gonna ask anyways!  I have a new to me XT2 with the 35mm f2.  Love the camera, love the lens.  I want to add another lens to my kit (using an upcoming vacation as a reason).  At first I was planning on picking up a used 16-80mm f4 at a local shop, but I’ve heard very mixed reviews.  I’m also more of a prime lens shooter anyways.  My wife has a camera with a huge zoom range so I will leave that stuff to her.

What would be some recommendations for another focal length to add to my kit.  I was intrigued by the 27 f2.8, but wondered if it might be too close to what I already have.  Then I thought maybe a 50 or 56 might be nice, but couldn’t I crop in to that with my 35mm in post?  Perhaps the all mighty 16mm 1.4 is the better choice for a walk around lens for documenting my kids.

Curious on thoughts about the best focal length to compliment my 35mm.
