With 2 young children myself I've been agonising for 18 months or so about an upgrade. Weight is paramount to me for exactly the reasons you stated above. Sony A7x/Fuji XT1/Nikon DF have all been in my crosshairs at some point. XT2 and now an M5 could be a factor, time will tell upon release.
One thing I found strange in this thread is people stating the extra MP of the 5D4 clearly shows, but hardly any of them upgraded to an A7R2 despite being able to use their existing lens selection ? ? ? For me, the price of this body in the UK, as an amateur shooter will never allow me to purchase it. Maybe a 6D2/24-70F4 kit could be a possibility now they can significantly improve it without cannibalizing 5D sales.
The a7Rii can use Canon glass, but not without some issues. It's a fine camera, but a very different tool to a DSLR in terms of AF, build quality, battery life etc.
For Canon landscapers seeking MP and DR it makes sense, but for many other shooters, not so much.
