A CS 33 might be a good choice as well. The CS 36 is out of your price range. A C&C 33 or 34 is great, but watch for soaked balsa. Lake Superior can get hairy, I hear...and damn cold...so you might want to consider a boat that can carry an Esper/Webasto system or at least a diesel bulkhead heater, if only to extend the short season you've got. On the upside, favour fuel tankage over water tankage, because you can carry bottles from shore and in a pinch Superior is still clean enough to drink out of, or so I would assume. Erie, not so much.

Well...I'm gonna suggest you take a look at a center cockpit boat like the Irwin 37--38. With the kids aboard...it is really nice to have some privacy and a real aft cabin. The price range for these should be doable for you but condition on the used market is very variable so you might have to look a bit to find the right one.

Bluesmoods is on a distinguished road
If you are looking to go used, Stay with a name brand quailty boat. If you are going new, I highly recommend the Dehler, The Dufour, The Tartan..
You will find boats betwen 32 and 34 feet by those manufactures that will really provide a lot more "fun" sailing and capability than say the Catalina type of boat.. ( I just sold my Catalina that I bought new).

CS boats - the 30 and the 33 can be had in your price range - are the best boats in the world. They are faster than any other boat. They are better built than any other boat, and a recent study suggests that children who sail on them perform better in advanced mathematical and spatial skills testing

Seriously though, they are an option that you should consider...
