Default Time to update my boards

I'm looking for suggestion/recommendations on some new boards.

Background: Been snowboarding for 24 years, only about 4 times a year for the last 5 years. I snowboard mostly in PNW with a yearly trip to whistler/blackcomb and sometimes a spring to trip to Mt. Hood.

Style: The mountain is the park.

Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 137
Boot size: 9

Current setups:
Type A 147 w/ bent metal low backs, circa 1998
Sim CD 150, circa 1998 w/ 2008 Burton P1
2013/14 Burton Ruler size 9

Situation: My family is starting to take up snow sports, twin boys started snowboarding last, a 3 year old who will start skiing next year and my wife wants to try snowboarding next year too.

I'm leaning to towards the Rome Mod Rocker, 150 w/ 390 Boos or Nitro Phantom bindings as my all mountain board when I'm riding solo or with the few advanced friends I have.

I'm also looking for a freestyle/park board to play on when I'm riding with my beginner family on the greens. I've been looking at the Skate Banana, Rome Shank and Westmark. I'm looking for something playful and buttery around 145cm.

Any suggestions or comments on the boards listed would be greatly appreciated.
