First time in Swiss - need help with tentative itinerary and location

Hello! We are planning a trip in August 2017. First-timers in Switzerland. Tentative itinerary has 4-5 nights. We are coming from Munich and the flight is out of Zurich so were planning to stay in Zurich-Lucerne area and cover the following in 4 days:
2 Day trips to Mt. Titlis and Rhine Falls
1 day around Zurich
1 day around Lucerne
Thoughts? Open to any and all suggestions.
Also, we are 2 adults and 1 child - should we consider buying Swiss pass?
And what location would be central to stay - Zurich, Lucerne, any other towns? Ideally we'd like to stay in one spot and go everywhere from there but if it's not the best option, we are open to staying in 2 different towns for 2-3 nights in each.
Thanks in advance for all your suggestions!!

I would go straight to Luzern from Munich and work my way back to Zurich.
I guess you do Mr Titlis as a long day trip from Luzern and Rhine Falls from Zurich on a day trip.
