Switzerland for 8 days - please help with itinerary

Hello, We are a group of 5 ( my husband and I, our 3-year-old, and my 70-year-old parents). We are visiting Switzerland for the first time. We will reach Zurich (from Amsterdam) on the 20th, and leave on the 28th morning. We will have a lot of luggage and so plan to deposit our luggage in Zurich Airport, and leave for whatever our first destination is (maybe Lucerne?). We love gorgeous scenery - both mountains and lakes. We would love to go on part or all of the Glacier Express (if it makes sense), and the Bernina Express if possible (my little one loves trains). From reading these forums, it seems like for a 7-8 day-trip, it would be best to have two bases - one mountain, and the other by a lake, and then make day trips from these 2 places. The list of places we have identified so far from the guide books is below, but I would love to know if these are the right things to see for what is a once-in-a-lifetime dream trip for us. I really welcome your advice and help with creating the right itinerary. - Matterhorn - Aletsch Glacier in the Aletsch region - Jungfrau (I believe we have time to do both Matterhorn and Jungfrau) - Swiss National Park (worth it?) - Chillon Castle (?) - Glaciers in Ticino? - Lake Geneva? Thank you so much for any help/advice.
