Need advice...
I'd like to take my wife and 2 boys on a SHORT and EASY overnighter in Shenandoah Park the first week in April. I'm thinking something like Hawksbill Gap Parking along the AT to Salamander Trail. Overnight it then to Hawksbill Mountain and back along Lower Hawksbill Trail to the parking. Boys will be 4 and 6 and I expect we'll be carrying most of their stuff.
I've never been to the park, so is this a reasonable trip? I want it to be easy but don't want to stay in a campground. Any other suggestions?

Not many miles there. Certainly should be doable with young children. I don't know where you are planning to spend the night. There are some camping restrictions in Shenandoah National Park. You could hike to Rock Springs Hut for the night and camp there.
