Default Sony a6000 vs Fujifilm x-a3?

Hi there! I`m new around here, hope I do it right!

I`m about to buy my first mirrorless camera (I`m 41). I used to have a Canon slr long ago (35mm!), and I`m using Lumix fh25 and my Iphone 6s now. I`m totally amateur, but I enjoy taking picutres that`s why I`d like to step forward.
My main themes are my kids and travel pictures. My top budget is U$S 600, but I prefferr to spend U$S 550.

That said... I narrowed my search on the Sony A6000 or the Fujifilm X-A3. (mostly based on my bouget and my previous experiences with some of the brands I had in the past (Canon, Kodak, Olympus all of them point and shoot digital cameras), and a bunch of reviews I read here and there.. I found they have very similar features, wich makes me hard to deciede... Mostly I`m interested in photography, not video. But I might shoot a video once in a while...

Anyway, I think that`s it!
Can anybody help me make up my mind?!

-I`m not native english, sorry if I made any mistakes!!-
Thank you all in advance!
Laura.

As with any choice between two interchangeable lens cameras, it's always about the lenses. Sony's 16-50 is a compact (retracting) powerzoom lens (which would drive me nuts, but if you come from P&S cameras, you may be comfortable with that.) It's smaller when the camera is turned off, but the Fuji lens is sharper and has less vignetting and distortion, but slightly more chromatic aberration.

As for the selection of additional lenses, Sony has Fuji beat with a broader range, but quality and price vary considerably.
