    Translation of sentence in this context

    What is the meaning of the red sentence in this dialogue? What do "да уж" and "вот что значит" mean in this case? Thanks!

    – Привет! Как отдохнул?
    – Очень хорошо. Мы ездили в горы на Кавказ. Я очень люблю активный отдых. А ты?
    – А мы с семьёй ездили на море. В Хорватию. Для детей самый хороший отдых. Мы плавали на лодке, ездили в горы на экскурсию.
    – А мы ходили в горы, потом плыли по горным рекам, потом снова ходили в горы. Я даже один раз летал на дельтаплане! Это незабываемо!
    – Ну, я не такой экстремал, как ты. Я люблю спокойный, семейный отдых.
    Да уж, вот что значит – семья, дети! Я же холостой. Пока могу делать всё, что я хочу

    Hell, that is what having a family and kids really means OR Hell, that's what family and kids are all about.
    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    "Да уж" is emotional exclamation here.
    For example if someone is complaning about something you can reply by "Да уж!"/"Да уж..." as "Yes, it is horrible!"/"Oh, I understand you..."/"Wow! It sucks...".
    If context is positive it is something like "Cool!", etc.
    It is completely neutral (not slang, not rude, etc).
