There are 2 MAJOR problems in your way. To get from Saudi to Turkey you have 2 choices:

1) Iraq. While the north of Iraq (aka Kurdistan) is perfectly safe, the southern part is incredibly dangerous. To further complicate matters, it is extremely difficult to get a visa for Iraq

2) Syria. Considering the full scale civil war taking place in Syria, it is definitely not a place to be visiting. Certainly not with your family. Visas will also be an issue.

So, your only possible route would be to go to the UAE, take the ferry across to Kish, Iran, drive through Iran to Turkey and beyond.

These road trips are done considering the safety first specially when you are travelling with your family, so I think you should be more precocious than adventurous :-))
