When I was about 5, my eyes crossed, and I had an operation to fix them. How likely are my children to get that?

In brief: Somewhat, genetics
Strabismus or eyes crossing does tend to run in families, but the genetics is not very clear cut.
Your children should be checked regularly by a pediatric ophthalmologist.
