I want to echo what both Deborah and Matt have said in terms of the towns surrounding Marlborough!! I live in Northborough with my husband and two children...slightly older than yours. We enjoy an endless list of recreational activities, both indoors and out, year round! Any of the towns discussed here will satisfy all of your needs in your comfortable price range! While you have a plethora of choices, I would also add Sudbury, Hopkinton and Upton to your list.
To assist you in conducting your own research, I invite you to visit any or all of the following websites. If you prefer, I can send you a relocation package which consists of factual as well as insightful information about the area!
And finally, I would absolutely recommend you work with a real estate agent who specializes in Relocation. These agents are specially trained and are experts at streamlining the home search process. They will show you inventory that BEST MATCHES YOUR NEEDS! In essence, a Relocation Specialist knows how to maximize your time when you are contemplating your move!
Best of luck!

I would ask a financial planner about a three year stay: Most of the information out there would suggest renting, as opposed to owning, would make more sense for a short-time frame like that. A typical mortgage works against you early in the loan.
Best of luck!
I highly recommend that you come to the area for a buying trip and take the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the towns that I mentioned above. As a Realtor that specializes in reocation, it would be my pleasure to spend several days showing you the areas and giving you information about the towns.
Below is all my contact information, please contact me so that I can give you a more thorough answer to your questions and get a better understanding of the type of home you are looking for and when you plan to move.
