This Brambleton Family Knows That to Get the Most Out of Life, You Just Have to GET OUT THERE!

No grass grows under the Santiago family. They’re always on the go. That’s why David, his wife Ashley and their two daughters chose Brambleton – twice. The Santiagos first bought a home here in 2014, and more recently they moved to a new city-styled townhome, by Knutson Homes, in Brambleton Town Center.

“Brambleton is a truly wonderful place to raise a family,” says David.  “It has parks, biking trails, ponds, pools, tennis courts, volley ball courts, basketball courts, and family-fun activities all year, like camping in Legacy Park and summer concerts. But our new favorite activity is going to the Brambleton Library,” David adds, “because they always have fun activities planned for the kiddos!”

The great outdoors comes right into the Santiago home, with plenty of windows and its rooftop deck. It’s fun for the whole family to look out from their roof onto the Town Center and Legacy Park, and they have some of the best seats – right at home – for the summer concert series.

If you think it’s all play and no work for the Santiagos, that’s not the case. Mom and Dad both have busy careers, and their two girls are in constant motion between school, afternoon activities, time with friends and community involvement. It’s a whirlwind of activity, with this high-energy family at its vortex. When they do find time to relax after getting out and doing so much, the Santiagos simply go out to the great restaurants and shops in Brambleton Town Center, all just a stroll from home.

Speaking of “getting out there,” dad David and the Santiagos’ 10-year-old daughter “got out there” as entrepreneurs recently. Inspired by the great games at Brambleton’s Go Bananas toy store, they decided that it would be fun to create a board game.  After hiring an illustrator, building several different board game prototypes, and doing a lot of playtesting, the board game was launched on Kickstarter. It’s available now at https://www.locomotiongames.com/ and their Kickstarter page can be found here: http://kck.st/37O2OYX
