Gotta say my kids love an adventure and an opportunity to explore something new is an opportunity grabbed with both hands… So when we received tickets for the Cape Town Sixes Sport and Cultural Festival this past weekend I knew that we would enjoy it. It turns out that despite never ever having been to a cricket match in their lives before, they loved it. In fact, the gang has discovered their new favourite sport, and I predict many afternoons of beach cricket in our future. I know how even are my kids so deprived, they have never been to an actual match before… they quickly had to learn the ins and outs of cricket and then off we went and they absolutely loved it…

And suddenly we became a sporting family…
