The following is the translated version (many thanks to Anke) of some fun our boys had with Karsten Kroon's kids.

The Family Kroon
I sleep about 150 days in a hotel. And yes, it gets bored. One of the most beautiful hotel where we stay is the Eurotel in Lanaken, my hometown. Before the Amstel Gold Race, Waalse Pijl and Liege-Bastogne-Liege the team stays here. It's really weird to sleep in a hotel in your own hometown. I have to sleep in a hotel the night before the race, but the other night I sleep at home. With two children it's better to sleep in the hotel the night before a big race, everybody who has children can imagine.
But if I'm honest I miss my family already when I step into the car to go to the hotel. And apparently I'm not the only one, because Sammie couldn't stop saying: "See Daddy" to Anne. So Anne stopped by this afternoon with the children and the dog. Sammie is almost two years old and we're trying to toilet train her. Sometimes this goes very well, other times not so good. This day was not that good. I was in the lobby playing with Sammie when she said: "Kaka Daddy." But it was too late and I had to clean her for about ten minutes. The dog received his water and I fell over it, so the whole carpet in the fancy hotel was wet.
The brothers Andy and Frank Schleck joined us, they both love children. Andy took Lene on his lap and first she threw up on him and then she shit her pants. Frank got with Sammie a biscuit and they both had a lot of fun! Until he came back and asked me if it was possible that she peed on his arm. Yes. We had no new clothes so it was about time that the family Kroon went home. I think personally that the Schleck brothers will enjoy their single-life.
