K is for my kids and for that time I visited Larry King's house.

 My kids are going to narrate these pics for you.
San Fran Zoo
ME: Can you tell me about this photo?
LAYNE: First let me wash this out. [runs off.] ...OK I'm back. The turtle's just stone. He can't move. I'm laying on his back.
GAVIN: She's getting on that turdle. Laying on it with her tummy.
Angie Berrio Photography
 LAYNE: That's when we lived in our apartment, and I was really shy and I only came out half way.
GAVIN: And you were holding me and without my shoes on. That was a long time ago when I was born.
LAYNE: How old was he?
ME: 7 months old. Not even a year.

Universal Studios a couple of years ago. They were so excited to see Spongebob
 GAVIN: It's Spongebob. I'm thirsty.
LAYNE: Spongebob's my favorite character.
GAVIN: [runs away and back with rainbow gold fish] Have some a dis, mom. [runs off chanting "nah nah nah noon].

That's how we roll.
 GAVIN: That's my new cup. But I lost it.
LAYNE: Gavin is eating very sloppy.
GAVIN: [jumps up.] What's a berry sloppy, mom?
He's got that Mr. Burns conspiratorial look about him. "Excellent, Smithers. Excellent."
 LAYNE: That's a wagon. But it's not real.
GAVIN: We are on a roller coaster. What is it? A roller coaster to connect to another roller coaster. A long one.
Zombie faces.
 LAYNE: We are making funny faces. I like funny faces. [Both kids then demonstrate favorite funny faces.]

Two seconds after this photo was taken, he shot me in the face with that foam rocket.
GAVIN: We are playing in the sand with toys. And you have a toy and I'm gonna show you someting and then I pump it out. What is that, mom?
ME: A foam rocket.
GAVIN: Whoa. I like foam rockets. It's Dale's. But he left it at Chris's house. I want that for my birtday. The one that opens up. I want every single toy for my birtday.
"Someone get me a latte."
 LAYNE: I think I'm saying, "Be careful" to Miles because he's I think he's swimming out far. Except he knows how to swim. So...
Objects may be cuter than they appear.
 LAYNE: We're doing funny faces and that's a pic of me with my new backpack.
GAVIN: Making a funny face.
This was his Captain Underpants phase.
 GAVIN: I'm playing with my stool with my swimsuit on.
LAYNE: That's your underwear!
GAVIN: I'm wearing underwear! I'm driving...going to outer space and driving in outer space in my spaceship.
Festival of Colors. See this post for more info.
 LAYNE: That's us at the Festival of Colors. And I threw some at Trevor. PINK dust at Trevor. [giggles] I tried to throw it in his face.
GAVIN: And I threw orange at Trevor's head. [giggles] and his back [giggles] and his everythi...and his face.
LAYNE: I threw it at his butt! [giggles.]
GAVIN: NO! I DID! [They argue over who threw dust at Trevor's butt.]
Cutest kid ever. 
I also got to visit Larry King's Utah home last summer. He wasn't home, but I did get these photos.

Yes, that's him with the Bushes.

I'm really not that big of a fan. My face just gets overly excited sometimes.

This is only one shelf of his awards. One shelf in one cabinet in one home of his awards.

His balcony.
