Sparkles and Italy

Mom and Koko spent a lot of time walking together alone in the huge hotels and shopping malls of Las Vegas.  They took so many pictures it would be impossible to post all of them.  But here are a few highlights.

First, Mom saw tons and tons of sparkles and bling in Las Vegas.  She thought these gem-encrusted balls were pretty amusing.  Koko liked the mask and thought Eli would really like it.

Next mom went to a crystal store called Swarovsky to buy replacement earrings. Sadly she lost one of her special diamond earrings she bought herself a while back, so she decided to replace it with something just as sparkly but not as expensive.  This was a good place to find it!  Koko was sitting on the counter looking at more sparkles when this photo was taken.

Next Mom and Koko went to a hotel that looks like it’s from Italy!  First they saw a replica of the Statue of David by Michelangelo.  Not the Teenage Mutant Turtle!  The famous sculptor and painter!

Mom and Koko were embarrassed at first…

The ceilings showed art that looks just like the paintings of Michelangelo too!  The real ones can be seen in Italy.

The outside of the hotel had neat bridges and canals just like Venice, Italy.

Koko sort of wanted to go for a gondola ride but didn’t want to get too close to the water in case he might fall in! 2015-03-11 12.48.06
