|The part of the race where we saw Daddy and the boys. They cheered us on and gave us extra running power to finish the race.|
|Henry saw me yelled "Mommy!" and ran up and gave me a big hug.|
It was so relaxed. People were stopping and looking at the animals, taking pictures at every km marker. It was a blast. Especially running and passing Orangutans or chimpanzees on the way. We stopped and look at the baby giraffe named Jubilee because Singapore just celebrated their golden jubilee in 2015.
Cosette did great the first 1km but after that she lost her running powers. I had to keep reminding myself during the run that this was something for us to do together and have a good time. We would walk for a little bit then run for a little bit. I would pick a point and once we passed the sign we would run till we passed this other sign. It worked, and after the 5km mark we ran to the finish line. She wanted to hold hands while we ran together. It was sweet and made my Momma heart almost burst. It was hard for her, but she did it. I am proud of her for finishing and not giving up. Lyndon sneaked into the finishing area and met us at the finish line. For some reason they didn't let people back there, but Lyndon has his ways. He actually just walked to it and no one said anything. Seeing Daddy at the finish line helped give Cosette the extra little push she needed to finish the race
We got these awesome medals for participating. Cosette was really excited to get hers. She has been wearing it proudly around the apartment. She said she had fun, but does not want to do it again. Fair enough.

Clip of us crossing the finish line. I am a dork and we raised our arms up as we cross the finish line in victory.
|We did it! There are four different animals on our shirt. Cosette said the elephant was her favorite and was excited to use the elephant mask.|
|We got to meet some interesting animals as part of the after party.|
|This bird is native to Singapore. It's called a Brahminy Kite.|
|Petting a hedgehog.|
|Taking a picture with our awesome medals. I wanted to do the Olympic thing and bite the medal. Cosette did not thing that was cool. |
I am not sure if this will become a tradition, but I'm glad I got to do this with my girl.
