It started by myself wearing a wetsuit, at the railway station! Think anyone could tell?!?!
Then of course had to get him wearing some rubber! Who can say no, to a cute lad in rubber?!?!?
Since it was National Dog Day, of course had to get him wearing this!
Double Spider-Man fun
Oh and my favourite of all, us both wearing Spider-Man suits!!

Remember you only live once! So have fun, when you can!!
