Can you believe that we are almost at the weekend again? It is way too cold in Orlando right now. My daughter has to wear real winter gear, like these fleece lined gloves and fleece hat and scarf, when I drop her off at the bus stop. What is going on? Luckily, these low temps are supposed to be gone by the weekend and we should see some nice 70 degree weather again. I can’t wait!

Warmer temperatures mean more willingness to get out and do activities, at least for me. So, here’s a list of things to do in Orlando this weekend.
