We get quite a bit of rain during spring and summer; this year in particular was ridiculous in fact. Orlando is mostly hot and humid with some periods where it's cooler, like the cold front we have currently, but I think this winter will actually get pretty chilly (for us). Outside of the rain, it can well suited to B's, though From about June through August most days were ones where Loki didn't want to be outside or couldn't be outside for very long, with the exception being the dog park as there is a lake which he'd go in to cool off.
And I'm just joking about my husband moving I can't even get him to consider moving cross country to Oregon or Washington so there's no way I'd ever get him across an ocean!
Anne, yep Fleets is fully fenced and definitely big enough for a long walk and some squirrels in the wooded area. You and Don should check out ffpp.org, it's a website run by a group of volunteers for the park we regularly go to and has some good pictures of the park. Also Gemini Springs is quite nice, though it's in DeBary so a bit outside of Orlando, but not too bad. So far we've found one B boy about 1 year older than Loki and another who is 1 week younger who we've had playdates with. The guys who own the younger are getting a second B this season and just got a new neighbor who has 2 B's, and since we'd like a 2nd maybe we'll slowly build our own 'Orlando Pack'. Then we'd just need to get Tampa and Orlando together!
