    Congrats to Michael on being with Ganz for 7 years! That’s amazing! I also joined Webkinz in 2007, but a little later on in the year. It really is fun to see how the site evolves over time. It never feels like the same site twice. Summer is fun cos I get to enjoy warmer weather and summertime treats, like a delicious banana split at the local ice-cream place in town. I also look around at the landscapes, and I try to take those influences with me in my Webkinz rooms and yards. I’m also planning to do more landscape photography over the summer with my DSi, which actually has a camera feature on it! Talk about cool gadgets!

    In summer I like swimming, taking bike rides, and even big trips sometimes we go to visit family, and this year I get to go to Michigan Adventure, I also enjoy free time in summer so i can draw, paint, read, play guitar, hopefully learn piano, and play Webkinz! I love playing Webkinz during the summer because there is always so much going on! I always look forward to the marshmallow collection and the wacky carnival sounds fun. And the summer clothing line looks great!

    Dear Gennelle and Mike, i am really looking forward to go to the beach which in fact is next week. I’ll get to see my cousins cute kids including her 6 month old baby nathan who she named after me. Of course i am looking forward to the swimming and the beach. I also can’t for the collection event in webkinz, the prizes are so great especially the book shelf, the canoe couch and the lantern tree! Any way, i wish you a great summer, and of course to the whole ganz crew up there too! PS, i am also looking forward to #onewebkinzworld too
