    Hi, Ganz if you’re reading this! It’s June 21st and I went to log in, except where the login was supposed to be, there was a message saying: Currently Unavailable. Thanks for your patience. I don’t know if this is my computer, or just a problem with the site. Thanks for reading. :)

    I’m hoping to go to the zoo for summer vacation this year or this place called The Wilds where it’s like a safari. I may bring a Webkinz with me so they can enjoy it too and take some pics of course ;) I always bring at least 1 Webkinz on each of my vacations. My pets in Webkinz World will be spending a lot of time in the swimming pool, playing at the arcade on really hot days, and of course relax at the spa on vacation island. My pets favorite thing to do in Webkinz World during the summer is definitely dressing up in the latest summer fashions at Pj’s outlet. They just love all the bright colored clothes that come in the summer :)

    Dear Podkinz, This Summer I will be spending it home with my family, friends, and Webkinz of course! Both me and my webkinz will be relaxing by the pool with our new beach bags and beach towls, a smaller version sewed for my webkinz :) But I’ll probaly be kept busy with my volunteer work that I’ll have plenty of time to do this summer as well as my new youth group I’ve moved into for middle school at my church :) I’m also very X-cited for the upcoming webkinz X and that the Beach House theme is coming back!

    I haven’t been on Twitter in along time and saw a post from the Webkinz Road Trip and I got so excited UNTIL i saw that it was an old post. ;( Many members may not know what the the Road trip was But i sure miss it and the awesome employee’s of Ganz and Webkinz. I will forever be grateful at getting to go to 4 of the five Road trips. Phoenix is in the middle of a serious deadly heatwave so maybe it’s good they aren’t doing it anymore. Why are there no more contests on the Parent site and will we ever have the Peek-a-Newz back? Or the Treasure Hunt?

    I’m mostly just staying home for my summer vacation, but I’m hoping I can invite some of my friends over to go swimming! Some of my friends are on swim teams, but I just like to swim for fun! I’m also volunteering at our library this summer with some other kids! It’s might sound kind of boring, but it’s actually really fun! ~*JaneOfAllTrades*~
