It’s the Month of Freedom! Today was the Juneteenth Flag Raising Ceremony, lunch plus jazz in the park.
The Juneteenth Flag uses the same colors as the United States Flag – red, white, and blue – to show that formerly enslaved people and their descendants are free Americans, too. The arc on the flag represents a new opportunity, and the burst that outlines the star signifies a new beginning for all. #juneteenth

Happy International Children’s Day! Enjoy this batch of little ladies loving the outdoors. An afternoon trip to the ecological wonderland that is Shangri La will certainly warm hearts and inspire children of all ages to be kind to their world. 🦋
We can look at it this way, time in nature is not leisure time; it’s an essential investment in our children’s health - and, by the way, in our own! 🍃
In celebration of our children, summertime and our beautiful world - we hope to see you soon at Shangri La! 🌺

Play games, roast marshmallows and make some memories on the beach! Ask the rangers your questions, or challenge them to game of gaga ball - the choice is yours! We are so thankful to have @searimstatepark in our backyard, and we look forward to celebrating the next 100 years tomorrow!
You might look at this here cowboy on the beach and think we staged it all. But, we hosted The Texas Outdoor Writers Association’s Annual Conference over the weekend and naturally found ourselves beachside with board member, Herman Brune, who just so happens to be a real-life Texas rancher. Why didn’t we think of this before? A cowboy on the beach, it’s just SO Texas! #loveportarthurtx #towa
