Julianne’s 80th Birthday

My longtime friend Julianne Wartman of Victoria turned 80 on August 11th, 2013.  Her daughter Carol McShane threw a wonderful party for her on Saturday, August 3rd, and all seven of Julianne’s kids and their spouses and many of the grandchildren came to Victoria for the occasion.  Some of Julianne’s siblings, nieces, nephews, and several friends were also in attendance.  I captured many who were there later that afternoon and evening for dinner.
