My autistic son - 29th birthday celebration

Big sister Colleen hosted Colm's 29th birthday party. Although she used all present as guinea pigs to try out her first attempt at Shepherd's Pie, everyone enjoyed themselves and no one has been reported suffering food poisioning.

Colm was in great form and thoroughly enjoyed himself.

Audrey (his enthusiastic girlfriend)came along to share in the celebrations.

Marie baked the birthday cake. It was topped with an impressive confection which was in the style of a picture of a horse. Colm was very impressed with it and insisted that half of it would be put into a container to be shared with the staff of his riding school at a later date.

Joseph enjoyed the cake too... did Orla (I really like this picture).

Now Colm is looking forward to next year when he will start his 3rd decade!

Happy birthday Colm! Looks like everyone had a great time and Colm looks very happy :)

I'm glad Colm enjoyed his day. All involved look like they are having a great time. You can't beat a good old family get together.

All the best

That photo of Orla is fanstastic. She is one beautiful little girl and her eyes are going to melt hearts.

Casdok and Nechtan - Thanks for the birthday greetings! Colm and the rest of us all had a great party.

rosiero - People comment all the time on Orla's looks, eyes and hair; but they also comment on her almost permanent smile and infectious laugh. Looks change and/or fade with time, so it's her smiling attitude to life that I hope most that she keeps!
