Double the Fun

Saturday my Dad's brother (Uncle Rocky) came by to visit and help dad split some firewood. He brought his grandson, Kaden, along to play. Here's a brief history on the 2 Kaidens. My cousin, Shelly, named her son Kaden just a few months after my Kaiden was born. I have to admit I was pretty annoyed, after all she did take my name even if she left out the 'i'! It still bugs me a little but we're not close and I figure we'd probably rarely see each other. I was right b/c this was the first time that we've seen Kaden #2. The boys had a blast together and were running all over the place and even helped stack some firewood. It was really hard trying to talk or correct either Kaiden b/c you'd either get both of their attention or neither! Another funny point is that Kaden #2 calls my Uncle Rocky, Papa. So we had two Kaidens and two Papas. It was a little confusing but more fun than anything. For all you genealogy buffs here's a question, If Shelly is my 1st cousin and her son, Kaden, is my 2nd cousin (right?)- what does that make Kaiden and Kaden?
Both Kaidens meeting for the 1st time. I guess Kaiden is showing off his 6 pack!

Looks like the Ka(i)dens had a great time playing with one another.

First cousins once removed maybe?? Looks like a lot of fun! I like the way you spell Kaiden better!

Hmm... Is that where "once removed" comes in? We have the same confusion. Josh's cousin has a daughter that we see a lot, but we're not sure exactly how she and Ayden are related.

They are just plain cousins. That's how it works with all my family on the Mexican side. If they are your age: cousin. If older: aunt or uncle.

I'm on the fence...3rd cousins or 2nd cousins once removed??? Let me know what you find out! I'm sure that day was confusing, but at least they had fun together. Oh, and if you never figure it out, just skip the formalities and say the boys are cousins. No one will know you're secretly lying because you don't really know what they are =)

I with everyone else... I have no idea what they would be called. I love the picture of Kaiden showing off his six pack!
