It's cattiness on both parts.  We all know that if SIL sent tickets for you all to see her, y'all would not go.  He was poking her KNOWING her response/answer.  I would have just left it all alone.  Some people (and yes, that means family) just do not need to be entertained.

If SIL wants to bring out BM and SD, that's fine.  I don't see the issue.  You say you're not close to her and you're fine with that.  Why would you expect that she'd shell out money to fly you guys out?

I must be missing something.  Why would you even WANT to go if you don't like her?

I would tell DH to leave the other kids out of it. She is the one missing out on them. Maybe you all could go someplace with your kids while BM and SD are at SILs?

Also, maybe SIL is trying to make up for SD being a COD? I know that my MIL has some favortism to SS11 as he is her only grandchild (out of 9) that is a COD. Just a thought.

 DH should just let things go. You and SIL don't have a great relationship, so be it. Sometimes "family" relationships are the most strained because of all the expectations involved. Just because she is your SIL doesn't mean you 2 have to be best buds. I know you get that, but your DH needs to be alright with it. He may feel bad because it's his sister and he some how feels almost responsible. But he isn't, she is an adult. Have a discussion with DH that his statement may have actually worsened the situation. Ask him to please not do it again.

I don't think OP expects SIL to pay for them to go out there; I don't think OP is even saying she wants to go.

What got from this is OP is ticked it was put out on a public forum like fb and she's venting- which I completely understandable, IMO. And polling the community for reactions if in her place.
