I will be taking uninvited kids to a birthday party...acceptable?

My middle child was invited to a birthday at an indoor trampoline facility for this afternoon. I had originally asked my BIL to come by and sit with the other kids. Well he just called and he has to go into work for an emergency.

So I will be taking my other two kids. Now it is open to the public while the party is going on. so I figured I would pay for them to play and my middle son can go do the party thing.

Is that acceptable?

Yes since you are paying for them separately.

Yes... Your money.  

All is in balance.

As long as you cover their cost and don't expect them to have cake/ect with the party (unless asked of course)

I agree but I would keep them away from the food and cake and another party activities.

Thye are 7 and 12. I've explained to them that their brother is doing a party and they are just going to play. They're fine with that. I would assume there is a party room that they just won't go in.

As long as it is open to the public as well as the birthday party I don't see an issue.

Even if they are asked I won't allow them to have any party things. Any gracious host would of course ask...but they weren't prepared for the kids, and I know that.
