Let me preface this by saying that my in-laws are nice people. We generally spend a good deal of time with them, but they can be the over-bearing type. (For example, MIL wanted to host the bachelor party at her house). They love being involved in every detail of our lives, but sometimes they do not understand boundaries.
Anyway, as I've mentioned before, DH is turning 30 next month, so I'm getting a group of friends together to go out in DC and celebrate. It's a surprise and some of his friends are coming from out of town. At this point, at least 5 people will be staying with us that weekend, one of them being DH's older sis.
Last night I was on the phone with this sister, and she said "So, is this a thing that you're inviting parents to? They'd really like to come". (She often likes to be their spokesperson). Uhh, well I definitely wasn't going to invite his parents. Not to disclude them from the celebration, but I mean we're going to be at a bar all night drinking. I just don't see it being a fun environment with his super religious 60 year old parents in the mix. I kinda said that to her in a much nicer way, but I have a feeling they're going to come anyway. I don't get this...and like I said before, our house is pretty much spoken for as far as guests go and we really only have one extra bed. Not to mention the awkwardness of them being at a bar with us?
I just don't think people are going to relax and have a good time if they're around, but I don't know how to tell them not to come???
