How did you celebrate your ninth birthday?
Ty
We went to see—
Tr
Monsters, Inc.!
Ty
I invited my best, best, bestest, best friend, Sebastian. Usually we go to Chuck E. Cheese. I wouldn’t be surprised if we even went there when we turned two!

You guys star in your own Web videos. Do you want to be in the spotlight forever?
Ty
Not really. I want to be an entrepreneur someday. 

Wow! Nice word. Do you know what it means?
Ty
It means you can be a lot of things. So I want to be a basketball player and make comic books. 

And you, Tristin?
Tr I want to work at the Art Farm in the City because I really like animals, or be a lawyer like my mommy. And some people think it’s weird, but...
Ty
He wants to be a fashion designer!

Awesome! What kinds of clothes would you make?

Tr
Depends on the weather. If it’s cold, darker. If it’s hot, lighter clothes. If it’s just in the middle, it’ll probably be something like light brown or dark green.

Any summer plans?
Tr
We go to a hotel in New Jersey. It has a Jacuzzi, which my mommy likes.
Ty
And one time, I did a front flip in the pool.
