12yo and 15yo are certainly old enough to sit through a dinner and participate.  It's the host's duty to ensure that they are engaged in the conversation.  That means both ensuring that the topics are appropriate and comprehensible and specifically engaging the kids, just as they would with any guest.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
