Are they twins?

I learned a lot about twins while staying with my friends Ben and Allison. Everywhere we went, people gawked, smiled, and talked to the girls. Take the children in the above picture. We were trying on boots at Nordstrom when the children came over to say hi to Rosie and Evie. The girls were tickled, teased, and gently mauled and smiled during the entire process. Where were the parents of the children? They were on a different bench trying on shoes and I'm sure they appreciated that we provided entertainment so they could try on shoes in peace.  Ben and Allison said that many people ask which one is the boy even though the girls would be wearing bows and/or dresses. Apparently, most of America think that every set of twin has one boy and one girl. Who knew?
