For the last sentence "je les ai vus descendre de leur voiture", I wanted to say "je les ai vus en descendant". Would my version basically mean "I saw them while I was getting out of the car"? Or can you use en descendant to refer to the aunt and uncle in this case? Thanks in advance.

If yous say -
Je les ai vus en descendant de la/ma voiture
it means that you saw them whilst getting out of the car and it can only refer to you, the two actions being consecutive :
you see them as you get out of the car.
I hope this helps!
