This is extemely common with children of these ages. With your 3 year old you can try a star chart and reward system [look this up on Google or previous replies on this subject on this forum].Your 5 year old is now old enough for treatment. There are many successful treatments available so he should be taken to see his paediatrician about this bed wetting problem.
