Contrary to popular belief, it’s not always all dirty jokes and pranks on the set of a comedy.

For Kevin James and his Grown Ups 2 costars, shooting the sequel to their 2010 hit film proved a great opportunity to spend time with their families.

“[It's] always a fun time with them,” the actor, 48, told PEOPLE ahead of Sunday’s MLB All-Star Legends & Celebrity softball game at New York’s Citi Field.

“We just have a good time. It’s everybody getting together, all the families and the kids. We just enjoyed it, I loved it.”

And the family-friendly fun extended to after the film — costarring Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider — had wrapped and hit theaters.

“I like doing them,” James says of making movies his kidsSienna-Marie, 7½, Shea Joelle, 6, and Kannon Valentine, 2, can enjoy. “I try to do it that way where I’m not too embarrassed watching with my daughters or my son.”

Lucky for the comedian’s children and his wife Steffiana, James did far from disappoint during Sunday’s game, where he was named MVP and got to take the field alongside members of his beloved New York Mets.

“It’s like a dream come true,” he shares. “I’ve been a big fan since basically birth. I get to play near my heroes, so it’s pretty fun.”

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
