04/15/2015 at 10:30 AM ET

Extra host Mario Lopez and wife Courtney enjoyed a romantic weekend in Miami Beach before he presided over the city’s Gay Pride parade Sunday as Grand Marshal.

With blue skies and warm, sunny weather, it also turned out to be a fun date for the busy parents of two young children, Gia Francesca, 4½, and Dominic, 19 months.

“We are lucky that we have such a great support system with our moms so Courtney was able to come to Miami Beach with me this weekend,” Lopez, 41, tells PEOPLE during the parade’s day-long festivities which attracted more than 100,000 people.

“We have full schedules in California, and it is important for us to get an occasional break.”

There’s nothing better than going home after a long day’s work and hearing the word “Daddy!”

Well, at least according to Mario Lopez.

In a recent interview with Mini Magazine, the Extra host could not help but dish about his life at home.

“If it’s a horrible day — tough or long — I come home, go to the door and little kids yell, ‘Daddy!’ it makes it all better,” Lopez says. “It’s only complemented my life.”

Hoppy Easter!

The Easter Bunny has officially hopped into our homes, hid all the eggs and left lots of loot for some bunny to find.

But before the bunny’s big arrival, everyone from Kim Kardashian to Alyson Hannigan went to work creating the best baskets for their littlest loves. Meanwhile, Mario Lopez‘s daughter Gia and son Nico had a mini meet and greet with their new furry friend.

And the snapshots celebs shared on Sunday morning were to dye for: Country star Justin Moore‘s candid moment of his daughters with their colorful confections was eggs-tra adorable.

There’s no place like … a party!

On Saturday, Mario and Courtney Lopez invited over 40 family and friends to join them in celebrating daughter Gia and son Dominic‘s birthdays at PLAY Indoor Playground in Glendale, California.

Guests were greeted by a sign that read, “Bell out of order, please knock,” and were invited to follow the yellow brick road into the Wizard of Oz-themed party room, which had been decorated with hot air balloons hanging from the ceiling and play stations set up to look like scenes from the movie.

“We really enjoyed seeing the kids run around like crazy and having so much fun playing in the bouncy,” Courtney tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Extra host Mario Lopez is having a sporty summer with his two young children!

Between swimming every day in their new pool and heading to local parks in Los Angeles with biking and jogging strollers, the doting father spends his free time introducing his kids, daughter Gia Francesca, 3½, and son Dominic, 10 months, to the great outdoors.

He adds, “We all love summer because we can be outside and get a lot of exercise while having fun.”
