Robyn Lively‘s life is about to get a lot more super!

In the second season of her Amazon show Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street, Lively’s character is upgraded into supermom when her son Gortimer gives her a magic mug when she’s feeling overwhelmed.

And while filming the new season – now streaming – the actress got the chance to work with her entire family!

“My husband is recurring on the show,” Lively tells PEOPLE about her actor husband, Bart Johnson (High School Musical), who guest stars series as the father of a character played by Ashley Boettcher. “He plays one of the kid’s dad on this show. It was so fun, we had the best time.”

And that wasn’t the only familiar face on set – their three children got in on the action, too!

Given that they’re both hands-on parents and working actors, the couple’s kids would hang out on set with their parents during the summer months when they didn’t have school. That led to them coming in handy when mom’s young costar, Sloane Morgan Siegel, had to head home later in the day

“Over the summer, my kids would live on set with us and our oldest two would come and read lines off camera for me because Sloane is a minor he would have to leave at a certain time,” Lively explains. “It was like, ‘who is going to do my off camera?’ and I said, ‘what if one of my kids did it?'”

Those memories are the ones that stand out to Lively: “I can’t even begin to tell you how special those experiences were.”

Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street is now streaming on Amazon Prime.
