The Parker family is in for a bumpy ride. It all starts when their grandmother (or Abuelita, the Spanish word for Grandmother) comes to tell them that their Aunt Rosalita has decided to elope...next week...in Odyssey...at their house! Then relative after relative arrives to stay with the family. Where will the chaos end?
Matthew, Olivia, and Camilla Parker are at Whit's End. They tell Whit about their crazy week, which starts when their Abuelita, came for a visit. When Abuelita got to their house, she informs them that Eva Parker's sister has decided to get married, at their house! All of their family comes, causing an incredible amount of mayhem.
After Matthew, Olivia and Camilla are finished with their drinks, their father comes to take the kids to the wedding. They find out that the bride-to-be eloped with her first boyfriend the previous night. Eva finally has had enough and yells at Abuelita, who apologizes for treating Eva the way that she did. Eva accepts her apology, and they have a fiesta. Abuelita decides to stay for a few more weeks.

- Read a devotional thought about this show.
- The characters Rosalita and Orlando are probably an allusion to the play by William Shakespeare, As You Like It, which features a couple named Rosalind and Orlando.
