And to understand the particular wording in your text, the following step-by-step deconstruction might help make it clear:

Nuestros padres se pusieron contentos: Our parents became happy.

…lo contento que se pusieron nuestros padres: …how happy our parents became.

Lo mejor de todo es lo contento que se pusieron nuestros padres: And the best of all was how happy our parents became.

If they’d been speaking English, they might instead have said, “And the best of all was how happy it made our parents.”
