Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner drove up to Santa Barbara this weekend to meet some friends for a play date at the beach, and the happy couple and their three children had a blast frolicking in the waves. 2-month-old baby Samuel spent most of his time in the shade with the nanny while Ben, Jen, Violet and Seraphina had their fun in the sun.
Ben has appeared stressed after working non-stop on Argo and several other film projects over the past few months, but Violet was able to get him to crack a smile with her playful antics. Awww!
A X17 photographer on the scene tells us, "Ben and Jen looked blissful. It's rare to see the whole family together, but you can tell that having a third child — a boy — has really brought Ben and Jennifer closer together."
Think they'll stay together forever?
