Jennifer Garner held hands with her daughter Seraphina after they picked up breakfast at the Brentwood Country Mart in LA this morning. The girls had some mother-daughter time while Sera's older sister, Violet, was off at school and her little brother, Samuel, was elsewhere. One thing that brings the Garner kids together with their parents, though, is reading. Jennifer recently opened up to People magazine about what her little ones like to read. She said, "We love A Series Of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. My daughter Violet is so into the series, she talks about the Baudelaire kids like they are part of our family. It's a blast."
Jennifer Garner joined her three kids, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel, for an outing in Santa Monica yesterday. Jen's youngest, Sam, stole the show — and his mom's drink — hitting the pavement to display his walking skills. Jen returned to her kids following a reported weekend getaway to St. Lucia for a special star-studded occasion. Jen apparently joined her husband, Ben Affleck, to attended Matt Damon and Luciana Damon's wedding vow renewal along with Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky, as well as Ben's brother, Casey Affleck.
Jen may be gearing up to spend more time away from her little ones with rumored new projects in the works. She is in talks to star in the upcoming film Draft Day alongside Kevin Costner, and Ben recently revealed that he would be taking over parenting duties to allow her to get back to work.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner shared a sweet kiss while running errands with their kids in Santa Monica yesterday.

Ben recently revealed that he is preparing to take over parenting duties while Jennifer heads back to work for several upcoming projects. One of her possible new roles could be in Draft Day, a film with Kevin Costner, although there has been no confirmation on the new movie.
Ben Affleck grabbed ice cream with Jennifer Garner and Seraphina in LA yesterday. He hung out with his wife and youngest daughter ahead of his big premiere for To the Wonder later that night. We may see more instances of Ben hanging out with his kids without Jennifer, as he recently revealed that he is going to be taking on a "Mr. Mom" role with Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel as his wife prepares for several new projects. She will reportedly costar with Kevin Costner in Draft Day, an upcoming football drama, and has press duties for Dallas Buyers Club to look forward to later this year.
Jennifer Garner ran errands around LA solo yesterday afternoon before bringing her daughter Violet Affleck along for a trip to Brentwood Country Mart. Violet showed off a wide grin with a missing tooth as she and her mom stopped into the James Perse store. It's been a week of fun for Jennifer and her kids that included a stop at McDonald's for Happy Meals, karate class, and even a pony ride for Vi's little sister, Seraphina, at the LA farmers market. Dad Ben Affleck has some work to do, though, gearing up for the April 12 release of his latest film, To the Wonder. His costar Rachel McAdams stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to talk about their film, which also stars Javier Bardem and Olga Kurylenko.
Seraphina Affleck got a chance to hop on a pony during an LA farmers market outing with mom Jennifer Garner and sister Violet. Jennifer took the kids to their local market after the family, including Samuel, visited a hardware store in Pacific Palisades on Saturday to pick up gardening supplies.

Her family time comes just as news has surfaced that Jennifer Garner may costar with Kevin Costner in a new football film. The new job opportunity would be Jen's second for this year as she wrapped up filming Dallas Buyers Club with Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto in January.

Jennifer Garner took her daughters, Violet and Seraphina, to karate class in LA yesterday. Her activity run with the girls comes just one day after she made a stop at a local gym to get in some exercise. Before her workout trip on Thursday, Jennifer took Violet to McDonald's for a Happy Meal. She's been spending quite a bit of time with her family in recent weeks, but she may be back to work soon enough as she is reportedly in negotiations to costar in a new film with Kevin Costner. Possible new projects aside, Jennifer has something to celebrate in the coming weeks — she'll be ringing in her birthday on April 17.
