Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, and their daughter Violet spent a lovely afternoon together stopping for lunch and a trip to the post office in Santa Monica yesterday. Today is Violet Affleck's 6th birthday — see her cutest photos — and the family will be able to celebrate together after a Fall scattered about. Jennifer, Ben, and their girls spent Thanksgiving at home in California, though the season has been marked by a lot of travel for the Garner-Afflecks. Ben's latest directorial and starring vehicle, Argo, brought him to Turkey and Washington DC in recent weeks. As for Jennifer, she may be grounded for now in the final months of her third pregnancy. The fifth Garner-Affleck is expected in early 2012, when we'll finally see if it's another adorable girl or a first son for the couple.
