Getting ready for an evening of family celebratory fun, Jennifer Garner was spotted picking up her daughter, Violet Affleck, on her 4th birthday in Santa Monica on Tuesday (December 1).
Joined by her mother in-law Chris Affleck as she carried little Seraphina in her arms, the former "Alias" actress gave her birthday girl a big hug before quickly loading up in the family car and driving away.
The celebratory outing comes as Jen gears up for more work duties - as she'll be focusing her efforts on the Jim Field Smith directed comedy, "Butter".
Based off of Jason A. Micallef's screenplay, "Butter" is set in the Midwest U.S., where "an adopted girl discovers her talent for butter carving and finds herself pitted against an ambitious local woman in their town's annual contest."
