Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner with daughters Violet and Seraphina
Did you go to your town's 4th of July parade? Did you spray suntan lotion on squirming children? Did you wear red, white, and blue clothing and sit your butt on a curb in the hot sun all in the name of patriotism and kid-friendly fun? Did you carry a tote bag full of snacks, bottled water, and spare napkins? If so, then you probably have a lot in common with Jennifer Garner, the World's Most Down-to-Earth Celebrity Mom.
She and husband Ben Affleck took adorable daughters Violet and Seraphina to their local Pacific Palisades 4th of July parade and cuteness and normalcy ensued. The explosion you just heard was my heart blowing up.
I mean, am I the only dying over these photos? They may as well have all worn matching Old Navy tees. Jen in her red tank, blue capri jeans, white Keds, and navy blue West Virginia baseball cap was so all-American, so all-Mom, that I couldn't help but salute her as the General of Cool.
And how hot does our Ben look? He looks more Hollywood than Jen in dark jeans, a white button-down, black boots, and Ray-Bans, but still quite normal. He could use a little conditioner, but otherwise, he's a total DILF.
Violet pretty much stole the show in her picnic-table cloth jumper and matching eyeglasses. She's so cute I want to mount her on my wall. Younger sis Seraphina was in the celebrating spirit too -- Mom dressed her in a blue jean romper with red and white hair ribbons.
The Affleck/Garner clan is so low-fi they make me look like a starlet. I cannot get enough of these images! I just imagine they argued over what music to listen to on the car ride over and that they stopped at a freaking Cracker Barrel for lunch on the ride home (do they have those in California?).
Ben, Jen, Violet, and Seraphina make me want to be a better person. They also make me want to dress like a flag and park myself on the side of the street and cheer until I'm blue in the face. Just saying.
Do you think Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are the most normal people in Hollywood?
