The Argo director, 40, gave wife Garner, 40, a loving kiss on the head, hug and shared a few laughs while watching their daughters play in Santa Monica. The couple's 12-month-old son Samuel stayed at home during the family day out, which included a visit to a balloon artist for the girls.

During his Best Picture acceptance speech at the Oscars in February, Affleck said of his marriage to Garner, "It's work, but it's the best work there is. And there's no one else I'd rather work with." 

Earlier this month, Affleck told Us Weekly he was enjoying some time off from work to spend with his family. "Luckily, I've been able to just enjoy my good fortune the last couple of weeks, just sit back and take it in, not do anything, eat ice cream on the couch," he told Us . "It's been a nice time, hanging out with my wife, that sort of thing, and we're enjoying it."
