Mom and son bonding time!
Jennifer Garner and son Samuel, who turned 1 last week, enjoyed a lunch date together in Los Angeles on Tuesday – dining at the rustic, wine country-inspired Napa Valley Grille in Westwood Village.
Garner, 40, was dressed casually in navy blue trousers, a white crew neck sweater and snakeskin flats. Samuel was matching adorably in a navy and gray striped outfit.
Ten days removed from husband Ben Affleck's big night at the Oscars, Garner enjoyed chef Taylor Boudreaux's chicken kale salad and sipped on an iced tea. Samuel had the grilled chicken and steamed veggies off the kid's menu.
Garner was in good spirits, smiling to everyone, and was joined by a girlfriend.
