Ben Affleck shows off his skills while on daddy duty this weekend in Santa Barbara.

The actor giggled along with daughter Violet as they spent time together on a rocky beach off the coast of California near the exclusive Bacara Resort & Spa.

Ben and Jen were in town to attend the wedding of Jennifer's assistant at Montecito Country Club where Jen served as a bridesmaid.

After this weekend, Ben is now one step closer to "Father of the Year."
