Ben's Bundle of Joy

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."
