Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck work, play in Atlanta

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck and their children are all in Atlanta while Mom and Dad work on separate movie projects.

Jen is filming "Miracles From Heaven," about a young girl miraculously cured of a serious illness. The movie, also starring Queen Latifah, set up shop in downtown Covington the other day for a scene taking place in a small town in Texas.

Ben is here working on "Live By Night," a Prohibition-era film he also is directing. That project stars Zoe Saldana, Elle Fanning and Sienna Miller.

In his downtime Ben has enjoyed some of Atlanta's sites including the National Center for Civil and Human Rights. He also took the kids to the Fernbank Science Center the other day.
