Recently separated couple Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli take their daughters shopping in Sherman Oaks, Calif. over the weekend.

This trip to the toy store gives new meaning to "awkward family photo."

Soon-to-be exes Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli took daughters Lola, 9, and Fiona, 5, for a shopping spree in Sherman Oaks, Calif., over the weekend and from the looks of this photo snapped by X17online photographers, these two haven't found their separated-but-still-friends groove. The body language alone leads us to believe there is a laundry list of things they'd rather be doing, but both Garth and Facinelli have made it clear they will do what is best for their girls when it comes to their split. "We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together," they said in a statement

Plenty of famous couples have managed to find the balance post-split -- Courteney Cox and David Arquette have been very vocal about their ability to remain best friends, just not husband and wife -- but it seems Facinelli and Garth may need a little time.

The pair only announced their split earlier this month, ending their 11-year marriage in a joint statement saying, "While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children. We ask for privacy and respect during this time."

Days later, in a preview for Garth's new reality show, the 39-year-old actress opened up about how the separation will affect her three daughters and the future of her family. "Being out here on my own with the girls is not going to be easy, but I know it's the right thing for us right now," she said. The show, "Jennie Garth: Little Bit Country," will premiere on CMT in April and will offer an inside look at how Garth and her girls navigate their new life.
