Dressed casually as they soaked up some southern California sunshine – with Wentz carrying 2-year-old Bronx on one hip – the young family stopped by the Beverly Glen Mall in Los Angeles Thursday and picked up some coffee and iced tea at a Starbucks.

Added the onlooker: “Ashlee kept smiling and lovingly leaned on Pete.”
