Her reputation as an all-American girl next door was dented somewhat after her embarrassing arrest for disorderly conduct last month. But
Reese Witherspoon is slowly getting back to normal and spent Wednesday
on a family day out with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe and their
children Ava, 13, and nine-year-old Deacon. The 37-year-old actress seemed in good spirits as she watched her blonde mini-me compete on the track.

Reese has since described having to tell her young children was 'the hardest part' about her arrest. 'You
have to say when you make a mistake, you have to take responsibility,'
she told Good Morning America. 'And we are taking responsibility and
doing everything in our power to make it right. You just have to be
honest with them. That was definitely the hardest part.'Reese
