Stocking up for Thanksgiving? The Schwarzenegger children pitch in to help mother Maria Shriver do the big grocery shop

Close knit: Maria Shriver is joined by her sons Patrick and Christopher and daughter Katherine for a shopping trip to Whole Foods in Brentwood yesterday

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, it is the last weekend left for families to stock up on turkey and all the trimmings.

So perhaps the close-knit Schwarzenegger family were getting supplies for Thursday's big feast as they went grocery shopping in Los Angeles yesterday.

Patrick, 18, Katherine, 21 and Christopher, 14, helped their mother Maria do the family shop as they paid a visit to healthy store Whole Foods.

The quartet emerged from the store, near the family's Brentwood home, with a trolley laden with bags.

The children then each pitched in to help their mother load the car up before driving away.

However, there was no sign today of Maria's younger daughter Christine, 22.

The family were all dressed casually, with Maria teaming a long patterned cardigan with black pedal pushers and practical sneakers.

Later, Maria and Katherine spent some mother and daughter bonding time together, with Katherine smiling and laughing as she strolled down the street.

Patrick was also later spotted taking his dog for a walk at the Brentwood County Mart.

It is unclear whether Arnold Schwarzenegger will be seeing his children over the Thanksgiving holiday.

He and his estranged wife Maria have an amicable relationship since their split earlier this year, and he was recently spotted attending church with her.

She has filed from divorce from the Terminator star after he admitted to fathering love child Joseph with their former maid Mildred Baena 14 years ago.
