Cambridge's Ben Affleck had two reasons to celebrate this weekend.

The Oscar-winning actor-producer-director and his wife, Jennifer Garner, celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary Saturday night in Garner's hometown of Charleston, W. Va., where they also baptized their son, Samuel, 16-months-old on Sunday, according to People.

The couple had daughters Seraphina, 7, and Violet, 4, in tow at the baptism, which took place at Garner's family church, Christ Church United Methodist.

While Violet was well-behaved, Affleck had to continuously wrangle her older sister during the church ceremony, according to a parishioner who spoke to People.

"Seraphina was funny she was running around, and Ben had to keep getting up to run after [her]," the source said.

The couple celebrated their anniversary with a low-key dinner at the local pizza joint, Pies & Pints, according the People, where they had pizza, beer, and salad. Pies & Pints owner Robyn Lindeman told the magazine that Ben and Jen are regulars when they're in town.
