Couple go to West Virginia for baptism

Everybody knows there’s no party like a baptism. OK, that’s not actually a thing, but still!

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner baptized their son, Samuel, over the weekend in Jen’s hometown of Charleston, West Virginia. How sweet is that?

The christening was performed on Sunday at Garner’s family church, Christ Church United Methodist. One-year-old Samuel was accompanied by his whole family, including his sisters: seven-year-old Violet and four-year-old Seraphina.

According to witnesses, Violet was quite compliant with the church environment, but Seraphina was chased about by Affleck on several occasions and would not settle down.

The couple also celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary this weekend with a private dinner and a trip to an ice cream parlour, where Affleck reportedly tipped employees $100 each.

Sounds like this family had an eventful weekend! We’re glad this couple makes time for the family and each other.
