Angelina Jolie hates Thanksgiving, but she's not a joyless person.
The actress and partner Brad Pitt treated their children to a hot air balloon ride to celebrate son Pax's birthday in Paris. The Vietnamese native turned seven!
Pax, Brad, Angelina, nine-year-old Cambodian son Maddox, five-year-old Ethiopian daughter Zahara and four-year-old biological daughter Shiloh all took part.
PARISIAN PAIR: Brad is also promoting Megamind in Europe.
The balloon operator said: "They were like any other family. There was nothing out of the ordinary which made them any different from any other family."
He added that throughout the ride, the couple's children were "excited but very well-behaved. What I think they wanted was a little moment of peace."
"Angelina is a very beautiful woman in person. She was friendly and spoke to me. Brad is very nice and very outgoing. He played a lot with the kids."
A crew member said: "We made a short cruise up-river. They stayed on for about 90 minutes," aboard a boat decorated with blue and yellow balloons.
They were AWOL on Thursday, leaving the kids with nannies, but Brad and Angelina were spotted taking Shiloh and Zahara shopping in Paris Saturday.
