Jacques be nimble, Jacques be quick!

Three of the Jolie-Pitt children took a field trip to the market in New Orleans on Wednesday, bringing along their English bulldog, Jacques, for the snack run.

On the walk, the kids – Maddox, 10, Zahara, 7, and Shiloh, 5 – each took a turn holding the leash, guiding Jacques as he sniffed around the Big Easy.

As if that weren’t enough sign that the Jolie-Pitt children are growing up fast, at one point, Maddox pulled out a cell phone and took a call from someone. But things went back to being playful when Shiloh started a game of hide-and-seek behind a trash bin.

While the kids were out exploring the neighborhood, Brad was out on his motorcycle having some grown-up fun of his own.
