Two hands. Four sticky little faces. Angelina Jolie was one busy mom on napkin patrol when she and Brad Pitt took their oldest kids for gelato in Venice on Feb. 16. "The kids' mouths were covered in ice cream," says an observer. "Ms. Jolie was having a hard time trying to clean up the drips."

The smallest Jolie-Pitts also got to play tourist: Twins Knox and Vivienne, 19 months, made a few rare public appearances as Jolie started production on her thriller The Tourist, costarring Johnny Depp. The surprises didn't end there. On Feb. 21, Jolie's father, Jon Voight, 71, came to visit. Their long estrangement has thawed over the past year. "He's crazy about his grandkids," says Voight's rep, noting that he also spent Christmas with the family. Voight was at an event in Ireland and flew to Venice to "spend a day with all of them. It was wonderful."
