We're still shaken up about the news that Eric Dane (Mark Sloan) is leaving Grey's Anatomy, but seeing him spend quality time with his family is easing the pain a bit.

Spotted out and about in Brentwood, CA  yesterday (July 29), the former on-screen doc (*tear*) was seen shopping with his wife Rebecca Gayheart and adorable daughter Billie Beatrice. We must say, Eric and his family are looking mighty relaxed and happy — just look at that Sunday scruff he's rocking!

With his big Grey's departure, we'll probably be seeing a lot more of these Dane family moments in the future. And on top of that, Eric told TVLine last week that he'd be pursuing other career opportunities. Anyone else hoping to see this hottie on the big screen? Silver lining, people, silver lining.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 will premiere on Thursday, September 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
