While Jess was perhaps working on her billion dollar fashion empire, Eric packed up the kids (and Jess's mom, Tina) and took them to Santa Monica for a few hours in the sun.
Eric splashed around in the ocean with his son, Ace, and the father/son duo wore matching blue bathing suits—and no shirts!
And almost two-year-old Ace was having a pretty great time getting thrown in the air by his dad, but can you blame him?
Clearly the beach is favorite family spot for the Johnsons—Jess shared this cute photo of her "blue eyed soulmates" a few months ago on Instagram. Next time, all we're asking for is an invite, k?
What do you think of Eric's beach day with his kid? Where do you think Jessica was? Tweet us @OKMagazine.
