Yesterday Kanye West was spotted out and about in Santa Monica, and he wasn't exactly cheesing it up for X17 photographers, but he didn't give us a beat down either. Hey, that works!

Over the weekend Kanye, baby mama Kim Kardashian and their daughter North flew to Oklahoma to pay their respects to West's grandfather, Portwood Williams Sr., who passed away on August 10. Kim first met West's grandfather back in February, and at the time he told the New York Daily News, "She is beautiful - and she's just as sweet as she is beautiful - and that's what I liked about her! She was just down to earth, she's rich, and those kinds of people, they've got everything." Awww! This also marked baby North's first trip.

Before these photos were snapped, Kanye taped an appearance on Kris Jenner's show, and he revealed that he's "so in love" with Kim that he even thought about "playing sports" to catch her attention, as she previously dated a string of atheletes. Kanye's interview will air on Friday ... we'll be watching!

But is it just us, or has Yeezus put on some pounds since the birth of little Nori? Looks like he and Kim are really in this together!
