Weekend Plans

Ruslana met some of her immediate family members for the first time this past weekend.

First up was a meeting with grandpa (my dad). We discovered a great restaurant for Ruslana--Souplantation. She can load up on tomatoes, cucumbers, and her beloved soup and bread.  Ruslana and grandpa had a fun time singing a Ukrainian song together, watching the Redlands bike race, and enjoying a scoop of chocolate ice cream.
Meeting Grandpa
The next day she met her aunts, uncles, cousins, and great grandparents.  At first she was pretty shy and somewhat overwhelmed with the number of people wanting to meet her, but over the course of the day she started to open up and enjoy her new family.  She especially loved playing catch and bowling with her cousins.  We've discovered that she's got quite a throwing arm!
Meeting Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins
She also experienced In-n-Out for the first time.  She loved it!  I guess our girl has some American taste buds after all.

Here's to two of God's greatest gifts--family and In-n-Out!
