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.
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!
