ensconced with family

Our 4-year-old biological son, Ryan, and our 3-year-old foster son, BlueJay, were happily ensconced with family for the afternoon. It was only the second time Mike and I had been truly alone since we welcomed BlueJay into our home four months ago.

here in the sentence, family is used without a, the , my, etc...

So, I'm wondering who 'family' refers to.

Is it general way to refer to relatives?

thanks in advance~!
