On se reposa ensuite pendant quelques heures

What is the function of 'ensuite' in this sentence? It doesn't seem to appear in the translation ' we then rested for a few hours'. Perhaps it should be 'we then rested together for a few hours.'?

Bonjour Chris,

On se reposa ensuite pendant quelques heures we then rested for a few hours

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Ensuite is in a bit of an unexpected place in the sentence. Usually you'd put it up front: Ensuite on se reposa pendant quelques heures.
