We made it! We left Doha at 10:30 am Friday morning on a flight headed to Washington, D.C. The twins did as well as could be expected, not wonderful but not terrible. My plans for them to nap and then sleep like they were down for the night didn't quite work out. They slept about 4 hours total of the 14 hour flight. So, you can imagine our exhaustion when we arrived in DC at 6:30 pm, 1:30 am Doha time. Our long layover became even longer when we learned that our flight to St Louis was delayed by two and a half hours. We finally arrived in St Louis at 1:30 am, 23 hours after we began our trip. We've had one full day in the States now, with a Walmart trip under our belts, and we're feeling pretty good, exhausted but happy.
