Thanksgiving was an extra special this year for Rick Hayes, he of Hayes Instruments, Hayes Productions Studio and the band Nightflyer. Rick and his wife Lyn had welcomed twin grand babies the week before we all paused for the Thanksgiving break.
The happy parents are Lyn’s daughter Brittany Markus and her husband Josh, and the twins are their first children.
Lyn shared this description of how it all went down.
“First baby McKenna Marie Markus was delivered the morning or November 20 at 9:56 a.m. here in Cincinnati. She was 5 lbs. 12 oz. and 19″ long. Her brother, Liam Jason Markus was a little stubborn and finally arrived at 10:00 a.m. weighing 6 lbs. 7 oz and 20″ long. (They were delivered via c-section.)
Babies, Mom and Dad are all doing well. I don’t know if we have any bluegrassers between the two babies — Josh is a DJ on the weekends, and I’m not talking bluegrass! I guess it will be up to Rick and me.
What a wonderful Thanksgiving gift they are!”
Congratulations to the Hayes and Markus families, and a hearty bluegrass welcome to Liam and McKenna.
