Marble Slab Creamery

Yesterday Jimmy & I made a special trip to Marble Slab Creamery to visit my grandson Zac. I got up yesterday morning and told Jimmy that I wanted to go see Zac because I haven't seen him in a while. Kids are soooo busy these days...and besides it's been very hard for anyone to catch us at home also.

Zac and his girlfriend Alison had stopped by the house, a few weeks back...I found their note on the front door...but we weren't hoo. I really hated to have missed them because it's always such a joy when the grandkids stop by.

Did I mention that Marble Slab Creamery is an ice-cream parlor? You receive friendly service with a smile along with a freshly made waffle cone that Zac makes. They also make the ice-cream right on the about fresh!

I asked the young lady in the above picture if she wouldn't mind if I took her picture with her cone and Zac, being the film maker that he is, asked for the cone back and told us it would look better if he was handing her the cone....And he's right! The picture looks GREAT!

Here's my sweet grandson, stopping to visit with Jimmy & I. Zac had said that business had been slow that day with only one other couple stopping in for ice-cream before we arrived.

Zac fixed me a up with a waffle cone filled with dark chocolate ice-cream and topped with another scoop of strawberry...yummy. Jimmy asked for his ice-cream in a cup...and he said to be sure to tell my blogger friends how BIG the cones were...So blogfriends, consider yourselves told. (Does this count as Jimmy's first guest blogging sentence?) *LOL*

Zac said that we brought him luck...or customers...because they started rolling in soon after we arrived.

Here's Zac before the rush of customers began coming in. I'm so proud of Zac! He is such a talented young man. He has his blog you know, it's called ICECAZ, he also plays Bass guitar in his Christian band called 4:12. The band takes its name from the scripture, 1 Timothy 4:12 "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity." I have to stop and go get me a tissue because, when I read these words of scripture, that Zac lives by, it makes me so happy, that I cry.

I'm back....As I mentioned above, Zac is a film maker and owns his own company...And for being just 19 years old I think that's quite an accomplishment already. At least he knows where he's going and what he wants to do with his life.

Of course while his company is getting on its feet, he still has to pay the rent, so everyone come on over to the Marble Slab Creamery for a dip of ice-cream. It's located off the Man O War exit off I-75 in Lexington, Kentucky...2304 Sir Barton Way.

It's great to have a relative in the ice cream business. Yum.

Sue said...

I wonder if your Marble Slab is related to our Cold Stone Creamery? The ice cream is over the top yummy,& the decor looks very similar.
We reserve it for special treats as I can quickly find those 4# there that Tammy lost!

Glad you got to see him,he is as sweet as the ice-cream.

What a nice visit with your handsome grandson Sandy! That ice cream sounds good to me and especially since they make it, I'll bet it's extra good. He does sound like such a nice young man.

I enjoyed your other posts below that I didn't comment on, because I'm just now trying to read a few! Whew, it's hard sometimes when other things get in the way!!

If I was closer I would be regular customer as I LOVE icecream!! Zac is a nice young man with great wisdom!

Great looking grandson, I know you are proud of him. He seems to have a great head on his shoulders, also, for someone 19. The ice creams sounds great too!

Peter said...

Sorry it's a bit too far to go for an icecream Sandy.

Paige said...

Yummy... when next I am in that area I will be sure to pop in... yummy

Paige said...

Ok, I'm back. I just read your comment at Tim's Ramblings. I'm still grinning.

I just want to say Happy BIG OL' TEXAS Weekend to you gummy butt


Alice said...

I'm on my way to sample that ice-cream - although it may be winter time before I get there!

Zac sounds like a wonderful young man. No wonder you are so proud of him.

Sandy ~ Looks like you should get a kick-back for advertising for Zac's Ice Cream company here? Also looks like a place I would be gaining a few TOO MANY unwanted pounds! I am glad it's about 1,000 miles away too! ~ jb///

Sounds like a great place to meet for a bloggers' convention!
Zac is indeed a young man with a sense of purpose and headed in the right direction. No wonder you're a proud grandma :)

PEA said...

Groan...waffle cones are my favourite!!!! Maybe it's a good thing I don't live near that place! lol He's a very handsome man and it's no wonder you're so very proud of him, he sounds very accomplished also!!

what a fun visit.

I have a container of Double Vanilla Ice Cream in the freezer. You've inspired me to go open it and have a bowl. :)


Laura said...

There's a Marble Slab near our house, it's delicious! I don't get to go there very often, but it's goooood.:0

And Zac? He sounds amazing! He's an inspiration to us old(er) folks too. ;)
