He Had A Dream

My Dad had a dream. Once upon a time he wanted to buy some hunting ground and build a log cabin on it. Little did he know at the time that his dream would someday be a place filled with so many special memories for his ever growing family.



That place is called Almost Heaven. In 1998, the dream started becoming a wonderful reality.

The family was much smaller at the time, but that would soon change. (fall 1998)


This special place held a lake for swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking, and a beautiful view.
We never ever tire of seeing all of the beautiful deer that roam these woods, along with many other critters, flowers, blackberries, springs, and even an old abandoned cemetary.


There's always fun to be had whether it's water fights...... lounging on the porch..........
playing a game of jump rope......

and the ever popular Gator rides around the land.....

pile in and off we go........

and the annual Bozarth Boys Memorial Day Campout.........

So on this Father's Day, Dad, thank you for starting an amazing family tradition and a special place that the family can always gather to have fun, hang out, and make amazing memories together. This is truly a dream come true for your family. We love you!!!

Easter 2010


Happy Father's Day Dad!

That is so awesome! It is a little boy heaven, isn't it?

I can really relate to this post. It sounds so much like my in-laws' cabin that we go to up north. :)

Oh Kelly, you made me cry. That was a wonderful tribute to a wonderful man. Your Dad has always held a special place in my heart and he deserves the recognition. He's a wonderful brother, husband, father and grandfather. Now I better stop before it goes to his head.

What a wonderful post Kelly...I am sure your Dad had no idea just what a wonderful place Almost Heaven would be to so many. Cody told his co-worker this year that the Memorial Day camp out for his family was like Christmas to most! Happy Father's Day John, and thank for the memories.
