Making a Splash

Story and Photo by Christina Hawkins

Last summer, I went with my husband Michael and daughter Hayden, who was then four, to a “secret” private pond in the western part of the state. It has a zip-line, a giant water slide, a little sand beach, and other fun stuff, but the owner asked me not to name the place, for fear of being overrun.

I’m not a professional photographer, but I do have a passion for capturing fun moments and beautiful images [see “Feeding the Fox,” IDAHO magazine, February 2015]. What I love about this picture is that these two didn’t know I was watching them and taking photos. They were having great fun. Hayden was splashing her daddy and, for a while, he took it. I don’t think she expected him to splash her back with such force. The surprised look on my daughter’s face makes this capture hilarious to me.
