Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A touching story about a young girl who has taken it upon herself to run her household since her Dad died. One day her grandparents invite her to a 'pipi swing', something they used to do with her dad. Assuming she's going to a formal dance, the young girl wonders why she needs to wear her boardshorts, and actually feels a bit grumpy about the whole deal. Of course, the family ends up at the beach, swinging about to get pipi out of the sand
