Micah Johnson and Kendall Larsen enjoy their snacks as their fathers — Drew Johnson and Colin Larsen chat at the Father-Daughter Dinner and Dance.
They came dressed to the hilt. The girls shined in their dresses and showed off their corsages to their friends, other dads and, yes, complete strangers. The dads showed that they clean up very well, too. They broke out the ties, the sweaters and sport coats. In other words, it was your typical...
