Edmonton Trip

I have been to Edmonton countless times in my life but this trip was far more memorable then that.  My coworker Evan and I had got the opportunity to take 9 guys from the YFCHL (our inner city floor hockey league) to Edmonton for 5 days.  It was a crazy idea but was totally worth it.  We were able to go to explore West Edmonton Mall, the Alberta Legislature building and a bunch of other cool spots in Edmonton.  For several of theses guys it was there first experience in Edmonton.  There were a whole bunch of "firsts" for these guys.  Some of the firsts that these guys got to experience were first time on a roller coast, first time on a big waterslide, first time in a "fancier" sit down restaurant, and for some it was their first time in Edmonton.  It is always a fantastic feeling to be able to give these guys the opportunity to experience new things.  I am excited how these relationships are cultivated in the upcoming year as be reminisce on the shared experiences on this trip.
