Not many adults get the chance to relive the endless possibility of childhood. Peggy and Will Line channeled their inner 12-year-olds — minus the limitations — when they built a treehouse near Wadena that's now available to rent for overnight stays. "We were the best of 12 because we had unlimited access to wood and we had no parental control, so we were able to dream and build," she said.
