What do you call a boy lady bug?

I don't know, but I don't think it matters?
We went to the garden center and bought...yes, we bought lady bugs. The kids had to take turns holding them all the way home. Who knew they would be so popular?

Can you guess how many are in our little container, its about the size of a sour cream container?
(Scroll down to the end for the answer)

There are so many, the kids couldn't get enough.

We had to wait for sun down to let them go and after the sprinklers went off. It said to do this so that they wouldn't fly away, because they don't fly at night.

We put them around our roses, lilacs, and other flowers. The kids had a hard time saying good bye to their new little friends, holding on to hopefully seeing them in the morning.

Now for the answer as to how many they sell in one of those containers.......1500!!!!
Can you believe it?
