doodle bug fun

Happy Friday friends! 

Hayden and I have been outside the past few mornings enjoying the cool breeze.  While hanging outside Hayden has been collecting rollie pollies.  Otherwise known as doodle bugs or pill bugs.  I'm not sure how many names they have.  All I know is they are EVERYWHERE!

We are being invaded by them.  I am so thankful they are nice little creatures.  It wouldn't be fun to be invaded by roaches or spiders, but pill bugs I can handle!

Playing with and capturing these little dudes keeps Hayden busy for hours!

Some of the bugs are small, some are large.

Of course Hayden sets them free when he is done capturing them.

They go free until the next day and we search for them all over again.

What do you call these little creatures?  I am curious?

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! I have no idea what the bugs are. Gross?? HAHA! I wish we had some cool breezes. All we have is high temps & even higher humidity!

Wow! You do have a lot of them. In Cleveland, we actually call them potato bugs. Absolutely no clue why but that is what I have always called them. Totally gross I know!

We call them Rollie Pollies:) For some reason we don't have very many at our house, but when I was younger they were everywhere at my grandma's house! We played with them for hours! My boys like to catch crickets and put them in bottles:)
