Name This Insect... Again!

I was in our backyard today with my younger sister and brother.  I was doing a photo shoot of Allie when I spotted this amazing bug!  From a distance it looked like a ladybug, but closer it looks a lot bigger and it doesn't seem like it has wings to me.  It is about twice the size of the average ladybug and I found it on our purple cabbage plant in the garden.  Here are the photos, if you know what they are please comment and tell me! Thanks!

I'm pretty sure those are Harlequin Beetles. I have seen them at El Dorado Nature Center with my kids. :) By the way, our homeschooling family really enjoys your blog! ~Lisa Halverson
